Giles Coren Is Journalism’s Christ-Like Figure

by | 25th, July 2008

GILES Coren is hard to like. He is a mixture of smugness and over-promotion. Giles Coren has written a note to the sub-editors at the Times. You can read it all here (typos and all).  

“I only wrote that sodding paragraph to make that joke. And you’ve f****** stripped it out like a p***** Irish plasterer restoring a renaissance fresco and thinking jesus looks s*** with a bear (sic) so plastering over it.
