I’m surprised and amused by the allegations that I wrote or contributed to the Economist ‘ineffectual buffoon’ piece. I did not.
While flattered to be associated with the Economist, whose literary style I immensely admire, I cannot claim ANY credit for that piece
I am not and have never been one to be anonymous when making journalistic comments about people. I do not hide behind anonymity
I will be sending a letter to the online publication that fabricated the allegation, asking for a retraction and a public apology
Moral of the Story: beware of rumours that cause those who fall for them to tweet like ineffectual buffoons.
