Readers of my old Spectator blog might recall that there were two figures I couldn't leave alone, both equally ridiculous. One of them was the Yazzmonster, who is otherwise known as Yasmin Alibhai-Brown. For my sins, I used some years ago to share a BBC microphone with her on Saturday mornings, and I have never properly recovered.
Reading her Independent column was always good blog-fodder, but I vowed when I started here to ignore it. With the odd exception, I haven't read a word of hers, and the effect on my blood pressure has been good.
