The key facts

I'm back.

To the important news that Christopher Lee has been knighted. As Michael Gove writes today:

The Queen reads The Times.

How else to explain Her Majesty's wonderful decision at the weekend to mark
her birthday by knighting Christopher Lee? For years we have been
campaigning restlessly in The Times for this honour and now the Queen has
acted, Sir Christopher can relax in style. With his arms crossed over his
chest. In the soil of his native earth.

What Michael does not say, however, is that he once appeared alongside Sir Christopher, in A Feast at Midnight.

You never know when that sort of thing might crop up in a pub quiz. You'll thank me for the info one day.
