A cautionary tale for all columnists

In the end, you always risk outstaying your welcome…. From a 2005 British Journalism Review article by Tom Stoppard, whose fascination with the news business dates back to his apprenticeship on the Western Daily Press, a staid broadsheet I used to deliver on my paper round. (The whole of the piece is worth reading, even if you don’t agree with his views on Margaret Thatcher, Wapping and the print unions.)
