Arise, Lord Gnome!

From the Ephraim Hardcastle column in the Daily Mail today: "Colleagues at Private Eye magazine say its outspoken editor, Ian Hislop, 50, a panellist on Have I Got News For You, is very proud a Chelsea Flower Show dahlia was named after him but now wonders, ahem, if greater honours may be just over the horizon."

Colleagues at Private Eye say that's about as accurate as anything Peter McKay has ever written about Ian...

The lead story in the current Street of Shame is about Paul Dacre's rage at his failure to bag a peerage in Brown's resignation honours. I wonder if these two facts could be in any way related?
