Content Summary: He remarks humorously on a 'Sunday Sun' article. Those hastening from the gifted manager's lecture on 'Hamlet' (which no one had ever heard of) is worthy of MPs who used to rush from the House to be in time for Mark Anthony's oration. How do they get into the papers and who is the ass on the 'S.Sun'? No reflection on the Revd Mr Blathwayt. He will be back on Thursday.
