Graham Norton has quit the Telegraph.

https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radi ... ham-norton
Graham Norton has said he stopped writing for the Daily Telegraph because the newspaper’s recent “toxic” political stances increasingly made him feel “nauseous”.

The BBC One chat show presenter wrote the newspaper’s advice column for 12 years before stepping down without explanation at the end of 2018. Norton has now said he decided to leave the outlet after it defended the likes of US supreme court then-nominee Brett Kavanaugh and published articles by future prime minister Boris Johnson containing falsehoods.

He said: “When I signed up to be their agony aunt, I was aware that it was a rightwing paper and that didn’t bother me, but about a year before I left, it took a turn and there were some things in that paper about which I thought, ‘I cannot be contained within the same pages as this.’

The Telegraph said Brexit was like the Shawshank Redemption – only 5 responses you need

In the all-time top 10 lists of worst front pages of all time, today’s effort from the Daily Telegraph is up there, right up there.

I mean, just … look at it.

Boris does indeed convey the feeling that he's been adapted from a short story by Stephen King.
One featuring a scary clown perhaps.

IT is famously not a short story.

Stephen King isn't very good at satisfying endings. I can only assume this is true of Boris in at least one context.
Is there a bruised tech' entrepreneur we could consult?
