It's remarkable how instantaneous and uncontested his triumph has been. The BBC has just handed him £185,000 of licence payers money even though it very carefully didn't name him in its sloppy Newsnight Report. ITV will be falling over itself next- even though Philip Schofield didn't name him either. After they've dealt with the TV people his lawyers will be going after the Twitterati. One witch hunt is being answered by another.
John Ward suggests on his blog that Lord M (who really doesn't need the money) might consider donating his enormous winnings to Children in Need. Now wouldn't that be a touching gesture!
