Flicking through the AJ (24.4.03), I could have been forgiven for thinking I'd picked up Private Eye by mistake. Shurely, instead of 'Briefing Notes' you mean 'Pseuds Corner'?
I'm sure Philip Bintliff - who he? - must be one of the little characters lurking in Hellman's excellent and so-accurate cartoons. Regrettably, as I don't have a clue who he is, I don't know for sure. Perhaps we should be told (but then again, no).
