He's called Nick Cohen and he's very angry about parking regulations

So I declare him to be on topic for this blog, even though in my heart of hearts I know that he's probably not the same guy.

If we didn't know he lived in Islington, not Croyden, there would be nothing in that article to suggest it wasn't our Nick. He's perhaps not quite as angry, and didn't mention Kate Winslet, but otherwise its spot on.

Oh God, is Nick a Winslett fan? Are we going to get a lecture on that film (having seen the trailer at least twice now) where her boob is accidentally grazed by Jack Black? (Oh, that I were a mole upon that hand, that I might touch that boob!) Why doesn't London go to intelligent cinema any more?

Perhaps Nick has a second home, or office, in Croydon. I seem to remember Martin Amis used to live in Brixton (as he mentioned a fair few times in his books), but had a place up West where he wrote. Or vice versa. Something like that.

You haven't done a nick prediction for a while - can I suggest (having just seen this at a website Nick regularly copies) that nick's next Standard, orpossibly Observer piece, will be an attack on Robin Hood on the BBC and Keith Allen's failure to stand up to islamofascism

You mean Nick's only just now been tipped off to the anti-New Labour/Iraq war references in Robin Hood? That means he's now going to tell everyone how he would write a Decent version of the tale because he's suddenly the next Russell T Davies. Spare me the madness, please.
