The wit, wine and wisdom of Simon Hoggart, 1946 - 2014

January 07, 2014

Simon Hoggart, one of the Spectator's best-loved columnists, died yesterday after fighting pancreatic cancer for over three years. He began writing for the magazine in the mid-nineties, and started the column for which he was most well known in The Spectator - the Wine Club - in 2001.
