Today December 16 2011, arguably one of the most literate and articulate modern intellectuals of our era died after a year long bout withesophageal cancer,aged 62.

The loss is compounded by the fact that neither he nor we were quite ready to say goodbye, but he remained lucid and productive to the end. He joins a list which includes Shakespeare, Dickens and Wilde who also did not achieve the honour. Let's petition her majesty to take the rare step ofennoblingthis most noble of men.

    He was a man worth 100 ordinary men and 12 current knights.
