Funny names at NER

Remember Dr Kevin de Cock, World Health Organisation expert on the effect of male circumcision on the rate of HIV infection in heterosexual men?

Perhaps you had momentarily forgotten him, but if I have anything to do with it, nobody will be allowed to forget this man and his very funny name.

Nor should we forget that the Marketing Director of Damart, a company that makes thermal underwear, is the aptly named John Bottomley.

Make a space in your memory for Professor John Studd, consultant gynaecologist at Chelsea and Westminster hospital in London.

More recently we have paid tribute to the late Alan Ball, who played ball, and scoffed at Ed Balls, who talks it.

Today, a writer sniggers at a theatre director, whose name is Tim Supple. The name of the writer-sniggerer is Ferdinand Mount. Perhaps he would have done better to hold his tongue.
