Mr. O'Hagan worked at the copy desk and as a result the happy recipient of the material Miles Kington sent in, that often included whimsical notes. He comments, "What did Miles write about? Everything and nothing. Especially nothing. Writing about nothing – or almost nothing – was I think where his real genius lay. He wrote about words, about motorway service stations, about being out and about on his bicycle. He was a spoof agony uncle. He noticed things no one else noticed."
