I recently gave up my nom-de-blog, Wilson, for my real name, Neil.
Then I added some links to my sidebar and republished my blog. It's like Stalin's graphic artist airbrushers had been on the case. There is no longer any mention of my nom-de-blog Wilson. Gone. As if he was never there.
"And like that, he was gone".
Intelligent readers may have noticed inconsistencies in the accounts of Wilson. Playing test cricket until the 1950s, yet being reported dead in WWII. Inconsistency is what the chap was all about.
