Simon Barnes….in the Mail?

Simon Barnes, in the Daily Mail?

Writing about postal unions?

This isn\’t the same Simon Barnes who has been doing sport and nature stuff for the Times for a decade or more is it?

  1. No idea, but it’s not that unusual a name, is it? I must admit for some years (I can’t think why really) I thought Simon Barnes was Julian Barnes, the novelist.

  2. It’s clearly not the same person because this Simon Barnes or Simon “not the Times columnist” Barnes refers to having worked undercover as a postman back in 2004 which I’m sure the other one would have mentioned at some point.

    Also Simon ‘nttc’ Barnes isn’t as pretentious as as his namesake.
