A Balls-Up About Betjeman

Cadogan suggest the impossible in claiming that Sir John Betjeman was present at the arrest of Oscar Wilde at The Cadogan Hotel

The Earl of Cadogan – best known for once stating he “preferred horses to people” and for ending the lease of the Oriel restaurant on Sloane Square because he didn’t like a meal he had there – should be spluttering into his Corn Flakes.

 

On a website controlled by his property company, Cadogan, currently is an article about The Belmond Cadogan Hotel on Sloane Street – which reopens today after a spectacular £39 million refurbishment. In it reference is made to how Oscar Wilde was “notoriously arrested” there in 1895 and a claim is made that the poet Sir John Betjeman “happened to be among those present.”

Given Sir John was born in 1906, this is plainly utter baloney (unless of course the Poet Laureate was visiting in a past life).
