"And then I eat the stick"

The recent article on Clive in The New Statesman (http://www.newstatesman.com/culture/2014/04/clive-james-poetry-family-and-illnes s-i-m-bit-terrified-really-mark-end) states that "he plans to abandon journalism over the coming months in order to start work on a new book – or two." If so, this means the TV reviews will cease later this year. I have a mixed reaction--I'll miss my weekly dose of Clive, but I can't pretend that his TV criticism for Telegraph matched that of the Observer. And I am all for a new book (or books), whether it's a valedictory sequel to Cultural Amnesia or a final set of memoirs.

The Pete Atkin and Clive James Appreciation Society on Facebook have posted a scan from a recent issue of Private Eye, which claims that the Telegraph's Editor-in-Chief James "Psycho" Seiken has sacked Clive, who no longer provides "value for money."  
 
Though Private Eye has knocked Clive in the past, this article is thoroughly in his corner and calls him "the most esteemed TV reviewer of the age." Seiken on the other hand is reviled as "a heartless shit" with "no understanding of British journalism."
 
If all this is true, which circle of hell does Seiken belong in?

The Telegraph Quote:
After this Saturday, Clive James will no longer be writing a weekly television column in the Telegraph. He would like to focus more of his time and energy on completing two books. However, it is our intention that Clive will contribute major essays and other extended pieces for the newspaper in the future, specifically on the publication of his forthcoming books.
