The Grauniad's web site is flagging the interview with a line about CJ "throwing his hat into the ring" for the Oxford Professor of poetry job- not quite what he says in the interview methinks.

It may not have been what he said, but it does appear that the possibility of his being offered it is
is being taken seriously (http://kcryan.wordpress.com/2009/05/31/clive-james-for-oxford-professor-of-poetry/) by The Observer's literary editor.
