Tim Blair on Peter Roebuck


I had no idea Peter Roebuck was such a – shall we say – complex individual. Tim Blair delves as well as anyone probably can into the life of the late cricket commentator Peter Roebuck and ponders possible motivating factors for his untimely suicide.

Yet in the many thousands of words written about Roebuck since his death, a broader possible cause emerges. It could be that the 55-year-old, whose own friends admit they didn’t know well, simply couldn’t bear to have his life exposed.
