I disclosed last month how David Gaiman, the publicity director for L Ron Hubbard's controversial Church of Scientology, had bequeathed his old boss's collected works to the Oxford Union.

Gaiman's dying wish that this would lead to a spate of conversions amid the dreaming spires now looks deluded. I hear that the bequest – or at least some of the 10 boxes of the lovingly-collected books, CDs and papers – was unceremoniously burnt after a farewell dinner for James Langman, the former president of the Union, over the weekend. Langman tells me he was himself unaware of the book-burning.

One trusts Tom Cruise and John Travolta – the church's best-known disciples – will never get to hear of this outrage.
