Mail Magpie Pierce Does It Again

 

Like Guido, regular readers will no longer be surprised to see stories from this blog appear in Andrew Pierce’s Mail column. On Friday Guido ran two stories on Michael Gove’s school playing fields saga, the first revealing just how many fields were flogged under Labour and the second unearthing the hypocrisy of Andy Burnham. Imagine the shock in the Guy Newsroom when Pierce then penned a piece yesterday revealing just exactly how many school playing fields had been sold off under the last government accompanied by the very same quote from the Shadow Health Secretary:

Coincidence, of course…

    It was hardly an exclusive, Guido. You yourself simply quoted a government press release. That’s not that say that this Andrew Pierce isn’t a complete prick.

    BBC figures out what to feature by reading the Guardian. I figure out what to write about by reading you. Same difference.

    Guido, leave Pierce alone he is doing his job, just because a story appears on your blog does not give you exclusivity, I suspect the story was picked up elsewhere as well.

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
