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.

    To be fair everyone wrote an article on playing fields last or this week so this isn’t surprising. It was just in the ether.

    Plagiarism or Imitation Guido. Quite possibly one of the sincerest forms of flattery.

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

    So sue me, Staynzie.

    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.

    Always willing to defend the defenceless

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
