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

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
