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.

    Johann Hari says:

    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

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
