Indy Falls For Onion Spoof

Cringe-inducing stuff from the Indy today. Quite how they still don’t know the Onion is a satirical website is beyond Guido, yet they have managed to run a ‘quote’ from a supposed CNN boss on Miley Cyrus’ dancing, clearly the only story of the day:

Finally addressed some hours later:

Doh!

    Too bad the Indy doesn’t do research – the Miley story has some meat in it.

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.
