Scrapbook Exclusive Stays Exclusive


The managed decline of part-time Labour attack blog Political Scrapbook continues apace. This morning’s top Scrapbook scoop is headlined: “Liam Fox is Trying to Become UK’s Foreign Secretary, Again!”. A rehash of a story in the Sunday papers which they haven’t even managed to copy correctly – Dr Fox was never Foreign Secretary. It wasn’t just a typo, the error is repeated twice in the copy: “Fox isn’t about to give up on becoming UK Foreign Secretary again”, and “It’s only taken five years for Fox to plot his way back into the Foreign Office”. No one has even pointed out the triple error in Scrapbook’s comments, because no one reads it any more…

UPDATE: Over an hour since the Scrapbook post and tweet went up, it still hasn’t been corrected…

Quote of the Day

Conrad Black on Max Hastings and Boris…

“As the former employer of both of them, and although their positions were of unequal importance and challenges, on balance I must declare Boris to be more reliable and trustworthy than Max.”
