Yes, you did read that headline correctly, today as the broadsheets and red tops alike whip themselves into a frenzy like so many Roman revellers at Saturnalia over the resignation of ginger minge Rebekah Brooks and the latest revelations in the News International phone hacking, cop bunging, bin raiding and baby bugging (we might have made that one up)crimes of people working for the News of the World and The Currant Bun, it is left to the Daily Mail to say:
“Hey folks, while television news and the papers are obsessing over this story that we all knew about for years, aren’t we forgetting the Euro single currency is falling apart, inflation is up, employment is down and upshitcreekness abounds.
Well done to The Daily Mail for sounding a note of sanity.
It is always possible of course that the Mail did not have any new dirt on the News International scandal. But it would be curmudgeonly of us to suggest such a thin so we will not mention it.
