Sadly for those waving chequebooks, Sonia Rossington had already decided who was going to get her story. Plus she might as well have some little recompense for having the phone ringing at all hours of the day and night, plus all the hacks camped outside her house for days on end, especially when they knew their paper had not got the story, but they still had to get a quote.
Daily Mail - Spoiler: yes, the MoS found itself bidding against its daily sister paper. And, such is the needle between MoS editor Geordie Greig and the legendarily foul mouthed Paul Dacre that the latter, I am told, ordered a spoiler in retaliation on discovering he had lost out. Hence the Saturday headline “SEX SHAME MP SAVAGED BY EX-WIFE”. The Dacre doggies didn’t know what Sonia was going to say, but they knew it was going to be moderately explosive. Most of that story is recycling other copy.
Sun On Sunday - King Size Onion: after spending three days ritually trashing Danczuk in its pages, the Sun has today allowed him to present his rambling excuse note, telling that, more or less, The Bottle Did It, Honestly.
There'd be mild humour in watching neocon rags trying to push each other deeper into cultural poison - if it wasn't so damaging to everything else that matters.
The only good thing to come out of it is every time they race to the bottom it shows them all up for what they are: tenth rate hacks and cowards without any sense of decency or responsibility.
The lower they stoop the more likely they are to stare up each other's arse. The sooner Murdoch and Dacre makes them redundant the sooner they'll realise not just how used they've been, but how cowardly they are, to say nothing of the damage they do to national culture. The lot of them are beneath contempt.
Fuck their chequebooks.
Why are people legally allowed to run to a newspaper with a story that contains criminal behaviour?
Let the Daily Mail have their glory but I'm telling you now, this will be the end of it.
The law needs to draw a line under it all.
Remember, when you point the finger you must look to see how many are pointing back at you.
That includes those in journalism and other places too.
That's it then. Paddy Power has stopped taking bets. Strictly Come Danczuk is now a certainty.
"The only good thing to come out of it is every time they race to the bottom it shows them all up for what they are: tenth rate hacks and cowards without any sense of decency or responsibility".
That was the intent. Was it not?
Stand back though.
There is worse to come!!!
The Daily Fail conglomorates might do well out of this but they may or may not be aware of something connecting them to something so huge and stinky it might just close their offices once and for all.
That is all!
Does anybody have a geographic breakdown of the S*n and Daily M**l circulations?
It could tell us a lot about which areas of this country contains the most knob heads.
A lady got banned from a local shop recently. She grabbed a newspaper and paid for it and went to leave the shop and the shop keeper yelled at her because she grabbed two newspapers by accident.
The trouble is, newspapers are getting thinner.
Which, is good news for some but not the poor customer.
Anon 17.51 - I'd say as far as these "newspapers" go the thinner the better, hopefully it won't be too long before they disappear entirely ;-)
