I think The Daily Telegraph must have a new editor. It has been like looking at Hello magazine this week.
Monday the front page was taken up with a picture of the queen. She was in hospital with the trots. Now I could have understood the photograph had she been flat on her back dressed in incontinence pants on the royal litter. She looked fine to me, smiling in that condescending way of hers. Maybe she wasn’t smiling but clenching her buttocks. Difficult to tell with royals and politicians which end you are observing or listening to. I’m not a doctor so maybe she was ill.
Tuesday, there she was again, different coat but looking much the same. She was out of hospital. I suspect she was just slinging a sicky or distracting the media from old Air Miles Andy who may have been caught with his fingers in the till again.
Wednesday, Katie Kambridge. It was her turn to monopolise the front page. She was wearing a coat and stealing teddy bears from children in Grimsby. This is not as bad as it sounds. If the issue of Grimsby were holding teddy bears they were probably stolen from the Pound Shop. The police should investigate and arrest her for receiving. That would be news.
Today, it was some lass who was suing Lord Sugar over something to do with a reality TV show… Big Apprentice X Factor Brother……. I think the show was.
I have never agreed with the Telegraph’s political bent but it has always been a reputable rag with a great crossword and difficult Sudokus. Every now and again it is unbiased but only when I agree with the commentator. I used to enjoy the separate sports section as it covered all sport. Nowadays it is mostly football and racing and half of the coverage is gossip. Gossip is not news and should only have a place in a serious paper if it involves scantily clad young ladies frolicking with cabinet ministers.
Dithery has been pretty quiet since they stopped him Badger hunting. He contents himself with printing money and doing nothing. I did notice that he has switched his attention to Deer stalking today and his wife was baking cakes….she only made page two. Pity even with bright pink hair she is easy on the eye. What did she see in Dithery? I can only think it was his face…..poor bloke he looks like a polished baby’s bum. Ladies have a thing about babies bums and are fascinated by what they produce. That must be how he pulled her. Bet she regrets it now.
If they want a celebrity gossip section then they ought to put it out as a supplement…… On nice soft absorbent paper please. I could hang it and use it for something useful. Better still supply the suggested supplement in roll form. It may not be that efficient ………probably put more on than it takes off……worth a try though in these straightened times.
I have hung about all day waiting for the drizzle and rain to stop….it just has but it is now dark and misty.
The Post Office. Brian’s lair he is a grand bloke but a bit slow. I posted my broken camera from here and sorting out the postage and insurance took all morning……we did have a coffee break two thirds of the way through and retired to the pub over the road to recuperate. So an experience of personal service difficult to find these days.
I’ve been here a month now…………………………………………………………….
A week before I arrived this Great Tit was grabbed by a Kestrel. It still visits the feeders several times a day. She is looking much better…………….Now that is good news.
As always all pictures will enlarge with a click.
That’s all for today. I’m an awful gossip I am.
