Of Grimsby and blackmail

A big news story like that of the royal blackmail causes problems for local newspapers.  How best to report it?  Well, nothing I’ve seen so far tops the effort of the Grimsby Telegraph under the headline “PLAYBOY ACCUSED IN ROYAL BLACKMAIL PLOT HAS LINKS WITH GRIMSBY” which leads to a story giving full details of his connection with the Grimsby area.

What’s next?  The Annandale Observer leading with “SOCIALITE BLACKMAIL SUSPECT HAS LINKS WITH ANNAN: ONCE SAW KOFI ANNAN ON TELEVISION ADDRESSING BIG MEETING AT UN”?

ETA Link corrected for those bemused by the post earlier…

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.

  1. Did you post the wrong link there, or has it just been changed? or perhaps I don’t understand the post?
