My regular reader will realise that I am at the cutting edge of breaking news stories through my diligent reading on the RSS feeds of the BBC and newspapers. I brought you news of Scotland’s slogan, only half a day after everyone else. I broke the news that Wendy Alexander was being investigated over the £950 donation, a full week after the Sunday Herald. I have also been tipped off that the relief of Mafeking is just around the corner. But even I seem to be ahead of the Times.
Last week my regular reader will recall my exclusive poll to determine what Scotland’s slogan should be. Yesterday – in a blatant rip off by a grossly inferior product – the exercise was repeated by The TImes on-line “Comment Central”.
I have instructed my solicitor (ie me) appropriately, and rest assured I will leave no cliche unturned in taking up my trusty sword of justice and shield of fair play in a bid for justice and due acknowledgement.
