The Skimmer

All the news that’s not fit to print

As the weekly news cycle comes to an end and darkness descends on a gloomy Friday, there are two great news stories doing the rounds, neither of which the great British media can report. One involves a famous broadcaster and his love child by another journalist and is covered by an injunction. The other is covered by a D-Notice. Good to live in a free country, isn't it?

PS The Skimmer has also heard of another famous broadcaster (who doesn't have a love child, as far as we know) who was so hung over from celebrations the night before that he failed to make a scheduled morning interview with the Prime Minister. No doubt that's covered by an injunction AND a D notice!
