  2. They're journos, checking facts is not as important as selling newspapers.
     
  3. Reading the Wail is like choosing to spend the evening with the Socialist Workers Party - unnecessary and certain to induce paroxysms of rage. Go to the pub instead.

  4. Special Friday price for fixing that.
     
  5. Cheers, it needed that. I owe you a pint. (mussels, winkles or whelks?)

    I think there is a strong possibility that Colin Dunn Esq has met the Baron of Castleshortt in one of his many guises. It's the only explanation I can think of for the farmyard sized heap of bullshit in the article.

  7. You're discounting the possibility that he couldn't be arsed to leave his desk or pick the phone up, and just made it all up.
     
  8. Just read the article, what a load of old bollocks. If that is the way he writes in his 'thrillers' I reckon I will give them a miss.
     
  9. The 'story' is not written by a journalist, it's written by the same bloke named in the headline - it's a standard piece of pap about himself to plug bollocks books that he's somehow managed to slip into a 'news' part of the paper.

    McNab and Ryan would be proud of him, the ****.

    By George, Holmes, could that be possible?
     
  11. 'There were, and still are, a lot of SAS fantasists about'

    Is that so, Colin?
     
  12. He's not very complimentary about REME, is he? :)
     
  13. Any publicity is good publicity.

    I read one of his books "Man Bites talking Dog" which did keep me amused on a long haul flight. All about his life as a journo in the Good Old Days, when fabricating complete bollocks for a looming deadline whilst completely shit faced and in bed with a gopping Z list celeb. was par for the course. Oh hang on.....
     
  14. Well screw you lot, I'm writing to Colin to apply for the vacant position of 'hired bullshitter'.

    I haven't got a thousand yard stare, but I'm creative and entirely without a moral compass.
