Well, maybe not, but we did make their weekend quiz last week:

1 Who was crowned King of Scots at Scone on 1 January 1651?
2 In the military website, ARRSE stands for what?
3 Millvina Dean (d 2009) was the last survivor of what incident?
4 Which county flies Saint Petroc's flag?
5 What are the only consecutive prime numbers?
6 What's happened to Sandy Island in the South Pacific?
7 Which novel is named after a hill at Ecchinswell in Hampshire?
8 Dizygotic and monozygotic are types of what?

On balance, I'll take it. Ok I find their politics not to my personal taste but you have to admire the quality of some of their journalism (hello Daily Telegraph, are you listening) and their commitment to digital.

Bit left wing for my liking, but their sports section is pretty decent and I think they have one of the better literature sections

I find overall that the UK broadsheets are pretty crap, particularly on foreign affairs. If I want to read up on countries like Afghanistan, I'd go to us papers like the huffington post, far better journalism than our so-called quality papers.

Wait... the Guardian actively reads this website?

I suggest we don't make up stories, that are completely false, so that they don't read them and then don't later publish them as stories... therefore not looking like twats for not falling for a practical joke. Not.


Oh btw, did you hear about Sir Mike Jackson recently? Apparently he was having wild sex parties in the 90's with lots of Swedish totty and members of the establishment? Lots of big names used to turn up... apparently John Major had a penchant for gimp suits and whips. Even Maggie used to turn up - a right goer apparently... even at her age!

The RSM's daughter's best mate's cousin told me so. Terrible business.



Or am I about to be arrested by the Twitter Police?
