...Pants on Fire

A monthly subscription to Television X and an Ofcom fine for breaching rules on the protection of children to the first person who can find any reference in the Daily Express's coverage of the Desmond v. Bower verdict to the fact that he, er, lost?

"Have Your Say" is unavailable for this story. Really? But why?

Top banana! The word 'shit' could have been invented for Dirty Des.

OK, unrelated comment, but emails to Eye addresses tend not to work. There's a Goths in Hot Weather cartoon on p17 of the current issue, and I think it belongs here:

Can I scan and send it to them? I don't want to piss off the cartoonist or the Eye more generally.

Ooh, they do you know James - as long as you get the right ones. That would be a matter for the editorial secretaries on strobes@private-eye.co.uk who would be able to put you in contact with the cartoonist.

Although I suspect most people would probably just do it and not tell anyone... you are obviously nicer and more honest than them.

Hi Adam,
I emailed over but nada, so fuck it, if I don't hear by Friday I'm going to do the bad thing. I'll make sure they link back though.

Cheers
James
