I took a break from the hoovering to have a bit of lunch today and sit down to watch the news and I was watching Sky News and they were interviewing the political editor of the News Of The World about Gordon's most recent travails. This was a bit of a shock; I've been in the business almost a quarter of a century now and this was the first time I heard the NoW had a political editor. For those of you not familiar with the NoW, it's sort of akin to discovering that the National Enquirer has an economics editor.

I share your sense of shock. But I suppose NoW readers are allowed to vote, so...

He must be the un-busiest bloke ever.

Reminds me of an old joke about the voting habits of certain newspaper readers. Guardian readers don't care who runs the country, so long as they're left of centre. Telegraph readers don't care who runs the country, so long as they're right of centre. And Sun readers don't care who runs the country, so long as they have big tits.
I agree: political editor of the NoW must be a fairly cushy number. Second only to the Sunday Sport's science editor.

I can't imagine the Sunday Sport having a science editor. I mean, allegedly mainstream newspapers do such a poor job already, the SS's qualifications for their writer would be "Must have GCSE science and be able to read and write."

Hang on, when did the ability to write become a requirement on the Sport?
