Echo Breach, far away in time…

Some may have been amused by the Echo Newspaper being taken apart by Media Watch last week. The timing therefore could not be worse for their big anniversary dinner last night, when these mugs were handed out with independent spelt incorrectly. Oh the humanity. Oh the independance! If Jonathon Holmes sees this, I hope he doesn’t start singing Echo Beach. For some reason he was singing in last week’s show.

    Might be wrong, but isn’t there a case for saying 1985-2010 is actually 26 years?

    Without local government press releases to fall back upon, the Echo staff obviously struggled with the text for the mug.

    off piste…

    article from The Grauniad in which famous musicians are asked to recount their favourite moment on stage. For some reason they asked Luke “Lord Gaga” Steele.

    He uses it as an opportunity to bemoan the lack of ooshta in his home town

    New York is much better, it appears. who knew? well, Shallow Spice could have told him
