Unintentional comedian Paul Mason tweeted what Frank Carson would doubtless have called "a cracker" this morning. His tweet began reasonably enough:
The Telegraph’s “spy” smear @johnmcdonnellMP is literally fake news.
but then his tinfoil hat went straight back on again:
The whole operation seems co-ordinated from Tory HQ...
Lovely use of the word 'seems' there, Paul!
Now, Brother Paul isn't the only one who doesn't reckon much to the Sunday Telegraph's lead story today:
Andrew Marr gave it short shrift this morning:
They've also got the story about Jeremy Corbyn and the Czech agent. I should say that this has been comprehensively and absolutely denied as "lies and rubbish" by all of the politicians concerned and it does seem, reading through it, fairly thin."
and Martine Croxall & her fellow paper reviewers judged it to be a "non story" on the BBC News Channel last night.
So that's that then for the poor old Sunday Telegraph it seems!
