Revenge killings

Diana (visibly upset) and the unfortunately named Dr Bone yesterdayAustralia has been hit by a wave of vigilante revenge killings on stingrays following the death of Steve Irwin.

I had no idea the Daily Express was even sold down under, but clearly it is because these people are Express readers or I’m Mickey Mouse. The Express, of course, plays it all Gordon Brown today and brushes off any suggestions of involvement. Instead it leads where Newsnight will surely follow, with Diana’s tears as she helped bury friend’s baby at palace* and Back at work, the sex change gynaecologist.

  1. Great link, Wavey. You know, there’s something similar about all those front pages, if only I could put my finger on it…

    Still, I don’t know if you read my item above but they did also report “Back at work, the sex-change gynaecologist”, so it’s not like they’re completely obsessed.

  2. i love the fact that they use Burrell’s story and make money out of Diana stories, yet they also spend half the time criticising him for making money out of his Diana stories (“how dare people abuse the Memory of Diana for their own profit” etc…) 😉
