Alex 280x300 Irony: Not on Twitterniall 229x300 Irony: Not on TwitterOnce again, I have been caught out by the lack of a backward-sloping ironic typeface on my computer. I gathered, yesterday, that an association football manager had resigned, so I said on Twitter:

I don’t think Ferguson should have given in to media hysteria like this. He apologised for his tasteless comments about Keynes being gay.

The Evening Standard diarist thought that this was “unlikely” support for Niall Ferguson.

Just to clear up the confusion, I should say that Sir Niall (right) was quite right to seek a transfer to Chelsea.
