A big thank-you to the Daily Mail sub-editors for converting a Daily Telegraph story, which resolutely avoided asking a Question to Which the Answer is No, into Number 757 in the world-famous series.
The Mail was kind enough to supply additional evidence in the form of photographs (right) that show conclusively that Hitler and M Loret had [...]
Number 756 in the long-running series of Questions to Which the Answer is No. Possibly because Paul Dacre is up before the Leveson inquiry today, the staff have been more careful to switch the QTWTAIN-generator off at night recently.
Although we do approve of the Mail’s pedantically correct hyphenation and capitalisation of Spider-Man.
Thanks to George Margereson.
Peter Hain, asked number 383 in the famous series, gives an interesting answer in an interview with Progress.
Tony could still have probably in the 2010 election got us to be the biggest party. Now that’s quite a big statement to make because he was an unpopular prime minister when he left, mainly because of Iraq, but [...]
Number 753 in the most famous blog theme in the solar system, of Questions to Which the Answer is No, is asked by Daily Mail Online today.
Thanks to Seth Jacobson, who saw it first.
Number 752 was asked by Larry Elliott in the Guardian:
David Cameron, the new Edward Heath?
Meanwhile my colleague Matt Chorley found a 19-year-old [...]
I have not reported on luvviedom’s Blair Hate Fest much recently, as the loopiness is abating. But Phyllida Lloyd, the director of The Iron Lady, provides a prize exhibit in the latest Attitude magazine. She says that Margaret Thatcher is “much more hated than Tony Blair, who caused the deaths of millions. Deaths!”
Previously in this [...]
The Daily Mail is trying too hard to attract my attention. No fewer than three Questions to Which the Answer is No this morning. The above is number 748 in my series.
Not really sure who Peppa Pig is, but I thought the NuLiebore PC police state gulag (contd p94) had deleted the word “naughty” from [...]
My colleagues at Northcliffe House have left the Question to Which the Answer is No generator on over the bank holiday weekend. Start the year as you mean to go on, I say. Number 747* in the series.
This one has been done so well that the fine detail looks almost hand-made. The “390 miles from [...]
Here are my favourites in the series of Questions to Which the Answer is No from the past 12 months.
The Daily Mail is doing it only to disrupt my displacement activity. I had just finished my round-up of the year’s Questions to Which the Answer is No for the purpose of announcing the 2011 awards, when they give me this – number 746 in the interminable series.
Genius. The BBC asks number 745 in my series of Questions to Which the Answer is No, on the front-page link to this feature, which has another headline of sublime comedy:
2011: The year when a lot happened.
Thanks to James, also known as Equus on the Buses.
Meanwhile, shame on the Daily Mail for retreating from asking, [...]
