Karl Marx was a much misunderstood man whose teachings have probably been responsible for more deaths than anyone in history, but that remark of his occurred to me when I spotted the front page of The Daily Star half an hour ago
For overseas readers I should explain that whereas readers of Murdoch's Sun move their lips when reading those who favour the Daily Star lick their lips when looking at the pictures. Like the Daily Express it is run by a successful pornographer. (And in case you're wondering, yes indeed: Desmond who owns the Express was entertained in Downing Street by The Bliar or Hoots McBroon - I can't recall which. Take my word for it, no Press Baron can be any lower than the self-righteous pricks at the top in politics.)
Anyhow, it came to pass that the big news in the Star today is that the professional trollop Jordan, aka Katie Price, claims her phone has been hacked into in order to find out details of her sex life.
This is the funniest thing since grandma caught her tits in the mangle and brought to mind Marx's observation. Ever since she had her tits (Katie's, not grandma's) stuffed with kapok or whatever they use to make them bigger Jordan has made a point of telling the whole world who is or is not fucking her and for that matter who else they might have been fucking.
What a splendid piece of work she is, to be sure!
By the way, I was chatting to a man from the BBC last night and we were wondering whether the man who got bashed by Wendy Murdoch was there by design to make us feel sorry for the old scamp.
