And on grinds the public tragedy of Amy and Mitch, with enabler Gordon giving space to Mitch's belief's that Amy's trip to A&E was as a result of someone slipping an E into her drink:
You'll note that Gordon has put pal in quotation marks, so as not to confuse his readers - this isn't the sort of pal who's really a pal, the type of pal who would sell a story to the tabloids, for example.
Meanwhile, almost as if he's noticed that the general level of interest in his doings has slumped since he split with Kate Moss, Pete Doherty is reduced to reminding people that he used to go out with the famous Kate Moss, you know:
Speaking about the break-up for the first time, he added: “When you split up with someone you’re seriously in love with, it takes a lot of time before you even realise you’re upset. You know? It just hits you.”
Yes, it's been a year now since Kate Moss moved on to somewhere where the drug taking would be less obvious - sorry, I mean where the drug taking would be less - and Pete hasn't had a serious page in the gossip columns ("a serious relationship") since.
