Good lord, the Telegraph has let itself go, hasn't it? Being owned by the sort of nasty pieces of work who react to losing an election by closing all their businesses like stropping teenagers, it must be awfully embarrassing for the paper trying to talk about grown-up matters, but why on earth must it destroy its own reputation by reporting clear-tattle-as-fact? Today, it reckons that Robbie Williams is going to be a regular judge on the X Factor. The paper tries to wrap the unlikely tale with an "it has been reported" - but, curiously, doesn't say where. Beyond, obviously, in the pages of the Telegraph.
