Gordon in the morning: Predictive text

You'd have thought that News International might want to make it not sound quite so much like they're eavesdropping on phone calls, what with their track record and all.

Sean Hamilton, writing for Gordon, nevertheless seems surprisingly intimate with the calls of the Coles:

BETRAYED Cheryl Cole has ended her marriage by TEXT - telling love-rat husband Ashley: "Move out. It's over."

She did a pay a solicitor £115 an hour to write that text for her, though. Probably.

Meanwhile, Ashley has been on the phone to "pretty Ann", who is somehow involved in the sorry tale:
He sobbed down the phone, telling her: "I can't lose my wife over this. If I lose my wife, I don't want to live."

"... I don't want to live in a bedsit in Tulse Hill, which I understand is what happens to newly-divorced men."

It must be handy for the Coles having all their communications stored and searched and shared around like this - ordinary people have to sign up with Google to get that sort of service.

It all means The Sun can go back into the 'told you so' mode it was enjoying so much the last time this happened:
We first exposed Cole in January 2008, after he bedded hairdresser Aimee Walton, 22.

Two weeks ago we told how he sent raunchy snaps of himself to glamour girl Sonia Wild, 28.

Of course, we were happy to run stories saying it was all happiness again between these times, but let's forget that bit, shall we?
