Gordon in the morning: George Michael is like a Moors murderer or... something

To be fair to Gordon, it looks like the incoherent babbling about George Michael on his pages this morning is only there by automation. The byline on the piece belongs to:

JOHN KAY, Chief Reporter, and NEIL SYSON
The story is that George Michael has been moved out of Pentonville to a lower security prison. Or, as Kay and Syson would have it:
George moved to Myra's soft jail

SHAMED George Michael was secretly switched to a soft jail yesterday where Moors killer Myra Hindley was locked up.
Michael is now in Highpoint, which would seem to be fair as it's not like he's killed anyone. There doesn't seem to be any real need to mention Hindley other than it being a chance for The Sun to rage again about the Moors Murders.

In fact, there's no need to mention Hindley at all, as she never was an inmate at Highpoint - true, she spent the last three years of her life in a neighbouring jail which was called Highpoint at the time, but that is the current Edmunds Hill Prison. The one she was in was the same one Boy George spent time in; Michael's jail was the one Tony Martin passed most of his sentence.
