Gordon in the morning: Dachshund news

Who knew that Liam Gallagher loved little dogs so much? Turns out he does:

He ranted: "Extinction of sausage dogs? I will prevent that! When I'm back in England I am gonna buy 900 of them. I am gonna prevent them from downfall."
He's not, but it is a lovely image of Liam trying to take 900 dogs for a walk.

It does appear that dachshunds are suffering as Germans turn to other breeds. The 2007 report from Der Spiegel also offers this little nugget:
And the Japanese national football team brought one to Germany for the 2006 World Cup as a mascot. They called him Erwin Rommel, after the German World War II field marshal, who was also known as the "Desert Fox."
The Japanese world cup team had a mascot named after a Nazi? Was that entirely wise?

Back in Primrose Hill, Liam stops being interesting and starts to bang on about how he used to be in Oasis, you know:
"Thinking about touring with Oasis again in ten years makes me vomit. What should a reunion be good for? Why break up with a band, just to come back together and play old songs?"
Gordon has a suggestion:
I reckon about £10million is a decent reason.
Did Mr Smart just backtalk Liam? I think he did.
