Those of us of a cynical disposition

Nothing more than these few lines I'm afraid, but worthy of its own little post I thought.

Those of us, of a cynical disposition, would suspect that the reason the whole story doesn't ring true is simply because it isn't - it's a concoction, created after the event, designed to protect the reputations of the stupid, selfish and irresponsible.

The infamous "sighting" is just the cherry on top of that particularly inedible cake - unfortunately, by the time that Leicestershire's finest finally got around to revisiting those statements, all concerned had been given plenty of time to fix the narrative in place.

Not that it would have bothered the LP - their interviews were so weak, they may as well have been carried out on the GMTV sofa, by the assorted media Maccanistas, for all the good they did.
