Tangerinegate

Accusations are all you need to get into the mainstream news media apparently.

Can you believe what our Prime Minister did with a tangerine?

But can you believe that my phone call ended up in the Financial Times? And on the BBC show The Bubble (14 mins 15 secs in to be precise). And The Telegraph and The Sun. And animated by a Hong Kong news channel…

And it’s on wikipedia. So is Robert Popper a media hoax genius or is he hoaxing us that he hoaxed the media — is he actually simply a fan trying to renew Gordon Brown’s image?

Thanks to Nick for the tip.
