Lost in translation

Seemingly the Irish Independent has misinterpreted a story about
a Polish waitress in Co’ Donegal
.

Deliberate or not?

Seemingly (II), one of the “journalists” involved in this has her own
Wordpress account
and, somewhat ironically, she lambasts a journalist
for poor reporting
.

Seemingly (III), you really CAN make it up.

UPDATE: I posted a reply to Norma Costello’s WordPress blog:

Do you think she passed the comment for publication?
Click on the third link in this post….

UPDATE II: Newstalk, whose website repeated the lies about “Magda”,
is owned by Communicorp, a Denis O’Brien company. O’Brien is also the largest shareholder
in….you guessed it…the Irish Independent.

Now how about this; O’Brien, whose media outlets peddled lies about an
apparent welfare scrounger, is a tax exile living in Malta!

Here’s a couple of links on said Mr. O’Brien:

A message to BT

The more you call me to sell your services, the more I will avoid
your company.

Is that simple enough for you?
Is it simpler now than when I told you the exact same thing
over the phone and your employee took offence despite my lack
of swearing or anger?

Do you understand me now?
Do you understand that the more you call me, the more you drive me
into the ‘arms’ of TalkTalk etc?

You are acting like some sort of telecommunications-based stalker.

Waitrose Belgian Chocolate Hot Cross Buns

Two or three years ago, said supermarket sold said product –
and then stopped.

WHY?!

I’ve not eaten any HCB since!

Chocolate Ruby….again

After I very briefly extolled the virtues of said beverage,
I now cannot find the bloody thing.

Seemingly there are fans of the stuff out there.

P.S. I’m not suggesting that I have influence – I’m merely saying
that it might have quite a following!
