Feeling bored? Shit on the likes of Gimlet, says the Exile
"A reader has kindly sent me," starts a spurt by Gimlet Kamm, which then goes on to make much of a supposed typo in a Morning Star piece by Neil Clark.
According to Neil in both the printed and on-line versions the German definitive article "die" is rendered correctly, and his error in writing it "de" only crops up in the reposted version on his blog. I don't have access to the printed version of the paper and the electronic one is available by payment only, but I am inclined to wonder if Neil would be so daft as to lie about something that any number of Gimlet's stooges can check?
The point is that Gimlet, the short-arsed little fucker himself, claimed that some "reader had kindly sent" him the story from the Star, but if Neil's version is correct then it can only be that the error was picked up on Neil's blog. That could mean that Gimlet is a secret reader - and we have caught him out in a porkie!
It's a small point about a small fucker, but it is worth making as cheap laughs are always worth having.
