I just accidentally read an article in the Daily Mirror about George Osborne failing to pull off a funny at the GQ awards last night.  I was sitting in a cafe and it happened to be open next to me (that’s my excuse).

My first question was “how could he be awarded Politician of the Year?”

And then “why do I care about who gets the approval of a magazine?”

And then “why am I looking at the Daily Mirror?”

Politicians, glossy mags, tabloid newspapers – a whole ecosystem of irrelevance.
