But none of this is why I have written this post. It irks me that the first paragraph reads, and I quote:
Gordon Brown has appeared on the US talent show American Idol to promise to buy 20 million mosquito nets for malaria-hit countries.
Truth is, I don't think Gordon Brown has £200 million in his bank account! What the report really says, of course, is that the UK Government, a.k.a. the British Taxpayer, is buying the mosquito nets. Typical political grandstanding which simply should not be allowed to go uncommented. Media, where are you?
