Bloody Journalists

Pardon my French. But journalists do like to stir. And the journalists on the Islington Gazette are no different. According to one of their recent stories, everyone was up in arms about the launch of the British Street Food Awards at Whitecross Street Market in Islington because the event was “private”. Of course it was PRIVATE — it was a private launch.

For journalists, who were (hopefully) going to write about it. So I didn’t invite along the market traders. Or my friend Alan. Or my Mum. That’s torn it. If my Mum finds out, I’m in trouble.
