The Telegraph’s view on Conrad Black

More from the blog’s new department of sweet irony.

The Daily Telegraph reports of the trial of Black (uncannily similar to the Guardian’s, even down to a timeline) describe his wife, Barbara Amiel as “the virulently right-wing journalist.”

No, really. It’s not a typo, for once. The Daily Telegraph did call indeed someone virulently rightwing. The mind boggles at quite how extreme you would have to be for the Telegraph to use this description.

The paper also reported that the Conservative Party had decided that Lord Black couldn’t count as a Tory in the House of Lords any more. 😀
