Olaf Priol Nearly Got Me

I read the piece in today's Guardian with mounting anger and dismay. Chris Martin, inspiration of angst ridden songs by Coldplay which have sold 17 million albums worldwide, had joined the Conservatives? Martin had discovered he's played Cameron at fives when he was at Sherborne? Blair was a disaster and Chris was now a right-on Tory because he liked Dave's shoes? 'Come on' I shouted at the Guardian, 'you can't hit me with this shite!' And there's more: he's written a song to Dave which contained the lyric about the stylish footwear- 'It was the converse trainers that did it for me/I got mine in orange, wait til you see'. I actually liked Coldplay until this and feel disappointed, let down, betrayed. Even Tony Blair does not deserve this.

Cameron, it seems, is hoping for more bands to follow suit; he wants to call it 'Blue Wedge' and he wants the Arctic Monkeys and the Kaiser Chiefs to join in. This was so bad it was becoming surreal...or even untrue. Then a light bulb began to gather light in my poor old brain. Who wrote this? Olaf Priol. Sounds a funny name. Must be an East European journalist they've taken in on the cheap. Then the light came on. Well done Guardian. You always do it and usually I spot the joke- like that 'coup' on the island of San Serife way back- it but this time I was really very late on it.

Later note 2nd April: Was delighted to read in today's Observer, that Labour's information machine had swallowed the bait and sent out information about Martin's defection to all government members.
