I wish to apply for the position of Thursday Columnist, which I understand had recently become vacant.
I believe I possess many of the requisite characteristics for the job, chiefly the fact that although I hung round a tribunal for five years, I have never lied to a sworn public inquiry.
I’ve also got a Twitter account and a Facebook page, so I’m down with the kids, which I know is important what with those cheapskate iPad -wielding bastards refusing to pay for a paper any more. I’ve even got a personal blog, though I have rather neglected it lately.
Did I mention that I never lied to a tribunal and then made light of it on prime time television in front of an infuriated nation?
In addition, I’m fortunate enough to be the owner of a soft Donegal burr. This should prove to be an asset when I start podcasting my column, as it appeals to the critical Daniel O’Donnell segment, a market so far ignored by the newspaper of record.
I mentioned the Not A Liar thing already, didn’t I?
I look forward to hearing from you before the deadline on Wednesday.
PS: Not a liar.
To elide the difference between lying and perjury by the usage “lying to a sworn public enquiry” is a disappointing smear, to put it mildly.
Sarah Carey has a lot of views that are unpleasant to me, and is especially irrational on the subject of Denis O’Brien, but I do not recognise the caricature here.
I do not share your view, also held by many others, that she “made light of lying”.
What smear? She lied. I said she lied.
Or are you saying it’s okay to lie if it’s not under oath?
