Having lost star writer Lenny Lottery to arch rival The Mirror, The Sun has revealed its latest specialist scribe – Mandy Millennium. In a revealing scoop, The Sun’s “Mandy” managed to get her hands on the Millennium Dome’s very own “Mandy” Mandelson.
The minister without portfolio was quoted as saying: “I’m absolutely delighted The Sun has thrown its weight behind the Millennium celebrations.”
Surely the timing of The Sun’s cheer-leading support for the Dome couldn’t have anything to do with its sister company BSkyB announcing a 12m sponsorship deal with the Greenwich scheme the day before? And, if so, does the editorial support count as sponsorship and therefore part of BSkyB’s 12m support?
