Sham Marriages for Private Gain

I seem to be Cathy Odgers' PR - it's easy she writes great copy. Today her post is on Posh and Becks and the apparent ill advised case to sue the NoTW for libel. See her post here and a report on the case here. Cathy's argument is the "marriage" is maintained by the couple purely for vast personal gain.

The alleged motive reminds me of speculation during the election about a sham marriage in New Zealand. Perhaps we need the News of the World...

Exactly.

"The Truth" is a pathetic paper. Hellbent on stories about UFO's and women who have 8 quads. Boring shit.

If NZ had News of the World I can imagine the first story would be about Judith Tizard's relationship status with another prominent NZ politician that is for sure.

A random impertinent here.... where did Judith get that huge rock on her right hand from?

These are questions News of the World would uncover...

Great find Cathy - Certainly the rock will not be a gift from a (h)ard(ent) admirer. Tizard in the photo looks like she's reacting to being goosed by the DPS man on her left. The woman to her right looks rather distracted! Look's like a witches coven (see the devil in the immediately preceding Flickr photo) overseen by Goshe and the DPS.

Someone asked me what job I would like on return to NZ the other day...

You know something I would consider returning to NZ to be would be editor of a NZ News of the World.

Wouldn't it just be a fucking great job uncovering all this dirty shit?

And I hear it pays ok as well, especially if you are clever enough about it not to get sued. And therefore clever enough to keep your job.
