Last week, the Diary did something it has never done before. It read something in its downmarket rival twice. The Diary was flabbergasted, discombobulated, even.
Was there really a complaint from two hacks that after being treated to the premiere of Lord of the Rings 3, a PR executive had failed to deliver a taxi for them immediately? Surely a little too precious, my precious? The Diary suggests they get a sense of proportion about their status in life.
We would hope that not all hacks are tarred with the same brush and would like to point out that MM's mortgage scoop meister was there. She got the bus home and passes on her thanks for the film.
