I remember the ultimate tabloid headline as being: ‘Pop star in sex change mercy dash to palace’
Still a classic: “Headless body found in topless bar.”
Shame he wasn’t a bogus asylum seeker too. That would have pushed every button.
I’d say this is more of a “shake your head and tut at the human trash” kind of story. For a good, apoplectic asylum-seeker headline, you’d ideally want them to be “jumping the NHS queue in front of a cancer-filled 6 year daughter of a war hero.”
