Sleuth wakes up a strange bed. Where's the alka-seltzer?

Published on December 17th 2009.

Sleuth 18/12/2009

There is no Sleuth today. Sleuth is pictured below. It was the Manchester Confidential Christmas party last night. Ear to the Ground, the events company, were sharing the Mark Addy with Gordo, Sleuth and the team. John Drape of Ear to the Ground was so drunk he was actually floating near the ceiling gibbering. It was funny. Until we all joined him.

So Sleuth has no idea why he's dressed like this. He clearly remembers leaving the office at 6pm without a lyre or a sword or a laurel wreath. Sleuth has no idea who's bed that is. Sleuth wants to say sorry for everything.

Of course you will J. half of the articles will be about Robert Owen Brown and ManCon blowing smoke up his backside. The other half will be ManCon making snide digs at the MEN media group. As you were then.

Sleuth is worried that someone thinks they saw Michael Barrymore there. and he can't recall what happened.

I knew at the time singing 'its just a chicken in a basket' would have repecrussions.................

To J and bambino. We had in November this year, last time I counted, around 150 editorial pieces published on Confidential, with over 30 news and comment pieces and 30 food and drink pieces plus 25 art and architecture bits and bobs, 10 satirical articles and so so on..... So yes you'll be getting lots. With due respect to bambino the article on the Homepages (not the one above I assume) about 'Confidential picking up the MEN' is not a snide dig about the MEN its a direct frontal assault on the mis-management of the paper by the Guardian Media Group which has resulted in its possible sale and the loss of 189 years of Guardian heritage here. Nothing snide about it, absolutely direct. And don't you like the Manchester media trying humour - even if you think it poor?

I agree with AC. Will i be guaranteed a certain number of articles per week once I am being charged for the priviledge?

I think I will chance the two quid a month, they haven't done a bad job over the past four years or so; Bambina, are you on the right site?

A bold move to not provide what I would imagine is one of your most popular articles given your plan to start charging for access!
