I suppose it had to happen
. Huttonian has just had a long interview with a pleasant reporter from the Mail on Sunday about the rant. Apparently 'a free lance reporter' tipped off the Mail with a 'dossier' taken from the old ancient discontinued rant and claiming that it caused massive upset in thes parts and particularily in Hutton. The Mail has now been seeking comments from the upsetees or alleged previous targets. They then (plus photographer) came to see me for a cup of coffee and the Huttonian angle on all this. Which they got. I think they were somewhat surprised to hear that this was all a year and more ago. I have a fairly shrewd idea of the identity of the 'free lance reporter' or the source of the story if it is not the saame body and the interesting timing of this hold the first six pages expose. The person concerned-if I am right is under a certain amount of pressure at the moment and this might be a pleasant diversion (if not an act of revenge!?)
Anyhow Bloggees get hold of the MOS on,er, Sunday and we will see how it will be treated. Sadly follow up stories if any will have to await Huttonian's return from foreign parts. Some of the tale might be a bit wide of the real mark-apparently the dossier alleges that a very senior local figure threatened Huttonian with physical violence after aspersions apparently cast at his son. Not true M'Lud.
The reporter said she had read the current blog (called boring byone or two readers compared to what went before) had had found nothing to raise much of an eyebrow.
Comment later . If I am spared.
