Emmanuel Kelly Gets Booted Off X Factor

Despite Emmanuel Kelly getting a standing ovation and a special message from Yoko Ono, he’s been given the chop from X-Factor in favor of two, skimpy dressed,  make-up clad girls. Emmanuel Kelly, who was rescued from an orphanage in war torn Iraq fluffed the lyrics to a song several times and was given his marching orders by Guy Sebastian. After his shock elimination, the social Media sites went off, as people tweeted and texted their discontent. However, Emmanuel can take heart in the fact his song has touched millions. Yoko posted his rendition of Imagine on her website with the message

“Thank you, Emmanuel. You sang beautifully!
Thank you. John would have been proud of you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Love, yoko”

News Of The World Axed

News of the World is gone dot com! After 168 years Rupert Murdoch has been forced to close the paper thanks to a hacking and bribery scandal. Seems up to 4,000 phones were hacked by a private investigator working for Murdoch’s paper in order to get fodder for their stories. The most serious being the phone hacking of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler. The private detective hired to retrieve info had deleted several messages from her phone during the search for Milly leading the family to believe she was still alive.  Then there’s the corrupt police officers who were paid thousands by the News of The World journos for confidential information.The former editor Andy Coulson and several journalists are expected to be arrested soon over the police bribery claims. James Murdoch (Rupert’s son) has even admitted to trying to pay off some of the victims to buy their silence.  Oh and did I happen to mention the Prime Minister hired Andy Coulson as his chief spin doctor.Tsk, tsk, tsk. But don’t fret, cynics believe this is just a clever ruse by Murdoch to re-brand the paper. Hmm, so much for Fair and Balanced!!!!

Psst It is expected that 200 people will lose their jobs but surprisingly Rebekah Brooks ,the UK boss, and James Murdoch (Rupert’s son) won’t be among  them!
