British government responsible for eBay transactions in America, agree Mail mods

How can you get a pathetic partisan attack on the Labour Government in a story about a Nintendo game? See the Mail comments section. The article tells the story of JJ Hendricks, who recently bought a very rare, gold NES game cartridge on eBay for £10,800.

This leads commentator Wainthrop to rant:
Surprised anyone can afford such frivolities after the mess NuLab has made of our economy. It sickens me whenever I thinnk about Gormless and his idiotic cabinet. They must think running a country is like playing a computyer game they do it with such reckless abandon!

This once great nation is now the laughing stock of the world. Thanks Labour!

But have a quick look at Hendricks' blog. Notice anything? Like the fact the price is in dollars? Or the use of the word 'Mom'?

Yes - Mr Hendricks is American (whois confirms the website is registered in Denver, Colorado). Why do the Mail moderators let through such idiotic and misleading comments?

  1. They let that comment through because it raises the average literacy level of their site.
