I do like a good headline and I think this particular art form has reached its apogee on the BBC news website with this gem among gems:

James Blunt 'stopped World War Three'

I will be amazed if this can ever be beaten but I look forward to future attempts.

  1. When I read the headline "Blunt stopped WWIII" in the "most read" side bar of the beeb website I assumed they were talking about Anthony not James. I'm reading a lot of Le Carre' at the moment so I readily clicked on the link expecting to see something along the lines of "because the information he passed to the Russians demonstrated how inept the West actually was".

    Well you can't even start to imagine my surprise when I read the article itself!
