The following text appeared in this morning’s MediaGuardian email, referring to a story in both the Telegraph and the Mirror:

The BBC’s inquiry into John Humphrys’ alleged comments about ministers being lawyers amounted to a single phone call, the Today presenter claimed yesterday.

While it is a simple matter of record that a number of ministers including Jack Straw, Lord Falconer and of course “our Tone” are in fact qualified lawyers, I can well understand why Humphrys is upset. After all, who would want to be accused of suggesting that government ministers in some way have respect for rule of law? Outrageous!
