I see that Rhondda AM Leighton Andrews has been a busy boy over the last few days. First he was busy tweeting about the made up smear the London parties and Daily Telegraph launched on Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon. And then he was busy deleting all the tweets when he finally realised that the whole smear was fake.
To read about the smear in more detail you should check out Wings over Scotland
, but here's a quick summary. The Telegraph ran a front page story claiming that someone had been told that someone else had been told by the French Ambassador that Nicola Sturgeon had told the French Ambassador she wanted David Cameron to remain as PM. This is despite the fact the SNP have promised
that should the Tories try and form a government they will vote against this.
In what should surely stand as a textbook example of the growing irrelevance of print media compared with the instantaneous nature of the internet the story was debunked before the papers even hit the shops.
