Mirror off the hook as Blunkett's blonde speaks out
As MediaBeak reported on Monday, a disgruntled David Blunkett said he was going to report the Mirror to the PCC over its story of his relationship with 29 year old Sally Anderson. He was upset by how his own comments turned out in print to reveal his latest 'love interest'.
According to today's Press Gazette Blunkett and the Mirror have kissed and made up - he's no longer going to complain to the PCC while the Mirror has offered to print a 'clarification' in respect of its story - a story + quotes, which MediaBeak notes it still says it stands by 100 per cent - oh the semantics of it all!
Here's MediaBeak's clarification:
Blunkett maintined his relationship was 'platonic'
Sally Anderson describes him as 'passionate' and ditched her boyfriend.
If he wants his private life to be kept out of the spotlight then he might consider finding 'paltonic' friends who have not got boyfriends or husbands. If Sally Anderson's been speaking to the Mail today, what's to stop her dumped boyfriend speaking to the Mirror tomorrow!
