One of my guilty pleasures in the eighties, was walking down the local shops, just to be the first to catch a glimpse of the latest headlines from the Sunday Sport. My favourites had usually involved aliens.
The Sunday Sport is still going strong and still churning out the ridiculous headlines. In this era of all news being called fake, I find this reassuring.
A light-hearted look at “fake” news.

Back then I had shared the house with another writer. I see now he writes books. 📚
Paperback Writer He had worked for the Guardian on their advertising page.
I remember them telling me that their job interview had involved showing they could sell a ballpoint pen.
I remember my fellow writer getting upset with us, as for some strange reason we had decided not to let him share the cake we were eating. He had gone off to his room and put a sign on the door, stating, “No nasty girlies allowed in.” I think we deserved it.
We had all used to hang out at the local Italian restaurant. I remember something about an inflatable bus too but I cannot remember what that was about. I have a picture of all of us in the restaurant with the bus, somewhere. We had also developed a taste for Irish Coffee.
One of my flatmates had complained about continually going to foreign films with subtitles We had also gone to see a lengthy film about the Tolpuddle martyrs who had been transported to Australia.
