This had me pretty much fuming today. I think the paper have basically made a big deal out of nothing.

I'm actually moving this to KT General for a bit because no-one really checks this section anymore. And I want people to share in my anger :lol:

The headline on the actual paper is "KT's fury at mums BNP lover" which caused my jaw to nearly hit the floor in sainsburys as I assumed it was her actual mum, and lover kind of implies affair (probably their intention). Instead it's actually her birth mothers HUSBAND (very misleading to say lover instead I reckon) and not the woman who's brought her up for 34 years.

This was actually front page news. I'm glad obviously to see KT back in the headlines but over this just annoyed the hell out of me :lol: Front page news, seriously? That KT's birth mothers husband supports BNP and she's not speaking to him?

I generally find the approach of this a bit offensive to KT's actual family. Obviously im in no position to say that, they might be just like "oh yeah whatever it doesnt bother us what the papers say" but I just think it's MORE SHODDY JOURNALISM FROM THE DAILY RECORD.

:lol:

I agree, they're making something out of nothing. I hate it when private things like this get splashed across papers and called "news". :roll:

I have to say though that I learned much more about KT's birth background than any other venue in that one article. Despite the fact it didn't belong in the article (the article morphed from politics to KT's mother's decision for adoption), it was highly informative for me. I can understand why it would offend many of you but consider the positives. It was a very detailed piece about a part of KT's life which I never knew about.

Most of that was from an article that came out years ago and it was a bit of a heated issue as KT later expressed that it had deeply upset her parents.

I want to know what a yoghurt knitter is?........ anyone?

What a load of pish, seriously, Im just glad that it will be at the bottom of a budgie cage by tomorrow (and annoyed at myself for spending £1.30 on it when I dont have a budgie, maybe I could feed it to the dog)

Im sure there must be SOMETHING going on SOMEWHERE in the world that the daily record didnt have to resort to this, I mean really.

Ange I just googled the term, and it means "tree hugging leftie" :lol:

Or:

Yoghurt knitters are people who worry about things as long as they are in the news, and at no other time.
It can also be a general term for people who over-react to what the media say.

Well if its the first definition I guess Im a yoghurt knitter too :lol:

We could have a ceremonial mass burning, actually that is a great idea, much more exciting than allowing a bird to sh*t on it! :twisted:

Jeez, what kind of bogus article is that? What a bunch of amateurs at the Daily Record... I can't remember them ever producing an article worth reading that was posted on here, honestly.
Shame we can't do anything about it though... Guess it'll always be an annoyance. In that respect I'm absolutely not jealous of anyone famous.
Hope it won't cause too much/more disturbance within KT's family.

*wondered what the hell a yoghurt-knitter was too!*

Thought that was a weird expression, hadn't heard it before. I think I fall under the category "Yoghurt knitters are people who worry about things as long as they are in the news, and at no other time" myself.

I don't recall reading that earlier article from which most of the info for this was pinched...I probably did, but it was ages ago so this in a way was a refresher. HOWEVER, it is crappy journalism...why the hell it is on the front page I'll never know. Surely there's worse things happening in the world than this? Who really gives a rats whether KT is speaking to him or not (even though his political views are vile...yes, I have heard about the BNP despite not being from the UK), that's their business, not for the rest of the world to know.

I do feel sorry for her family though, having this crap brought up again...as Kim said, hope it doesn't distress them too much.

This sort of stuff should stay private, seriously, what a horrible article, i couldn't and didn't want to read all of it. I hope KT's family aren't too upset by it. If KT wanted to tell people private details about her life then she'd do it when and if (which i doubt) she wanted to, grrrr! Just let her be a musician and write about that!
