Exclusive: Guido's short money "exclusive" was far from exclusive

Guido has splashed an "exclusive" about a "UKIP u-turn on short money" but regular readers of Bloggers4UKIP might have a sense of déja-vu reading Guido's "exclusive".

Not for the first time, a Guido "exclusive" has been found to be rather more inclusive than they'd like you to think. Carswell broke the news that he would be taking £350k of short money to his local paper, the Clacton & Frinton Gazette, a week after the election which we reported at the time.

And while they're explaining to young WikiGuido the difference between an exclusive and something that has already been in papers months ago, his employers might want to consider investing in an office dictionary so he can learn the difference between the words "recommend" and "insist":

Recommend: to suggest that someone or something would be good or suitable for a particular job or purpose, or to suggest that a particular action should be done
Insist: to say firmly or demand forcefully, especially when others disagree with or oppose what you say
Another day, another non-story about UKIP by headline-grubbing tabloids.
