ramos, a telegraph reader?!

La Vanguardia’s incompetent in London, Rafael Ramos, used to file stories that – apart from his appalling spelling – bore remarkable resemblances to articles in The Guardian and The Times. When I caught him out the paper refused to take an interest and he started using The Times more, presumably secure in the knowledge that most ex-pats are unlikely to shell out for access to the online edition. Now it seems he’s found another source: compare this story and his version. But wait, what’s a radical like him doing reading a feudal rag like the Torygraph?! Sack the man!

I’ve just seen that this has already been reported in the comments section of Iberian Notes.
