TOP TEN OF THE DAY

TOP 10 Misapplied tabloid titles

The popular press sometimes gets it wrong.

 

  1. The Coughing Major. It wasn’t he who coughed.

 

  1. Canoe Man. John Darwin, who faked his death in 2002 by paddling out to sea – in a kayak.

 

  1. The Russian Linesman. Tofiq Bahramov, who awarded England’s third goal in the 1966 World Cup final, was from Azerbaijan, USSR.

 

  1. The Bouncing Czech. Robert Maxwell, the Labour MP and crooked owner of the Daily Mirror, was Slovak.

 

  1. Lord Haw-Haw. Daily Express probably applied the name first to Wolf Mittler, a German journalist who spoke upper-class English, but William Joyce, hanged in 1946 for treason, became better known.

 

  1. Piltdown Man. Skull fragments, supposedly found at Piltdown, East Sussex, of an orangutan and modern human combined and presented as the “missing link” between ape and human in 1912; exposed as a hoax in 1953.

 

  1. The Tart of Gib. Carmen Proetta, a translator in Gibraltar, who had given uncomfortable evidence about the SAS killing of IRA members, was awarded libel damages from The Sun and other newspapers that had sought to discredit her by alleging she was a former prostitute.

 

  1. The Broadsheet Press. They are now mostly tabloid (like a small pill, or tablet) in size.

 

  1. Florida Phil. Former security guard Phil Wells was jailed in 1994 for stealing £1m from Heathrow airport, after four years on the run. Police believed he was in Florida, when he was really hiding in Essex.

 

  1. Gorbals Mick. Former speaker of the House of Commons Michael Martin was from Anderston, Glasgow, “which looks up at the Gorbals like it’s Belgravia”.
