The fake-sheik strikes again, with Tulisa in the clink

4 June 2013

4 June 2013

The ‘fake-sheik’ has pulled off another classic sting operation, worthy of his time at the News of the World. Mazher Mahmood can add Tulisa Contostavlos, the ‘musician’ turned X-Factor judge, to his hit list today after she was arrested ‘by appointment’ earlier this afternoon following allegations of drug dealing made in The Sun on Sunday. Tulisa and a 35-year-old man are being held in custody in central London.

As the summer breeze blows begins to away the chill caused by Sir Brian Leveson, it seems that newspapers are increasingly willing to take risks. This will come as blow for our grubbier celebrities and politicians, who have had an easy ride for the last two years.

    What a foul little tart

    Why is ‘musician’ in quotes? A snide little dig from a ‘journalist’?

      Have you ever listened to N-dubz?

    “As the summer breeze blows begins to away the chill caused by Sir Brian Leveson…”
    She hasn’t been supplying you with any of those illicit substances, has she?

  • Aaron D Highside

    There are many opinions about Leveson. The only one upon which everyone agrees? He was expensive.

  • Greenslime

    Leveson is a first class, Grade A, pimmel poliermaschine!

  • george

    boasting to a total stranger that half the people in her address book were dealers indicates to me that Contostavlos is a grade A muppet who would have got nicked eventually. Leveson wasnt ever going to be able to protect the terminally stooopid

    • FrenchNewsonlin

      Leveson shouldn’t have been protecting anyone indeed should never have been convened. Let us hope he is being quietly booted into the long grass, despite the huge cost.

    The identity of the alleged “No.10 shaggers” has yet to be revealed. Have the press been muzzled, or are they complicit in the cover up? Should we care? Yes, because when a cover up is enacted primarily in order to spare the blushes of an inept politician, then the press have got a far worse credibility issue than they thought they had!

      I think you’ll find that it isn’t the surprise that it’s been made out to be. So, no, you shouldn’t care.

      • HY

        I know who “they” are and I don’t care. But I do care about a story being suppressed when the real story is the PM’s lack of judgement.

    • Tom Tom

      Are the “No10 Shaggers” also partial to lesbian housemaid, or is that another romp ?

  • Joe

    Wait – if this story is true, why would Leveson have made the blindest bit of difference?

    Papers only have something to fear if they lie. In this case, it was clearly true.

    Of course, if it turns out she’s innocent, the papers would have messed with someone’s life and there’ll be no repercussions.
