Tim Walker: Mandy/Osbo/Nat scoop mine, not Ivens'

The Telegraph's Mandrake gosser Tim Walker writes ....

I am Tim Walker and I am cheered by these kind remarks. The only reason I started boasting about the Deripaska/Osborne/Rothschild/Mandelson (perm any pair you choose as we mentioned them all in our first story) is that Martin Ivens of the Sunday Times claimed in the Guardian media section that this scoop was his. It was not at all.

Dear Tim,
Thank you, darling. In the light of this explanation, I fully concur. Ivens' vainglorious piece was truly comic, especially since he claimed he and his mighty paper would be pursuing Mandy ... and delivered precisely nothing so far as I can see, beyond lots of made-up questions designed to bring about a third Mandy resignation. Mandy is Arcati's hero, his media manipulations are a thing of Banksy, though I wouldn't expect you to agree with that. MA x

Dear Madame, this is not relevant to this posting but perhaps Mr Walker will take note. Your Followers include a number of professional strumpets termed "escorts". Is it your intention now to become a marketplace for harlotry? The Arcati site is guilty of many things but I hadn't expected it to be turned into a bordello. If you don't remove these whores' advertisements I shall not return to your site though I shall inform Blogger.

Up there among the followers of Arcati, seek 'em out: marvellous blogs, such good writers. Now can we get back to poor Tim ...

Notice how the creature calling itself Arcati changes its tune. First it writes a critical piece of Walker, now it smarms. Pathetic.

no,no, ivens claimed the scoop about the fact that mandy had been "dripping poison". ephraim hardcastle in the mail placed mandy and osborne at lunch together in Corfu; then Ivens got briefed about "poison" (this to be fair is what he claims, though he did do it rather painfully, agreed); then tim walker did the yacht minus nat; then nat put himself there. God, this is now getting dull but we do need it to be right if we are going to start boasting, don't we Tim?
