JK Which one is Simon Bird [Daily Mirror's north-east football writer]?The Guardian have kindly transcribed the interview in full, uncensored, while the Daily Mirror (as you see above, it was their own Simon Bird who had the dubious honour of triggering the rant) has the full audio, albeit with an amount of bleeps that makes it almost unlistenable (and their print report censors all the swearing too).
JK You're a cunt.
SB Thank you.
With this censorship in mind, I have a question – why do tabloids deem it acceptable to run uncensored pictures of topless women, while at the first sign of a swear word their writers leap for the asterix key?
I'll leave that one with you.
