Newspapers desperate to make the link

Desperation reporting is what I call it. Having failed to connect the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik with any extremist groups in the UK, the press is now using his eBay purchases to make the connection. Particularly pathetic is the sighting of a DIY tool, that I recognise as the same as one I own – it’s a small hand vice used to hold small items on a pillar drill. The fact that this lunatic used it to hold bullets, is hardly the fault of the Sheffield tool store that sold it to him via eBay and falls a very long way short of a clear link to Britain. What next in this desperate search? Will we be told he was wearing underpants bought from a well known UK high street name?
