Daily Mail columnist Richard Littlejohn and the Guardian are hardly a marriage made in heaven. But, in a piece bashing local councils, Littlejohn reveals how he has relied on the Guardian to help fill his column.
Littlejohn writes: "For the past 20-odd years, this column has made a decent living documenting the insanity and waste in Britain’s Town Halls.
"If all else failed, there was always the Guardian jobs pages on a Wednesday to dig me out of a hole.
"The recruitment of five-a-day enforcers, lesbian bereavement counsellors and assorted real nappy outreach co-ordinators was guaranteed to raise a giggle."
There's even a picture of a serious looking bloke reading the Guardian to illustrate Littlejohn's article (see top).
