They got me.

Yes, for a fair few paragraphs I was indeed taken in by The Guardian's April Fools joke. It shows how little regard I have for Coldplay and Mr. Martin that I believed it for as long as I did. I haven't downloaded the song but I'm sure it's hilarious...

I fell for it as well. The shame!

I have to put my hand up too. Saw it in Borders, planned to rush home, check the story and blog it as confirmation that pop stars should never enter the political arena because they are just stupid people with big mouths... and then the penny dropped.

However I stand by my pop star thesis.

You are right to do so, sir!

Ooh, and hi Billy!

Oh dear. I just can't imagine ever falling for something with the by-line "Olaf Priol"!

It's a good rule in life to always assume, as I do, that everything is a joke, until proved otherwise.

Yes, if I'd noticed the name before I started reading, I like to think I wouldn't have been taken in....!

I missed the byline until after I'd sussed it (I was on the train back from a horrible all night leaving do (my own) so I was a bit hung over - that's my excuse).

I started smelling fish at the bit about fives (not contemporaries surely?) and I didn't believe that even Cameron would fluff the names of the Monkeys and the Kaisers.

Has anyone checked the podcasts site? Was there a song?
