Ã¢â‚¬Å“Prescott in further tests after malaria is ruled outÃ¢â‚¬, was typical of the headlines this week after deputy PM was taken to hospital.
But just where did the idea start that Two Jags had picked up such an unlikely bug Ã¢â‚¬’ given the swanky hotels he enjoys staying in? The news of PrezzaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“suspected malariaÃ¢â‚¬ was broken by the News of the World.
But, as one rival newspaper hack reveals in an email to me: Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all a bit odd because PrescottÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s people said from the offset it definitely wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t malaria.
