What has become of AxegrinderÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s favourite Fleet Street blogger Joe Mott Ã¢â‚¬’ the Daily Star’s Mr Showbiz?
He signed off from his day job with a leaving do on a boat where he “drank extremely heavily Ã¢â‚¬’ perhaps 15 or 16 brandies”, got the obligatory mock-up front page and “a brass Zippo inscribed with the words: Joe Mott Ã¢â‚¬’ My Skill Is Immense”.
For those who thought Motty had gone for good, he signs off his blog for the last time thus:
“Watch out for news of a VERY exciting website IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be launching in the near future plus keep reading my column in the Daily Star Sunday. And I might even be on TV again. Sorry.”
