A few of the papers today are very excited about claims that 'pub landlord' Al Murray and Prime Minister David Cameron are "cousins":
Murray himself is less impressed, taking to Twitter to describe it as "PR puff for a genealogy website", "total cobblers" and perhaps most colourfully "a fabulous crock of #notnews bullshit".
The Mirror explains:
"Mr Cameron's great, great, great, great, grandfather was [John] Talbot Shakespear, a senior bureaucrat with the East India Company. Mr Shakespear was also Vanity Fair author [William] Thackeray's uncle [by marriage]. And Al Murray is [William Thackeray's] great, great, great grandson."
Cousins? They're practically brothers. Al Murray should drop the PM a tweet demanding a backlog of Christmas and birthday presents.
