No one can believe the Financial Times used this ridiculous hip-hop headline,”G-Dawg splashes tax cuts like P Diddy with champagne but the banks miss out on the bling,” for a front page opinion piece. The piece is about Finance Minister George Osborne, who revealed the UK’s newest budget plans yesterday.
The New Statesmen’s Alex Hern ripped into them with a piece saying the FT has “lost its motherloving mind with ill-advised rap themed front page opinion piece.”
The web version, however, currently uses a more tame version going with “Osborne more Boy George than rapper.”
