Never let the truth....

get in the way of a good column. The Indy's media columnist Stephen Glover doesn't think it matters if fellow columnists make predictions that turn out to be wildly wrong:
If they were careful and calculating machines, writing arid, cautious pieces for the comment pages of The Financial Times, they would not be so free with their prophecies. They would also be far less readable.
Glover's point that "Only a fool would read a columnist to discover what is going to happen" does rather beg the question why columnists claim that they know what is going to happen.
