Headline on BBC News - Beds, Herts & Bucks:

"Plans for a new water incinerator in Bedfordshire came under fire in the House of Commons."

Deborah McGurran
BBC Political Editor for the East

When you get to the article its actually waste incinerator.

Here's a link (on right towards the bottom) but I bet it will be gone soon...

It's still there after two days.

Maybe there is such a thing as a water incinerator. Am I going to feel stupid if that's the case!

I think it would be brilliant if all of us writers collude on a massive hoax, and post stories about it in a serious reporting way.

Just to see if the press, the TV and the internet pick up on it and believe it.

Could be fun, but it would have to be something kind of plausible...

Anybody?

Skoob.

Some 'new' Spoofers out there do you think?

How would it work Skoob? Where would we post it? Sorry, that sounds very negative - you know I love a plausible spoof, but how do we get it published in a non-spoof environment so people believe in it?
