image for Hislop's Hat called to Hacking enquiry
Hat's Entertainment...

Notorious quip-merchant and panellist on 'Haven't I got News for You?' Ian Hislop's hat is to be called to give evidence at the Leveson inquiry into press ethics.

The famous fedora has so far refused to speak but is expected to give evidence following a furious row with the TV funnyman.

Hislop had this to say in a statement: 'Fred the Fed, as I call him, is a traitor. To speak at this enquiry without me goes against everything we have been through. Wherever I've laid that hat has largely been my home. Its no longer welcome at 'Hislop Heights'.'

The move follows earlier unsuccesful attempts to get Piers Morgan's smirk to appear and Kelvin Mackenzie's bravado.

Make Terry Firmer's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
