The Curse of Niall Paterson
Be careful if Sky reporter Niall Paterson mentions you or stands near you. On Budget Day he was nearly decapitated by a falling piece of scaffolding from the Number 11 Downing Street roof. Today he wrote a piece on the Boulton & Co blog comparing John McCain and his two elderly senatorial colleagues who are accompanying him on his visit to London, to the three characters from Last of the Summer Wine. And what happened next? Twenty minutes after Niall posted the piece on the blog the Press Association announced the death of actor Brian Wilde who played Foggy in the long running BBC comedy. The curse of Niall strikes again.
For those who are unfamiliar with Niall Paterson, he's the one on the left... :)
