Fans boycott Biffy

Fans of Ayrshire indie-rock group Biffy Clyro are threatening to boycott their favourite band after the appearance of one of their hits on the television show X-Factor.

The Scottish band’s 2010 anthem Many of Horror was performed by eventual winner Matt Cardle on Sunday’s final and has been released as a single in the race for Christmas number one, a move which has angered fans of ‘The Biff’, leading some to accuse the band of selling out.

“This is pure shockin’ man,” said one particularly spotty teenager.  “I’ve been following Biffy since they were playing wee town halls in Kilmarnock.  That’s when they had respect for their fans.  Not now that they’ve sold their soul for a few pounds.”

“They’ve shown that they don’t care about their real fans anymore, the ones who got them where they are today.  All they care about now is making money and getting their songs on TV,” berated another long-term fan.

“Rock music isn’t about making money and being heard on the radio,” bemoaned another follower of the Scots rockers.  “It’s about keeping it real and catering to the small group of fans who have been there since the beginning!  They’re our band, not yours!”

Anger as Clegg changes X-Factor vote at last minute

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has stepped into yet another voting row as it emerged today that he intends on reneging on his promise to vote for One Direction in tonight’s X-Factor final, instead now pledging to back Matt Cardle.

Mr. Clegg has been telling people for weeks that he will be registering his vote for the teenage boy band One Direction in the final of the hit talent show, insisting that it is his policy to “give the youth of today a chance”.

However, in a move which will come as yet another blow to Britain’s beleaguered student population, Liberal Democrat sources suggest that Mr. Clegg will go against his stated policy and instead vote for rival Matt Cardle.

It is unclear how much Mr. Clegg’s decision has been influenced by David Cameron.
