Eleven words: Shortest Guardian story on Israel ever?

It must have been an extremely slow day at the Israel desk of AP on May 8, as I’m still at a loss to understand this headline and “story“.

Here’s the headline:

Now, here’s the, um, story.

That’s right. The text in the story is exactly the same eleven words used in the headline.

I could be reading too much into this but we can only hope that this is part of a larger Guardian Group business plan to cut costs (in light of a  £58.6 million operating loss during FY2011) by using wire services (like AP) more, and on-the-ground “reporters” (like Harriet Sherwood) less.

A boy can dream can’t he?
