Perhaps he was deprived of oxygen at birth

By Steven | November 30, 2009

Here’s the really interesting thing about Stuff’s story about Paul Henry’s comments on Susan Boyle. They’re using a photo that makes Henry appear a bit retarded himself.

If you look at him carefully, you can make it out.

    Um, I don’t think it’s the photo that makes him seem retarded.

    I see Bryan Edwards intends to contact Susan Boyle’s agent, Simon Cowell, with a view to encouraging him to sue Henry in defamation.

    Can Women’s Weekly be a sufficient factual basis to ground a defence of honest opinion?

    Does Henry’s laughing and sniggering during the segment add to the sting?
