Max Out

Oh dear.

Guardian travel writer blags a freebie for his son to write a travel blog. Ripped to shreds in the comments:

Max, 19, hits the road

There's even already a parody blog:

Wayne Type, 19, hits the road

Not sure what they're angrier about - the fact that his Dad wangled him the trip, that a national newspaper is paying for what is essentially his gap year or that he comes across as the living embodiment of Nathan Barley.

Of course, the flip side is that it would seem he's young, good looking, connected, cool and about to go on a year of partying at someone else's expense - teensy bit jealous at all, chaps?

  1. It's clearly the jealousy thing. In response to the Mike Conway scandal Private Eye named and shamed all of the editors who had employed their children (which was basically all of them) most of whom had worked under their mother's maiden names to hide the fact. But no fuss ever seemed to be made about them.
