The Mirror today ran an article about a report from the Office for National Statistics:
"THE UK has moved up the happiness stakes, despite the worst recession since the 1930s. A survey found 'life satisfaction' is the same as it was before the economic crash in 2007 – while most nations in Europe are gloomier. Brits are now happier than the French, Germans and Italians, according to the Office for National Statistics."
So far, so straightforward. The Mirror then went on to inform us:
"Greece, where Kelly Brook and boyfriend Danny Cipriani are on holiday, saw its happiness drop..."
Now that seems a bit tenuous. Surely people are familiar enough with Greece without needing to be told it's where Kelly Brook is on holiday as if that might be the only reason we would have heard of it. In fact, I'd wager that people may generally be more familiar with Greece's existence than they are with Kelly Brook's holiday plans. For example, I actually had no idea Kelly Brook was even on holiday currently, let alone in Greece, yet I already knew about Greece being a place.
The Mirror continued...
"Gorgeous Kelly, 33, yesterday gave her army of British fans something else to be happy about as she posted videos of herself …sunbathing…"
OK, I see what's happened here. To be fair to the Mirror, they probably had to weave Kelly in there somewhere to justify the absolutely massive picture they used of her to illustrate this story about new figures from the Office for National Statistics:
