Even local radio stations have reported veteran ex-MP’s passing, but it’s not true
Rumours have been circulating today of the death of veteran ‘Beast of Bolsover’ Dennis Skinner – and have even fooled some local media in his area.
Skinner is alive and well – and the hoax appears to be an attempt to pollute the success of a song about him, which has reached number 1 in the Amazon chart and top 20 in others.
The record can be purchased here. The SKWAWKBOX wishes Mr Skinner many more feisty years.
