Because I say so!

What were they thinking? The News Quiz is going to have a field day with this one.

Story goes that someone from the British Conservative Party changed a date in Wikipedia. Why? So that is backs party leader David Cameron's statement!

Excerpt from News24:

"You told us the other day you were like Titian aged 90. The fact is Titian died at 86," the leader of the Conservative Party told the Labour prime minister.

Within minutes, a Wikipedia user registered at Conservative party headquarters logged on and changed Titian's date of death from 1576 to 1572 to conform with Cameron's statement.

Can't ... stop ... laughing ...
