Did Buzzcocks write Chronicle’s ‘dodgy tabs’ article?

Facebook users were left amused by the headline of a recent Chronicle article, resulting in the main story being largely overlooked in the comment section.

‘Newcastle’s largest ever haul of suspected dodgy tabs has been seized’

There is no doubt that the story is of interest – particularly to smokers in the city, but the use of the phrase ‘dodgy tabs’ seemed to distract from the discovery by the council.



As you can imagine, a barrage of witty remarks and memes were left in the comment section by fans of the Chronicle Facebook page – with one user suggesting that Buzzcocks must have written the piece.

Unfortunately, self proclaimed ‘Godfather of Cramlington’ was not the creator of the article – although we are sure a weekly column would go down well with many Chronicle readers.
