Amir Khan questions adviser about buying cheese house on the moon

The Bolton News: OVER THE MOON: Amir Khan OVER THE MOON: Amir Khan

AMIR Khan prank called his property adviser to ask if he should buy a house on the moon.

The Bolton boxer was playing call or delete on Nick Grimshaw's breakfast show on BBC Radio One this morning.

The game involves celebrity guests making prank calls live on air to people purportedly selected at random from their phone.

The unlucky victim this morning was Amir’s property adviser, Nabeel, prompting Amir to ask his views on investing in a house on the moon.

“What do you think? Richard Branson’s bought one and a lot of people are investing in it,” Amir asked enthusiastically.

Nabeel then questioned Amir on the price - about two million - and suggested it was a bad idea.

The adviser appeared to realise something was afoot when Grimshaw, posing as a property salesman, suggested he visit their real estate website, cheesemoonhouse.com, to see the range of mozzarella bungalows and parmesan houses for himself.

Nabeel agreed and said “I’ll have to investigate that. I’ve been in the real estate industry for 20 years and this is the first I’m hearing of it.”

After the call finished, Amir laughed and praised his adviser for being "professional and respectful".

You cant click your anti rubbish story link if you have no internet connection and pay for the newspaper. Perhaps your comments reveal why the BN is a dying newspaper. Have you ever heard of the saying.. the customer s always right?. Obviousley not!

I agree the BN is dying for various reasons but on this occasion the BN is right and the miserable ,mealy mouthed commentators lacking in a sense of humour are wrong.
I am not particularily amused by the story but some people will be and who is to say people who buy the paper don't want to read this type of stuff anyway?

Onto one of the reasons the paper is soon to be extinct:
never fully investigating a story especially when Bolton council are involved and leaving more questions than answers which gives the impression the reporters are afraid of upsetting the council, who I know spend a great deal of money with them, a cynic might say for this purpose?

This is borne out by the BN never criticising the council even when it is proved they are wrong. It serves the council well that one of the main routes of communication (viz the Bolton scene?) is a local newspaper and to "have them on your side" is a bonus and helps keep you in power?

The staff at the BN need to wake up,take notice and change there loyalty somewhat.
I stopped buying it mainly for the reason I have highlighted here and when they start charging for reading online I will go elsewhere. (probably the Bury times ?)

We would like to read the names of the council tax dodging councillors Julian. Then your paper might be taken more seriously. What are you afraid of?
