Or did one plagiarise the other? And if so, who is the guilty party?
AJN Watch passes this on to the far more experienced Media Watch.

AJN WATCH - the on-line voice of Australian Orthodox Jewry observes and comments on matters of interest to that community. We particularly monitor prejudice and monopolistic abuse of influence in the pages of the Australian Jewish News - the main source of information to and about Australian Jewry. We spotlight errors, expose misrepresentations and vigorously advocate our community's positions.
I forwarded the above to the editor of the Jewish News - who responded:ReplyDelete
Many thanks for forwarding me this.
I can assure you, and anyone else you may wish to share this with, that there was no plagiarism.
My former colleagues in London asked me what we at AJN were doing for a Purim spiel and I forwarded them my story.
I am gratified that they found it sufficiently humorous to include in their publication.
