Love the way the Mail reader tries to justify it by saying 'others are as bad' in much the same way that Covid deniers say 'it's as bad in other countries'.

The Mail is a rabblerousing rag read by people who consider themselves too intelligent to read The S*n.

The Mail seems to be obsessing about the actual date of Harry's wedding at the moment.

I would pair The Mail with The Mirror.

You will struggle to  find any real news in either the Mail or the Mirror. The only places you can find real news in UK newspapers these days is in the Grauniad, the Telegraph and maybe the FT.

The FT maybe.

Definitely not The Guardian. They did some laudable things with Wikileaks and Edward Snowden. But their bias has got the better of them with Brexit and the current government. They are blinded by their metropolitan champagne socialism.
What really took the biscuit was when the Tories made a spoof Labour website at the last election. The home page was along the lines of 'Labour - a Conservative Party Website'. But they screen-shotted just the Labour bit and stirred up a complete shitstorm of idiots who believed their nonsense. I too was outraged at such a deception, so I went to the website in question and could immediately see it was just the Guardian being idiots. Up until then I had held their editorial policy / standards in high esteem, albeit biased. Now I see them as a left wing rag. End of.

So they are the same standard as the Mail - full of nonsense, but without the sidebar of shame to keep me up to date with popular culture.

I draw the line at Lizzo in a bikini though.

They have been harassing Harry for ages. I really despise that they do that. Harry is a twat, Megan is a reprehensible manipulator. But just leave them alone! I ignore all that nonsense, it's a waste of pixels!

The big blot on the copybook of the The Mail was giving a platform to that appealing woman Katy Hopkins.

I hope that's a typo there Roy

Well spotted

Any chance a mod can correct my original?
Trust me, I do not find Katy Hopkins appealing.



Global Moderator Comment The original text has been quoted a couple of times now so changing the original wouldn't make sense in the thread flow. You've corrected the error now anyway here.

The Telegraph was once a reasonable although right wing biases newspaper, its little more than the Daily Mail for people with a larger vocabulary but no more intelligence.

It certainly isn't bias to expose the utter corruption and dishonesty of the current government of traitors that is more BNP than anything else.

Sadly too many people are happy to see UK and what remains of its democracy destroyed as we head towards a one party state.

To quote the ex editor of the Telegraph, Max Hastings on "Boris" Johnson:

Quote
[Johnson is] unfit for national office, because it seems he cares for no interest save his own fame and gratification...[his] premiership will almost certainly reveal a contempt for rules, precedent, order and stability.

Ok so I had genuinely never heard of a "Lizzo" or knew what a "Lizzo" is.

Google 'Lizzo in a bikini'...

Oh....dear....God....

You don't get excitement like that in the stuffy boring Morning StarGuardian eh!!

She's a regular fixture in the sidebar of shame.

Are you saying that right wing biases indicate a lack of intelligence?

I thought the Big News today was a report that said we didn't live in a racist society.

Although it didn't take all of the Lefties to say it was bollocks because we don't like the Tories, and all of the right wing press to say that we knew that, we have been saying that all along.

Not sure it helps.

A bit like calling people gammon.

Lizzo makes really good music, and she's really good at playing the flute.
I admire the confidence of putting up your bikini pics knowing people will make the sort of comments about being fat etc and not giving a shit. Something to aspire to (but then of course the Mail would comment, their audience is middle aged women)
I also admire the work put in to do online sex work like Lottie. Although perhaps we are lacking a market for photos of scantily clad bearded pot bellied blokes  :-\

As far as the people not knowing what a Lizzo is... :lol:
