    sock image? the wanksock needed for the sad freaks who will be banging one out to an image of women in sportsbras? An image that bears the most tenous of relations to the story but provides some titttilation for its readership.

    they never fail to live down to expectations

    ...rifle...? a flippin' Bren Gun isn't it....?

    ...and there's 12 more where that came from...

    Well technically it is a rifle, since the barrel doubtless has lands and grooves imparting a spin to the slug for the purposes of accuracy.

    One of the earliest Light Machine Guns, a category of weapon which the pictured firearm appears to be, was called the Browning Automatic Rifle.

    Is there no end to the evil machinations of these foreign types? Screen Shot 2016-10-08 at 14.04.28-1.png

    You might find some superficial damage to the box, but the chocolate’s perfectly edible. I’ve given them to all the ladies I know aged fifty and under. Over fifty just seems sarcastic.

    Todays daily mail has peppered its article on Amber Rudds decision to not hold an enquiry on Orgreave, with photos from Jeremy Dellers re-eneactment of the battle of Orgreave art happening , rather than the original ones. Alongside shit spellings and shit grammar ( so bad, even I can see these ) , the Daily mail really is a amateur publication run by useless cunts

    Just look at all this anti-migrant hatred from the Daily Mail, Express and Sun.

    Does the Express deserve its own "is shit" thread, or is too much of a given? Looking back at all their daily front pages during October, only four haven't had leading headlines on Brexit or immigrants. Poor old Diana only gets one appearance in Dead Blonde Corner.

    For those interested, those three were on how wonderful Teresa May is, interest rates possibly going up, and some probably spurious bollocks about diabetes.

    I think the Express is too irrelevant to merit any attention, or even mention. On the one hand its openly racist front pages raise my blood pressure; but on the other it must be far more infuriating to Richard Desmond that his paper is routinely ignored by commentators and politicians alike no matter how vile its headlines. Chiefly because it is such a pathetic propaganda rag it makes Fox look like a credible news outlet.

    It does seem rather pointless, a less intelligent version of the Mail. Unless of course it's a very subtle Mail parody...

    Both papers, as well as the Telegraph and the Sun, have accepted the judicial ruling on the EU vote in typical calm style.

    Worth quoting the headline the Mail originally ran with when criticising the judges, which was later amended:

    Using 'openly gay' pejoratively in 2016. May's Britain.

    The Mail is THE excuse factory of choice for the right wing fantasists who dominate current political discourse. It has always been filled by low fact conjecture ( mainly revolving around scare mongering reactionary horrors based on dangers to the mythical sepia tinted joys of the days of Empire) and as such has always lived a part-time sewer dweller existence.
    It seems doubtful that the Mails views/moral posturing have deteriorated but rather the lessons of the Enlightenment - empiricism, logic and a belief in decisions based on thought rather than knee jerk reaction have been dropped in favour of rabble rousing populism by our "rulers".
    The pro-Brexit newspapers have finally lost touch with reality
    Sorry that I have had to post this summation from the Indy but I cant being myself to put a direct link to the "newspaper" itself
    What disappoints and causes most concern is the response by Truss
    Brexit ruling: Lord Chancellor backs judiciary amid row - BBC News
    A condemnation so feeble it equals Le Mays performance for the Remain campaign

    An aside :-The Yanks view Magna Carta as the basis of the "democracy" we currently enjoy, recognizing that the independence of the Law is the basis of civil society - a view no longer compatible with the world view of our Government, but then never has been for the Mail.
    The Mail is not going down the drain, the UK Govt has merely moved into SewerWorld with them

    The old favourite, "Crackdown on the motorist", re-emerges on today's front page. The subheading mentions 50mph limits on the motorway, a harder line on those who break the speed limit, and "new congestion zones". It's not as if we've just had a budget which froze fuel duty yet again and announced loads of road-building or anything.

    And yet they omitted to mention the one proposal other papers have focused on, and which will be welcomed by just about all motorists: the removal or redesign of speed bumps.

    The seemingly rhetorical question in a headline usually has the answer "no".
