    The correction and clarification in his case should read : "Richard Littlejohn is barkingly insane, for which the Daily Mail apologises" :D

    Maybe living in Florida he gets called a cunt less often by his editor.

    I suspect it just means he hears it less often.

    But no less often by most of the UK population.

    From ordinary working and lower middle class backgrounds too.

    And just to deal with the bottom half of the page. It was never, never about what colour our passport covers are.

    He was indeed.

    Off topic but I can highly recommend the National Trust tour of the Beatle's childhood homes if you want to learn about their lives before the band.

    I'm sorry, Nadine Dorries MP, but the referendum wasn't one on the colour of passports, you vapid bodice-ripper writing, publicity-hungry, political non-entity! This isn't "contempt for the electorate" that is being displayed. Only a relatively few MPs have voiced an opinion. It's contempt for the political establishment, and for their perceptions of OUR priorities, that is being displayed.

    A quick straw poll of DM readers by looking around Costa Coffee in Colchester Tesco gives median reader age of around 78 so no worries of undue adverse voter influence for Corbyn at next GE. :D

    Virgin trains are shit. At least you can wipe your arse an a Daily Mail, Virgin train toilets are disgusting and the doors don't close properly. And Branson's as big a cunt as Dacre any day.

    I suspect Virgin/Stagecoach may have done this as a publicity stunt. There are other papers which have the same editorial line, but which aren't quite so synonymous with division. The Express, for example, went well past parody at some point in the last millennium, but frankly nobody could care less about them either way.

    I don't buy the Mail but my parents do. Today's particularly amused me. Not just the front page but a couple of other stories too about what an awful state the NHS is in. This from a rag that has done nothing over the years but tell folk to vote Tory...

    Be fair; they've also conscientiously warned us of all the things that cause and cure cancer. That must've saved the NHS several times over.

    Although I believe he doesn't sit in the Lords, it's a bit rich for today's front page to lambast the Upper House when their proprietor uses a hereditary title. The same proprietor who loves Britain so much that he says he lives in France to avoid British tax, even though he lives somewhere in the West Country.

    There are in fact not two but three things in this world that can be said to be certain: death, taxes, and the answer to any question ever posed on the front page of the Daily Mail invariably being 'No'.
