Peculiar

It seems to be a week in which Daily Mail headline writers are competing with each other to create the most offensive headline. Earlier in the week we had that headline on depression, yesterday we had Jan Moir giving her message to students in receipt of EMA: And today we have a story about how […]

Siding with the enemy

This is part one of ‘Richard Littlejohn: The cloaca series‘ In August 2006 Richard Littlejohn in an article about Muslims entitled ‘If they hate us so much, why don’t they leave?‘ wrote about Muslims that a: sizeable minority… have no desire to adapt to Britain.

In spite of official confirmations that the Boyzone star died of natural causes, the Mail has decided that […]

Daily Mail comments, always a hotbed for homophobia no matter what the circumstances, have today really excelled in tastelessly pointing out that gays cannot possibly marry: ’Revealed: The lonely life of Matt Lucas’s ex-husband who killed himself because he never got over their divorce‘. Of course, Mail readers want to offer their sympathies, but at the […]
