Sir Humphrey:: Prime Minister, what about the people who read The Sun?

Bernard: Sun readers don't care who runs the country, as long as she's got big tits.

The saying used to be that the Telegraph was read by the people that used to run the country.

That’s right. Gradually sold it off as the Mail was more profitable at the time(1930s).
Mirror didn’t really become a Labour paper though till much later.

I wouldn't wipe my arse with the Express.
I have to step in.

I worked at The Express for a year and I'd just like to confirm it's a pile of wank.

Funnily enough in the same building was the Daily Star who employed about a 1/3 of The Express but outsold them. They were quite funny, a bunch of hardened hacks who'd seen it all and were just making a comic and they knew it, job down by lunchtime and down the pub. The Express was full of people so up their own arses you wouldn't believe.

After working there I honestly don't think I ever paid to look at a tabloid again.

Agree with the comments about the execrable dailies express but it’s views are echoed by the equally execrable talk radio they the sun mail telegraph etc are nothing but far right propaganda sheets Was in London yesterday great atmosphere great speech by Jeremy and they all sung for him was that reported oh no. These kids are misguided they should have been at school, discipline the teachers blah blah at the same time twodinosaurs trump and the Aussie pm met to agree to more fossil based mining and fracking both heavily supported by vile scumbag murdoch

Some of the utter tripe I see on the front pages of the like of that paper, The Mail, Express and Telegraph recently is actually very concerning when you look at the absolute mess we are in as a country. You only have to listen to talk radio stations or read these boards to realise some fall for their malicious and prejudice bulls*it hook line and sinker.
The other way to look at it is that the media also sell back our tribal prejudices to us. The misinformation, partizan coverage and character assassination going on is a chicken and egg situation between media and the public behaviour. There's just no fair play in debate anymore, anywhere.

Did you get to collect the image back catalogue from the associated magazines like an old boss of mine who used to work there.

Seems to be an ongoing vendetta against RNLI from earlier this year.

Pretty sure most those claiming to stop their donations don't donate anyway.
