Clicky
I'll let the article do the talking, but needless to say, it's worth a look.

I'm not reading that Mail rag - almost as bad if not worse than the Sun / Mirror etc ;-)

I popped into the local shop on my way to work this morning, and a schoolboy was in purchasing a paper, so yes, I guess people do. (He appeared to be a sports fan after a daily fix of sporting updates. Wink )

Was going to ask if that's a metaphor, but I'm not sure I want to know. Cheesy

It's entirely metaphysical Pierre. Not for the faint hearted.

Re: How much is your 20 pence worth?

I don't think the Express is quite so bad as the Mail - but not far behind.
I generally read the Scotsman [ right of centre Edinburgh paper], Independent, Guardian, Telegraph -
not everyday of course - but maybe once a week.
Also we have an excellent regional paper - The Courier - published by D.C. Thomson in Dundee [ The Beano etc etc ] - it carries a very good mix of local, regional national and international news.
But I tend to read BBC and other news websites for a general overview of the news.

We get the Mail on Sunday specifically for the pantomime style exaggeration of everything, and also 'cause the missus likes to read up on gossip (accepting that its also likely to be exaggerated)
We get the Telegraph on Saturday for some 'proper' reading (used to get the Sunday times, but by then half of the time we might have to read it has already gone - ie Saturday, so we moved to the Telegraph on Saturday so we have two days to read it!)

I follow various different news feeds on my Twitter account (mainly BBC & Guardian) whic are updated frequently with links to all of the news stories after a short introduction.
Very good for when you're on the go.
