The Daily Mail fearlessly exposes the secret language that paedophiles are using to tempt your children into unspeakable acts. Or, perhaps it was a slow news day and a lazy journalist just decided it was time for another “dangers of the internet” story. Oh, I know there are real dangers out there, and children do… Continue reading “The Chatroom Language that Spells Danger for Your Child”
On Monday, Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre gave a speech where he ranted about the “cultural Marxism” of the BBC. He was, of course, pretty much completely wrong. And today we have a well-written piece by Lance Price pointing out many of Dacre’s errors. And as a bonus, he does it by having a little… Continue reading BBC Bias?
It’s really not surprising that the god-fearing Daily Mail has taken this approach to the BA “cross-banning” story. And it was obvious that they would side with the Archbishop of York. But what I do find surprising is that they feel the need to point out that Dr Sentamu is Ugandan. I’ve thought about it… Continue reading Nonsense

Segments between programmes from 7 October will feature kites,… Continue reading Media Bias
Oh this has made my day. The Post Office have announced a new scheme whereby people will be able to pay for postage online and print out postage labels to stick onto letters and parcels. Just like the franked mail that companies have been sending out for years or the stickers that get printed for… Continue reading Off With Her Head
I should really know better than to read Richard Littlejohn’s rants, but they were discussing this piece over on Daily Mail Watch so I was drawn in and now my blood is boiling. In this article, Littlejohn’s subject is the general ghastliness of Britain and how it’s driving many of its finest citizens (i.e. Daily… Continue reading Reading Richard Littlejohn
Two nicely contrasting stories in today’s papers about members of politicians’ families. Firstly, theguardian has used the freedom of information act to get lots of good dirt on how Mark Thatcher abused the fact that his mother was Prime Minister. This is, of course, exactly how the freedom of information act should be used. And… Continue reading Politicians’ Families
