Re: Is the Scottish Express even worse than the Mail?

Yes, although its not a million miles from stories of "punks" tying fireworks to cats tails and setting them off when I was a youngster.

Talking of tabloids, here is today's Daily Express. It's a classic. http://up.metropol247.co.uk/Chie/15421626.jpg It seems to me it's partly a case of tabloids playing a game of Chinese whispers (also know as 'lazy journalism'), where they initially get their information from each other, instead of...

Re: Are the Tories finished before they start?

The Conservative party could do with banning him from appearing on HIGNFY (unless he's planning to become the next London mayor). In past appearances he's joked about the expense system being great before having to u-turn a couple weeks later. Also lets not forget he said "If you read that Miss Cali...

Some examples... - "w...
