@ Brenda in Wales. My father said the only thing you can trust or believe in any newspaper was the Date & the price on the front page. :-D

We used to get the Telegraph when my oH was alive,,but I found it hard to hold and used to get it in a mess which I was always being ribbed about.I liked it ,but the amount of papers that had to go in my recycling bag...we don't have a bin,just a plastic bag,was so heavy with all the pages and mags at weekends that when He died I changed to the Mail
I really liked it,but then went toOz for 3 months and now Im on my own I don't bother ...but do get Mail on Line on my iPad...the only thing I miss is the crossword.
I like certain things in the Mail,but as my dad said years ago..... Don't even believe half you read in newspapers....and he died in 1980,so it was going on then,but do think that the media are more intrusive these days....big brother and all that!
Never liked the Sun ,Star or Mirror.
Everyone to their own likes...wouldn't do for everyone to have the same views .
Why do some folk always have to be right??...can't do with arguments..respect one another and their ways.

I made a comment about "you can tell a Daily Mail reader because they wear swimming costumes on cold days and overcoats in a heatwave". Meant to not be personal, just a little light humour. I thought:-( :-(

Ho hum :-S :-S :-S

Well I read the Mail and have not ventured out in my bikini this month. Like Ann I love the crosswords and puzzles especially in the Sunday edition.

They got the floods right though John!

Yes John but you took the pee out of the reader..not the paper..that's what has caused the furore.

@ John. I am unhappy with your comments and think are totally unacceptable. I do not read the DM but some family members and friends do. I can assure you they do not fall into this category.

I was just agreeing with Trailer Trash. Have noticed over years that Daily Mail (and Express to some degree) always tell us there will be extremes of weather. And it never happens.

I know they have to sell papers in a dwindling market, but....... :-( :-(

Lowering the tone of the conversation, if they cranked up the price of toilet paper, newspapers would have a purpose again ;-)

OK will leave it. John, behave please. Back soon.

Again, Ann, I agree.

I'm more concerned about the muffling of newspapers than which ones people read.

As long as language is not blasphemous there should be no restriction on news - how would we have found out about how MPs are spending our taxes on things such as their duck-houses for instance? They should, as my Dad used to tell me, have kept their noses clean.

Leave it up Ann..it's an interesting thread. Shame to delete because of one member's deliberate goading.

I am just about to go out. Not sure whether to leave this thread up or not if I am not here to monitor remarks like those made by John.

As has been said John, criticize the paper not the reader of it or I will delete this thread. I don't find your remark funny.
