New Page : Grauniad Comment

These are good times to be an expat worker. You get the perks (for example not living in a bankrupt part of the world) but also due to the internet you can keep abreast of events at home.

For example you can look at the comment page of the Grauniad to find out what you should be thinking if you want to be right on. You see that it is ok to be offensive and insulting as long as you are insulting the right people.

You can also play the “Comment is Free, Daily Mail drinking game”. Take turns reading a users comment, take 1 shot for every mention of the Daily Mail (you will be plastered in no time and in A&E being stomach pumped as long as you play the game before the evil tories have killed the NHS and fed it to their evil banker friends in the city).

Of course the Daily Mail is far worse, that goes without saying (although is constantly being said). Unless of course you think the comments that pretend to be highbrow and accurate are possibly as dangerous than those that are obviously way out there…

Polly Toynbee

I wondered how every week Polly Toynbee of the Gruaniad Newspaper (and Tuscany) could get away with writing essentially the same article every single week with a different headline;

1) Ed Milliband is great and making the Labour party so super

2) We need to piss away more money to deal with the problems of having pissed so much money already

3) Conservatives are evil

I have since realised based on the name and the repetition that she is indeed a parrot

The Grauniad

Have worked out how the Guardian can be so much up its own arse. It is actually like a Klein bottle which has no inside or outside.

There are so many sordid parts of the UK media. In my opinion that would be the Murdoch press, obviously the Daily Mail. Easy targets but one I particularly hate is the Grauniad. ( I have given the link as everyone is free to make up their own mind, I know some of the opinions in it drive people almost orgasmic with joy and agreement).

It is not because generally the sordid rag has a different political view to me (although I notice those with alternative political views hate other papers solely for this reason). In fact I prefer The Independant despite the time it takes to download any article on a slow connection speed.

Anyway amongst my many things I have against it are…

1) The exceedingly poor taste 9/11 coverage that friends of mine at the time found truly offensive

2) Hypocrisy, I (in common with the Guardian opinion writers) could not see how banks could pay bonuses to their CEOs while making a loss. Likewise I cannot see how when the Guardian Media Group made a  £171,000,000 loss they paid thier CEO a £143,000 bonus.

3) As if Wastebook isnt evil enough I now accidently click on links to Guardian articles then on my wall everyone in the world can see I am reading the Guardian. I then have to disinfect myself.
