Just asking...
not me though (adds hastily).

Faxthatpam Wed 08-May-13 19:43:10

I read it sometimes online because it makes me laugh. It is highly addictive though! And I am thoroughly ashamed of my self.... blush.

I used to read it online until Lucy Meadows' death, now I wouldn't if you paid me. Heartless bastards and bigots.

rufussmum Wed 08-May-13 19:59:24

Bit depressing that so many people do read it then. One of the highest circulation figures so there are a lot of bastards/bigots out there.

Does looking at the sleb pics count?

rufussmum Wed 08-May-13 20:10:43

Sleb pics, 'jobless mothers of five' and Kate Middleton's bump are totally newsworthy imo and much more interesting than all that nasty news/politics stuff.

That paper makes me all stabby so I cannot read it. Even the links people put on here I won't visit as I can't allow myself to give them the traffic.

Hate hate hate that piece of utter shite rag.

Just googled Lucy Meadows and am horrified. This is the dark side which makes me ashamed to admit to reading the sleb nonsense. Will actually rethink my shameful habit now.... [slinks off under a stone].

They attempt 'science articles' and even Daily Mail readers comment stuff like 'what a load of ignorant bollocks'.

Yes, in the Daily Mail, aspirin both causes and prevents cancer. Nice one.

No, complete 100% tossers/wanker>shiteheads.(imo)

'Just asking, not me though'.

The lady doth protest too much.

rufussmum Wed 08-May-13 21:16:05

Innocent until proven guilty.

Nelly000 Wed 08-May-13 21:17:31

I read it.

I'm not a bastard or a bigot.

HollyBerryBush Wed 08-May-13 21:18:00

I love it that no one will admit to it!

I think the DM is MN posters guilty pleasure.

IvorHughJarse Wed 08-May-13 21:23:01

<off topic> Op - are you actually mum to a Rufus?

Yawn4theday Wed 08-May-13 21:25:52

A secret shame.

Should it be top shelf, brown paper cover.

rufussmum Wed 08-May-13 21:26:24

Labelling people as bigots because they choose to read a certain newspaper is, well.....bigotted. Let's have an 'I'm out and I'm proud' thread. Not that I am, of course.

rufussmum Wed 08-May-13 21:27:21

Ivor. Why do you want to know?

Chipstick10 Wed 08-May-13 21:30:19

I read it and actually buy it on Saturday. It's got great articles and I love the mag with it. I buy and read the sun as well.

MIL reads it and she used to give it to me to line the chicken coop. I often used to sit and read it whilst cleaning out the chickens. She also saves articles for me and dh to read.

My Dad has always known I've not liked it. But he's usually just laughed my feelings off as "Guardian reading left wingitis". However - I told him about the Lucy Meadows case and explained everything that happened and how the DM treats trans people.

Haven't been home for a long time but will be interested to see if he still buys it.

amothersplaceisinthewrong Wed 08-May-13 21:43:20

Great Comic, I do buy it occasionally for the royal stories. The paper I can't bear above all others is the Right On Guardian.

IvorHughJarse Wed 08-May-13 21:53:05

I have a Rufus, I am wildly excited that there may be another one with such fabulous taste in names!

Sorry for off-topicness. I don't read the DM though I have been known to peruse the sidebar of shame in my lunch hour...
