In my defence there's a big poster advertising The Hobbit and it has a huge picture of Legolas.

Please don't judge me.

MIL left hers here today. It went straight in the recycling and I'm worried the neighbours might spot it kept the poster though

I got it today as it was free in Waitrose and I like the tv guide.
Haven't read the main paper, just the supplements.

Take the poster out, then have a ritual burning of the paper!

I hate the DM with a vengeance.

But the Saturday one has a good TV section. I read that when I visit my Dads.

I'm deeply ashamed but the Legolas poster is worth the much deserved abuse. wink

Liz jones I has it down to a fine art,yanking a certain type harrumphing mutha chain
She knows exactly the key phrases,what nuance,and all the indignant mums respond
It's the response,the mummy indignation that makes Lj popular with her employer

and even if you are immune to the politics, you are not immune to their shite marketing ploy, which you have fallen for hook, line and sinker, and have now propped up their shit arse wanker newsgroup with your hard earned pennies. grin

trashcanjunkie Sun 01-Dec-13 13:44:08

Yes you are. They are a denizen of wanktwattery and you bloody well know it.

Saw today's effort from Liz Jones in a coffee shop this morning. Why does she hate mothers so much?? It must be exhausting being her and being full of so much venom.

You're one of any on is linked and discussed daily on mn
Surprisingly by folks who claim not to like it

I buy it every now and then. I use the paper to polish the windows.

Mostly I read online when bored, it has interesting photo stories eg. deserted hospitals in America etc.

SteamWisher Sun 01-Dec-13 13:11:08

Not even a picture of Legolas could tempt me. Sorry but you know YABU!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sun 01-Dec-13 13:09:51

Legolas tchgrin

And I could use the paper in the guinea-pigs' cage.
'Tis very absorbant, The Mail/ Mail on Sunday

Morgause Sun 01-Dec-13 12:49:51

But..... but ...... but ..... Legolas grin

I'm immune to their politics, really.

fifi669 Sun 01-Dec-13 12:48:26

I read the DM online .... I think like all papers you know the way they lean and just take it into consideration.

ForalltheSaints Sun 01-Dec-13 12:45:13

Yes I do not think you should have bought it. The Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday are papers of hatred.

Varya Sun 01-Dec-13 12:33:29

Used to buy it but it has become the bringer of horrific and disgusting news in the most sensational and graphic terms possible, too much about so called celebs etc., so to me it is longer worth buying along with most other newspapers, unfortunately so that is not the Sunday pleasure is once might have been to me, sadly : - (

I think there should be a free pass system. Or a costs pass - you have to donate an equivalent amount to the price to a health charity or something that supports immigrants. Maybe Cancer UK, since according to the Mail everything causes cancer!

Don't tempt me <twitches>

I can see the paper shop from here....

Morgause Sun 01-Dec-13 11:54:17

It's a lovely picture Viva <sighs>
