The Daily Mail: the last bastion of middle class conservatism. The paper of Brexit, enemies of the people, Liz Jones, Richard Littlejohn, you couldn’t make it up, health and safety, political correctness gone mad, traditional moral values (with a website that ignores all of them), headlines WITH random CAPITALISED words for EMPHASIS, blue passports, immigrants, Diana, EU gravy trains, 32 page picture pullouts about the royals and a general feeling that this country is going to the dogs and things were much better in the old days.
As its editor Paul Dacre (a man so fond of the word c**t that his morning meetings are allegedly referred to as ‘The Vagina Monologues’) gets older, it seems he’s getting even more terrified about the modern world, so much so that he appears to have completely lost the plot with the latest Daily Mail front page, run in the wake of the London terrorist attack.
Just look at the state of this:
That’s right ladies and gentlemen. According to the Daily Mail it’s all Google’s fault.
People on Twitter were not slow to voice their opinion on it, and point out some, ahem, ever-so-slight flaws in this ‘revelation’:
That can't be tomorrow's Daily Mail front page. Even they can't be that stupid.— Staedtler (@Staedtler) March 23, 2017
2mw's Daily Mail wins 'Most Batshit Crazy Mail Front Page Ever' award. The stupidity of it is staggering. Dacre's outdone himself.— Nick Norton (@OnlyForKoolKids) March 23, 2017
Still waiting for the reveal that the Daily Mail front page is a Comic Relief skit.— Chris Nope (@chrs00) March 24, 2017
Imagine needing to look up how to drive at people.
The "it took two minutes" is the real satire in that front page, though. Who the hell spends two minutes on a Google search?— Chris Nope (@chrs00) March 24, 2017
If it's not in the first three results of page 1 you give up. That's the fucking rule.— Chris Nope (@chrs00) March 24, 2017
Still, at least their readers agreed with the, surely-unarguably nice idea to hold a vigil in Trafalgar Square for the victims of the attack?
