Mail on Sunday: Not as bad as the Mail

close

Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

‘We’re, um, not as bad as the Mail, ‘ he says, ‘We’re the Mail on Sunday, um, we’d take, um, a different tack…’

Impressive, even for a Mail hack. It’s part of this story, in which a woman who survived the King’s Cross explosion explains how she dealt with an MoS journalist hoping to persuade her to have a baby after the bombs, or at the very least a birthday. It is well worth reading, not only for the humour, but also to see the true nature of the Mail group (via).
