Today’s Front Pages

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 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 12 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  • Factual information might be outdated.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.

The stark contrasts of the front pages caught my eye today.

By far the ‘best’ front page today is the Indy’s, continuing their tradition of poster-style front pages (of which I am a big fan):

The Sun and The Star both have different takes on the disaster, with the sun leading on Charlie Dimmock’s mother, and the Star just about managing to squeeze in a headline about the silence below a scantily clad ‘Jen’.

Rather than leading on the biggest natural disaster in history, the apparently respectable Mail lead on… Council Tax.

I suppose I should be glad it wasn’t their new favourite: gypsies.
