Today’s Front Pages

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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.
