The Daily Mail Song and Melanie Phillips
I am constantly warning my charges to be selective about what they:
as far as newspapers are concerned. This sort of proves my point. If you aren't British - and even if you are - never try to use the Daily Mail to win an argument.
As a case in point I give you the redoubtable Melanie Phillips, "journalist", from yesterday's edition I find this intersting, not so much because of her editorial style which is as predictable as ever, but because, judging by the on-line comments, she really missed the public mood. When the readers of the Daily Fail turn on a neo-con "journalist" in this way, the end of the world (at least as we know it) must be nigh.
