Question is Crabcakes. Should the name of the forum be changed to reflect this loophole? You seem to have a fair bit of venom in the tank should the opportunity ever arise. I never said I was a fan of the Express. Never even bought a copy.
If they are splitting away from the crowd and carving out a new niche I think it shows at least a fair bit of bravery and courage.
If it was just a cost saving exercise then why make such a fuss about it. They could continue to indulge in churnalisim for as long as there were hours in the day without a front-page whiteout.
Well it's not my forum to change the name of, but I suspect not because the point of the forum is (as I understand it) to point out the hypocrisy, bile and bullshit in the Mail. Therefore although there's an Express subforum, given the Mail still leads the way with hypocrisy, bile and bullshit I can't see the Express coming out with anything, be it a pull-out guide to ill-advised xenophobia or a 1:1 scale map of rockall, being any reason to change it.
And they're not doing anything new at all, as has been already pointed out. They're just rehashing what they've frequently said before in a tired attempt to get a few more readers. Or more likely try and stop a few more leaving. How is repeating yourself and asking your readers to pay to read that repetition and well-worn rhetoric (rather than, say, news) brave or courageous? And white front page? No photos. No paying for reporting. Cheapy cheapy.
For someone so cynical about the EU and able to read between the lines of Telegraph opinion pieces, you seem remarkably unable to apply any of that same cynicism or apparent insight elsewhere.
