Comparative rather than combative.
I've noticed many times that the Mail's version of events do not always match how it is presented in the local newspaper that often gives a more detailed and probably more accurate background to the story.
In this example the story is headlined 'Parkinson's medication turned me into gambling gay sex thief, says 51-year-old married father' (a Frenchman) and then refers to a more local example:It is not the first case of its kind. In 2010 former IT manager Peter Shepherd, then 60, ended up in court after he underwent an astonishing personality change when prescribed Cabergoline by his GP in 2001. Mr Shephard told how he became a sex-crazed transvestite after taking Cabergoline, also a Parkinson’s disease drug, and also blew £400,000 on a luxury lifestyle.
His local paper puts it in perspective, he was using the side effect of a drug to explain to the beak why he defrauded Take That fans* in a ticket scam.
