Meanwhile, the Tories have announced workplace reforms for those in the so-called 'gig' economy:

Needless to say, there are BTL comments saying "well, the EU didn't protect us from that, did it, eh?! EH?!"

For all the ire directed at the Guardian, it's noticeable that there's a fair higher % of decent BTL commentators than on the BBC, Times, etc. This isn't a matter of opinion, more the quality of posting.

The BBC is especially dire.

Guardian comments used to be a lot better, but acquired a load of trolls about the same time as the Telegraph implemented its paywall.

Not just arseholes, cheap arseholes.

Conservative home comment on Gatwick Drones.

An insight into the fractal unhingedness of the conservative thinker:

If too long I'll summarise.
1. Bloody townies don't know how to use a shotgun.
2. Remoaners!!!
3. People without roots in this country (Seems to be code for "Darkies").
