It resurfaces every now and again. I suspect that there's a subtext of "What are my grandchildren talking about/why do I feel they're ignoring me?" about it.

I guess that ties in with it being Easter holidays

"Debby, 45, from Surrey, says: 'I noticed how, eyes glued to the screen, brow furrowed, he was really living the game — it was disturbing to watch"

My God, you mean he was concentrating on a competitive video game?
I'm sure I've seen chess players doing the same.

I've just started playing Far Cry 5. I hope the Mail discover it.

I thought the whole 'evil video games' nonsense had died down but recently there seems to be a bit of a resurgence of it.
I haven't played Far Cry 5, but am I right in thinking that when it was first revealed the antagonist was a cult leader based in the USA, using God and whatever else to spread violence and power, the alt-right had a hissy fit?

Yes, that's right. They ran a petition to have the game banned before release.

It turned out they were wrong. Ubisoft played it safe and it's fairly politically ambiguous. If anything, gun-toting small town, hillbilly type Americans are actually portrayed as the saviours in the game.

The alt-right then started mocking "SJW's" and accusing them of being angry about the game. It was classic projection.

Given Gamergate was one of the original pools from which the alt-right bloomed, and possibly was responsible for the common currency of "SJW", it's not really surprising they weren't keen on shooting Nazis

When your child is a different class to you: Mothers who rose from working-class roots reveal their very complex emotions about their children riding horses and going to private schools.

'Am I middle class?' Mother is accused of 'showing off' after she boasts about £900k house, privately-educated children and ponies - but STILL doesn't think she's posh!

This wouldn't be a problem in Dublin where a pony comes free with a council flat and you don't have to pay nuns and priests to whack your kids.
