Liberals. Before the media was run by liberals, not lefties. It is an important distinction comrade!

Not to the moonbats who constantly push that narrative; leftists, liberals, Marxists, Metropolitan elite, they're interchangeable.

I actually spent most of my childhood in Blackley and that's a good article. I'm generally wary of the white working class framing - it seems to be the only way class issues can get a hearing in the mainstream media - and Blackley is a multiracial area (albeit not as multiracial as nearby Crumpsall or Cheetham Hill) but otherwise a very interesting piece. And this can't be repeated often enough:
Owen Jones, in his marvellous book Chavs, (“chav” is the derogatory British term for the white working class) tackles the notion that poor people milk the state more than the rich do. Some updated statistics:

• Total cost of Jobseekers’ Allowance in 2011/2012: £4.91bn.

• Total taxpayers’ support for British banks peaked after the banking meltdown at £1.2 trillion.

• Total overpayment of benefits due to fraud and error in 2013/2014: £3.3bn, estimates the government. Meanwhile underpayments due to fraud and error totalled £1.4bn. The net sum, £1.9bn, is just over 1 per cent of British benefit spending.

• Even if this is a massive underestimate, and the real cost of benefits fraud is three times higher, it would still be just one-sixth of the sum lost in unpaid or avoided taxes in 2011/2012, by the government’s own estimate.

• That estimate doesn’t take into account the puny British tax bills of companies such as Starbucks, Amazon and Google, or of resident non-domiciled billionaires.

Pitiful leader today about the reshuffle regurgitating Gove crap about giving headteachers real autonomy- which theyve had for 25 years. Much of his unpopularity down to the teaching unions, apparently, who are more influential than anyone thought in that case.

The FT until recently employed Chris Cook, about the only journo on a rightwing paper who wasn't dazzeled by Gove.

Again, poor journalism from the Financial Times (which explains why they backed Theresa May in the last elections: https://www.ft.com/content/67949e4a-45e ... b4dd6296b8).

It asserts that Denmark (in ERM II but using Danish krone), Northern Cyprus (unrecognised country using Turkish Lira) and Kaliningrad Oblast (part of Russia using Russian ruble) are a part of the Eurozone.

Slovakia remains unnamed.

Somehow the UK is not even contoured on the map.

So the FT won newspaper of the year.

Here is the Daily Mail congratulating them:

The local McColl's gives the M*il away around here. They've given up asking me if I'd like one, for some strange reason.
