Dan wrote:An editorial has appeared stating that any MP who is pro-Remain or simply wants the ability to scrutinize the terms of whatever deal the Government might get in Parliament should be "locked in the Tower of London for 28 days" and it ended with a threat saying that anybody who subverts the "People's Revolution" must "get what's coming to them".

This is a threat, an incitement to violence and completely unacceptable. Their readership is "excitable" as it is and considering that an MP was murdered by a man who gave his name in court as "death to traitors, freedom for Britain", the fact that this paper has posted an editorial like this should not be allowed to go unpunished. There's not really a low it won't go to.
Whilst the government interfering in private business in any sense is Soviet!!!

Putting Dacre to shame...

WATCH: Sexy presenter left red-faced after her CAMEL TOE steals limelight on family show
HER segment included an interview with a masseuse, however it is unlikely anyone was listening to what presenter Andrea Serna was saying thanks to her embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.

I think it was TV Tropes that described the Express as "The Daily Mail's little brother, off its meds". I also think Charlie Brooker had a point that there seems to be an entire niche of 'news' based on the assumption that millions of people are hanging on the edge of their sofas eagerly awaiting the slightest glimmer of fap material.

Yes. It reminds me of how porn mags (and not even your top shelf art pamphlets, but the likes of Zoo and Nuts) used to make a great deal out of having nude pics of whatever actress, just for it to turn out to be a grainy screengrab from some art house film where they took their top off, while the rest of the magazine would be filled with models in their bare scuddies.

EUROPE is on the brink of war as Turkey gathers fleets of boats to ship 3,000 migrants a day to Greece in retaliation over the European Union's (EU) vote to freeze accession talks.

BBC Brexit bias EXPOSED: Flagship programmes under-representing anti-EU views for DECADES

Read more: https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics ... referendum
BBC flagship news programmes have under-represented anti-Brussels views for decades, a report published by a leading social policy think tank claimed last night.

In-depth analysis of broadcasting output since 1999 based on monitoring by the watchdog News-Watch found Euro-sceptic voices were "marginalised" by the corporation.

And the alleged bias has continued following the national referendum vote to quit the EU in 2016, the report said.

"The clear preference of a large section of the population for withdrawal, and the reasons for so many people taking this stance, have been continually under-represented in the news coverage of the BBC," the report said.
David Keighley and Andrew Jubb, the authors of the report, said: “When opinion in favour of leaving the EU has featured, the editorial approach has – at the expense of exploring withdrawal itself – tended heavily towards discrediting and denigrating opposition to the EU as xenophobic, and to cast those who supported it as incompetent and venal.

“The overview provided here is a shocking indictment of the BBC’s failure to achieve impartiality, and in particular to incorporate the views of those who desired to leave the EU into its news output. Despite frequent requests to the Chairman and Director General of the BBC from a cross-party group of MPs concerned about BBC bias, the Corporation has been unable to provide a single programme that has examined the opportunities of Brexit. And we cannot find one either.

“The corporation is impervious to all complaints in this domain. It may well be that in the face of this lofty intransigence, something more radical – such as a Judicial Review of the complaints process – might be the only way forward.”

A very interesting piece in the Guardian today:

Daily Express editor calls its front pages 'downright offensive'
https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/ ... -offensive
Gary Jones, who took over at the newspaper last month, said he was unhappy with some of its previous coverage and would be looking to change the tone of the Express.

“Each and every editor has a responsibility for every single word that’s published in a newspaper,” he told the home affairs select committee, which is investigating the treatment of minority groups in print media.

“Cumulatively, some of the headlines that have appeared in the past have created an Islamophobic sentiment which I find uncomfortable,” said Jones, who is also the editor of the Sunday Express.

“It is my responsibility to ensure content is accurate and newspapers don’t look at stereotypical views that may or may not be around in the general public. I should be held to account and be answerable.”

Looking more desperate by the day.
Donald Trump is relying on an unlikely media outlet to back his claim that he is the legitimate winner of the US presidential election: the Sunday Express.

The outgoing president tweeted on Sunday that the “best pollster in Britain wrote this morning that this was clearly a stolen election”, quoting a claim made on Fox News by former Republican politician Newt Gingrich.

Trump’s statement that the “best pollster in Britain” was backing his claims of ballot fraud baffled many people in the UK polling industry, as they attempted to work out which company was claiming that the election had been stolen.

In reality, it appears the original source of the claim was a column written in the UK’s Sunday Express by Patrick Basham, a Washington DC-based individual who runs the relatively obscure Democracy Institute thinktank. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/202 ... TXCgu2sghI
