    It's this kind of stuff that does my head in.

    Stop funding hate can do one.

    Paperchase need to grow a backbone.

    Stop Funding Hate is a great organisation. I contribute. If we didn't have so much bile (bordering on racism) in our gutter press the world would be a nicer place. Incidentally, I've spent quite a bit of time in hospital waiting rooms recently....it amazes me how many patients (or their carers) pick up the DM. I'm also amazed hospitals provide it, given the DM's stance on EU nurses/doctors, etc.

      Are you familiar with the words quantity and quality? This is a ludicrous argument.

      Yes correct, or did you mean Quantity OR Qualtity? The 2 are quite often correlated.

      Anyway your thread has nothing to do with The Mail as such but yet another thread promoting a far left agenda for media censorship, and by exstention what could be considered open to debate. A small step to "Daily Mail Readers" then another one to "People expressing Daily Mail style Opinions" Its only because the moderators are crap and dont know what they are doing that you and your ilk get away with it.

      After all you dont have a hope in hell of getting the rag shut down so it has to be a coded political attack on other posters on here or trying to create an atmosphere that is genial towards that goal.

      But luckily there are people on here who see what you are up to and happy enough to point it out.

      Harold! I hope you're not calling all Holy Grail readers racist thickos!
      My comment was about the paper and its effects, not the readers. Mind you, the Fail readers I have know differ from Star readers only in terms of the extent of their desire for a daily dose of tabloid tit and bum

      The Star makes no secret of being a comic, unlike The Mail. Being a journalist on the Mail is dirty, soul selling work akin to being a defence solicitor representing someone like Ian Huntley.

      Popular misconception that Branson plays an active role in any of the businesses that carry the Virgin Branding. He doesn't. He just takes the cash. Virgin Trains, Virgin Media, Virgin Airlines etc are all 100% independent of each other and largely independent of him.

      Assigning responsibility for this decision to Branson equates to blaming my 6 yr old daughter for the global financial crash.

      I don't like him either btw...

      Really....the Daily Mail sells ten times as many papers as the Guardian...?

      I never knew that. If true, restores my faith that not everyone is blinkered by left wing shit.
      You can always tell that people are not blinkered by left wing nonsense by the fact that the only Labour leader voted in as PM in the last 40 years is Tony Blair.

      100% true. I can also tell you that the decision to stop stocking the paper on board he trains really wasn’t driven by any campaign or brand alignment drive but for commercial factors.

      Its up to the Mail to behave responsibly, if they do they wont get the wrath of such pressure groups.

      You are advocating and supporting censorship of the press because you don’t want yourself or others to be able to read opinions you disagree with.
      You probably don’t even realise this is what you are doing.
      I cant emphasize enough how mind numbingly ignorant you are.

      Very true but he also likes the odd gimmick and publicity stunt, this reaks of Branson given his and the DMs Brexit views and isn't something you would expect to come from the boardroom.

      Yes. But once again this and the sales figures for right wing tabloids 'shows' that it is the right wing nonsense that holds sway. Odd that you broflakes think that the small circulation 'left wing' newspapers influence the preumably gullable whereas the mass sale right wing tabloids presumably have no influence. Strange indeed.
