A Wee Silly Look at Guardian Readers

Oh yes, the backlash is great. The people who defended Laurie Penny when he wrote that article were brilliant (hint: it was Laurie Penny and her pal). She is a ******* gasbag and a half though, eh? I mean, I consider myself fairly left wing on many matters but there's a difference between being a bit of a sympathiser and an utter shite-spouting twat.

Penny's blog bio btw:

Laurie Penny, 25, journalist, author, feminist, socialist, utopian, general reprobate and troublemaker. Lives in a little hovel room somewhere in London, mainly eating toast and trying to set the world to rights. Drinks too much tea. Has still not managed to quit smoking. Regular writer for New Statesman, The Guardian and The Independent.

Funny thing is, I'm beginning to get more enraged when I read the Guardian these days than I do reading the Daily Mail.

I may as well dust this one off - Who reads which papers:

* The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country;
* The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country;
* The Times is read by people who actually do run the country;
* The Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country;
* The Financial Times is read by people who own the country;
* The Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country;
* And the Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it already is.
* Sun readers don't care who runs the country, as long as she's got big tits.

Quality site. Never heard of it before we should have a list of decent stuff found on the web (non porn) because after ARRSE and a couple of other things the interweb is shite.

He missed distressed Democrats, unlike most Brit papers The Guardian has one of the biggest online readerships across the pond.

Go figure, you could put it down to the fluffy, vapid Guardian competing rather well with the far more sober and pathologically balanced liberal US press or it might just be gay men in need of veggie quiche recipes and with a fixation on Nick Clegg's arse.

The overseas readership of the Guardian is as nothing compared with that of the Mail. The Mail is about to overtake the New York Times as the most popular online newspaper in the world. How mental is that?

Doesn`t say much for the New york Times, just how bad can it be?

Quite agree with the bit about "...usually the least worst.." and "...covers everything from sofa to toaster..." and that's about it, in fairness.

p.s. Carmen, the clue is in the title you daft flange.

Anybody remember this shot in the foot from the paper that lost £33m in 2010?

[h=4]Clark County[/h]In August 2004, for the US presidential election, the daily Guardian G2 supplement launched an experimental letter-writing campaign in Clark County, Ohio, an average-sized county in a swing state. G2 editor Ian Katz bought a voter list from the county for $25 and asked readers to write to people listed as undecided in the election, giving them an impression of the international view and the importance of voting against US President George W. Bush. The paper scrapped "Operation Clark County" on 21 October 2004 after first publishing a column of complaints from Bush supporters about the campaign under the headline "Dear Limey assholes". The public backlash against the campaign likely contributed to Bush's victory in Clark County.


Personally I'd go further and say the stupid patronising bastards were a major contributor to the Bush campaign all across the USA. I'm ******* sure if a bunch of wet Septics wrote to UK citizens saying "You must vote for (whoever)" my immediate reaction would be to vote for his opponent.

Those who are bad-mouthing the Daily Telegraph are presumably doing so to demonstrate that they are really good liberals, in fact Guardianstas manques. Or Indy readers if there are any (xword is good though).

I used to be a Telegraph reader, until they sacked most of the proper journalists and replaced them with illiterate teenage American interns, filling the remaining space with badly-rewritten PR press releases.
