A Wee Silly Look at Guardian Readers

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by Your_Mums_Pal, Nov 24, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ay up,

    just thought some of you would enjoy this.

    It's just from a small fledgling blog thing I read from time to time on the internet, a mate of mine writes for them but I like what this Nick Bryans bloke writes and had a chuckle here.

  2. Funny and pretty much on the nail.

  3. 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.
     
  4. ^ try reading the sun instead. From what I've seen it's for winners.
     
  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Inspired description:

    "The Telegraph these days resembles nothing more than the recorded utterances from a 1920′s Billiard Room."
     
  9. That is classic. Surely not genuine?
    "Carmen", for such a sophisticated person, has an odd relationship with punctuation and grammar.

  10. 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.
     
  11. 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?

  12. Doesn`t say much for the New york Times, just how bad can it be?
     
  13. Imagine being trapped in a lift for a week with the equality and diversity committee from a large city council.
