Guardian going bankrupt

No doubt this will please more than a few on here - despite it being arguably the most genuinely pro-forces newspapers in the UK, delivering some excellent positive coverage of British troops in Afghanistan.

Indeed. But don't let the facts get in the way of one of arrse's blind spots.

Personally I'd lobotomise and sterilise all avowed Mail readers and send the national productivity gains to the Guardian fighting fund.

Its ironic, The Manchester Guardian moves to London to be where the action is. The BBC moves to Manchester to be near who knows what.

If The Guardian does go tits up, where will the BBC and all the council hug a tree depts recruit from?

They tried to make it more popular by filling it with lifestyle crap that costs a fortune to print, along with Polly Filler and Phil Space columns with middle-class bellends wittering about their nugatory lives, and having 'interns' write a lot of the news by scavenging off the internet. The quality of the writing really is atrocious.

The other day they had a report on a man who had circulated on the internet, the fact that his wife's boss had been strumping her. Reading the report, it was clear that there was a trial going on, but the writer neglected to mention whether it was civil or criminal, who was on trial, what was at issue and what the charges were if any.

If they binned the lifestyle balls and the celebrity columnists, had proper news reports and went back to reflecting a variety of views on the comment, it might be worth reading again. But like their chums in the Labour party, their only solution to a problem has been to chuck money at it broadcast in the hope that it might do some good.

As its the BBC I'd suggest the gay village.

If the Guardian goes under then the only non Tory bought and paid for mainsteam paper remaining will be the Daily Mirror.

Anyone who thinks that would be a good thing is a cock.

Amen. The only UK newspaper that I'd actually pay to read online.

Call me old-fashioned but I've suddenly come over all C. P. Snow. I don't value a paper for positive coverage, I value it for accurate coverage - even if it's not what I want to hear.

Guardian is a great source of information.
It's a great source of cartoons but little else as it morphs into the Morning Star. I'll miss Steve Bell's stuff and Polly's hypocrisy is always good for a laugh if you don't take her too seriously.

The Guardian's been losing heavily for years - over £40 million in the last four years alone as public sector job ads go online and metro lefties desert it in droves. The Tory government's stated policy of prohibiting indirect subsidies for "friendly" newspapers by forcing all government job ads to go online should see The Grun dead and buried before long.

Their problem is that pretentious, left-wing twats can recognise pretentious, left wing twattery when they see it. The Grun seeks to appeal to the intelligent, well educated middle classes who hold left wing views while spouting the kind of self indulgent crap that would make the editor of the Daily Mail blush if it was right wing crap.

Polly Toynbee is a liability. Whether complaining about homelessness while owning three houses, complaining about "excessive pay" while taking home over £100 grand a year for writing a short essay once a week or complaining about global warming while LearJetting to her place in Tuscany, Polly is the epitome of the champaign socialist. Even lefties don't like being lectured by hypocrites like Polly.

A few highlights from today's edition:-

PUBLIC SECTOR STRIKES WILL BRING THE COUNTRY TO ITS KNEES
No they wont. Should I turn gay on 30 June, I'll be able to wait a day before phoning the council's LGBT outreach co-ordinator for advice on the 24 hour coming out hotline.

GET YOUR HAIR CUT LADDIE ......
.... constitutes racism if said to a black schoolboy. No it isn't, and even lefties are getting fed up with PC crap like this.

DISABLED WILL BE LIVING ON THE STREETS ....
... if housing benefit is cut to "only" £400 a week. No they wont. They'll just have to find somewhere cheaper to live.

OBAMA
Son of God

OSAMA
Human rights infringed

ARTHUR SCARGILL
Misunderstood genius.

SARAH PALIN EMAILS ....
.... contain a few spelling mistakes hence she is unfit to run for President.

In a nutshell, The Guardian is an insult to the intelligence of its readers.
