Sun Roasts Guardian Poll Tax

This week’s commentariat death match is brought to you courtesy of old enemies. In the money-making redtop corner we have the Sun, in the loss-making blue corner we have the Guardian. Following David Leigh’s crazy poll tax proposal earlier this week, the Sun‘s editorial today took no prisoners:

“Those deluded and arrogant hand-wringers at The Guardian have come up with a bonkers scheme to impose a tax on broadband users to fund money-haemorrhaging publications like their own. We have a more sensible proposal. Why not simply put together a product that excites and engages the British public.”

Touché…

    What a great day it will be, when that sanctimonious waste of wood-pulp, the Grauniad, goes under.

    I’m sure every failing business would just love to tax other people to pay for them.

    Luckily this is bonkers. It also shows how desperate The Guardian are getting.

    If it was not for the BBC and Sky news the Guardian and the Indepenent (anything but independent) would have been dead and buried ;years ago.

    Instead these TV channels give far too much credence to the comments of these two dying newspapers,inevitably on both channels the first newspapers quoted are the Guardian and the Independent. We are also subjecte4d to the ridiculous oponions of Polly Toynbee.

    Let dying newspapers die.

      What do you mean “ridiculous comments”?

      The only thing that that’s ridiculous are vicious Tory cuts ™

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
