The Daily Mail appears to enjoy nothing more than attempting to whip up vitriol and bile amongst its 'readership' against various elements of our society; their targets are many, but here's a few examples... they despise anyone claiming benefits (all workshy scroungers, according to the DM), Erwp (Europe) and the EU, and anyone working in the public sector (feckless, workshy pen-pushers with platinum-plated pensions, again according to the DM). Articles are usually completely one-sided, and any inconvenient facts are ignored in pursuit of their own right-wing agenda (I'm not even sure which political party they endorse, as they enjoy bashing the Tories too). There's plenty of the usual celebrity non-story nonsense, and the DM take a great delight in pointing out any such celebrities who may, God forbid, be a little overweight/ underweight. Unfortunately, I understand that this hateful excuse for journalism has a large readership, which is actually even more depressing than having the misfortune to read this drivel of a newspaper in the first place.
