    Classic Mail headline

    Posted by crumpsall on 29/9/2022, 15:19:01

    Ventured onto the Mail online site to see what they had to say about Truss and her radio carcrash this morning. This headline was just below the main stories (they led with details of HRHs death certificate)....

    Student weighing 24 stone denies forcing smaller man to have sex saying she is too 'lazy' to be on top for 15 minutes and by the time she returned to bed after checking she hadn't burned her onion rings he was asleep 

    You don't get incisive quality journalism like that in the Guraniad!🤣

              What do you mean by that? It has the second largest online readership in the UK, after the Mail - which, as this post indicates, I also look at.

              If you're trying to make a point, you'll need to try a heck of a lot harder...if you're able to, that is.

                    My old mum used to read the Mail and developed a really negative attitude towards the world. Always moaning. I persuaded her to switch to the i (largely by pointing out how cheap it was) and her attitude soon became more positive. Which really represented her personality much better, bless her memory.

                    And I've heard similar from others: it really is a poisonously negative rag (that's not about its politics as such, more the editorial philosophy. The less said about the reader comments, however, the better. They're an insult to the gutter!)

                      I read it although I do not believe much of what they say. I have a very positive attitude despite my choice of paper. I just enjoy the general knowledge crossword and the sport is good, even though they rarely mention the hatters. There are not many other papers that I trust either. However, I do read a lot of columns on line.

                      They pushed for Brexit which I voted against and they pushed for Truss and I would have preferred Sunak out of a bad bunch.

                        Yes, my old mum enjoyed the crossword too.

                        I prefer the Guardian's quick, cryptic and prize options which you can do online. I used to enjoy the Telegraph crossword too: always good to try your wits against a wide range of setters.

                        I'm a cryptic rather than general knowledge fan though.

                          I buy the Telegraph on saturdays just for the cryptic crossword. There is something about having an actual newspaper folded in 4 on your lap. My record is 35 minutes, but I feel a bit cheated when they're easier. The obituaries page is usually quite interesting.

                            Absolutely right about having a physical newspaper for the crossword SP. One of the Manchester area Hatters (a poster on here) is a Telegraph man and he also times himself: his record a remarkable 28 or so minutes I believe - he does it online, often in the middle of the night and sometimes sends a WhatsApp message in the early hours with his time!

                            Marvellous for the grey matter, a cryptic. And as you say, always a bit of a let down when it's too easy. Or is polluted with General Knowledge clues and answers.

                            Speaking of obituaries, I took a friend's dog out for several walks in a redundant cemetery in Cambridge a couple of weeks ago. I'm sure I never used to take such note of how old the deceased were...

                              Ah, reading old tombstones is always interesting, albeit sometimes sad when the deceased died young. It's also interesting to see how many lived to a ripe old age. In my family, the older generations seemed to live longer than the more recent, which is directly related to them moving from country to town - my gt grandfather who moved to Hightown around 1865 died at 65 (tuberculosis), whereas his grandfather died in rural Herts at 93 (general decay).

                                General decay...like it! I see that HRH's official cause of death was 'old age'. How nice that is.

                                  In 1853, she'd have been amongst the ranks of the generally decayed.

                                  Old death certificates are interesting in that they reflect the parlance of the times. One of my Gt Gt Grandmothers was 83 when she died in 1882 of "softness of the brain". Presumably Altzheimers.

                                    Do you find that the difficulty or otherwise of the cryptic crossword changes with the setter?


                                    The saddest tombstone I've ever seen was one recording a whole family; all the children had died of chicken pox within a few weeks of each othe, the father had died in an accident, the mother died shortly after the children, and the last person to die was a the grandmother in her nineties.

                                        I'd agree with that. I did one a couple of weeks ago in well under an hour - it contained nine anagrams. I prefer clues that are crypto riddles. In last Saturday's 4 down was "Experimental glassware? Try underground. (4,4)"*

                                  To be honest I don't understand any of it.

                                  My old man ( gone now ) was an avid sun reader,I've always thought growing up that if you live life as opposite as possible to that papers morals you will be a lot more content and happy.

                                  I find it disturbing to see the comments as a poster said above seems to be all angry EDL types in the Mail,the paper seems to want it's readers to be angry and bitter for whatever reason.
