Tabloid heaven

The secret to running a mid-market British tabloid is quite simple.

1. Foreigners are evil.
2. Women should be made to feel bad about themselves under a thin covering of empathy.
3. Everything was better in the past.
4. Young people are murderers.

Today's Daily Express front page is therefore the ne plus ultra of tabloid journalism. After this, there's nowhere to go. Other than 'Princess Diana Cures Cancer From Beyond The Grave'. It won't be long now.

(PS: Britons aren't demanding national service, and crime rates have been falling for years).

And of course that they are always Fighting for Britain, against Red Tape etc etc. Point well made!
