The most despicable and reprehensible excesses of British newspaper "reporting".


 The Daily Mail exceeds all limits of decency and responsible news coverage.

The "vile" Daily Mail.



 This front page, taken from today's Daily Mail, rates amongst the most despicable and reprehensible excesses of British newspaper "reporting", standing alongside and arguably exceeding the Hillsborough coverage by the Sun. For any "Newspaper" to suggest that a criminal act of such evil motivation and tragic outcome, is a consequence of a welfare state established to protect the health and well-being of its citizens, especially those in financial or social need, is an insult to to the ideal of the system and every single person reliant on it. True there are those people, such as Mick Philpott who abuse the system, but that does not excuse or justify the warped logic of the Daily Mail to imply that all benefit claimants are of the same inclination.
The Daily Mail abuses its position to make snide political points, as their contribution to the on going right wing demonisation of anyone and everyone who is or will be claiming benefits of any description during these times of austerity.
Describing this case as a "product of welfare UK" is a shameful act of political bias.  Lord Rothermere sinks to the lowest levels of depravity with this "story" and should be condemned by all thinking people.
