Eeek,
To get back to the tenor of my earlier post, the reason you and others hate the Mail is because of it's success in proselytizing the Right of the argument. If it makes mistakes (rather than lies) then it will normally admit that. What it does very successfully is to give a voice to those who will not demonstrate or make a great noise, those who are quickly shut up and ignored on phone-ins and Question Time. What it said about Moseley in 1934 has nothing to say about what it says now, that was a period of history generally disgraced by appeasement.

Daily Mail mistake #1 today - "[Conservative MP forChatham & Aylesford] Tracey Crouch ... [was] born to a single mother and brought up on a council estate in Carlisle ..." h++p://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-1343515/Fiery-Cameron-unleashes-inner-Flashman-Tendency.html#ixzz19zkdmIsS

No, she was born and brought up in Folkestone and he her mother not a single mum - h++p://twitter.com/#!/tracey_crouch/status/21884787153174528

Queequeg do you think we will see a correction from the "well-researched" Mail for this?

queequeg - You mention appeasement in your post. How many millions of lives have been lost through the policy of appeasement? The British Foreign Office being one of the most responsible for those deaths over the last 100 hundred years or so. The Middle East from the Great War, then Germany in the 30's and almost certainly the African continent would be a much better place today had the various British Governments of the day, with the connivance of the USA and the UN not followed a policy of appeasement.

QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
