There's been something I've been meaning to say for ages now about the Express 'Have Your Say' section, but haven't got round to it - probably because it's something a bit nice.
For quite some time, the Express has successfully avoided asking 'How much do you hate foreigners and immigration' style questions that used to be the staple over there at one point. Fair play to them. Well done, the Daily Express.
Of course, they've been replaced with different types of question that ask 'How much of a moron is Gordon Brown?', 'Does Gordon Brown smell of dirty bums?' and 'Is Gordon Brown's mum a slapper?' but you can't have everything.
For some reason, the Express seems to hate the police too. I headed over to 'SHOULD POLICE SPEND MORE TIME FIGHTING CRIME?' to find out why. The question is apparently based on the story about a man who was fined for dropping a tenner. The most recent reply says:
anything that brings in a fixed penalty,contributes to their job justification.But what is crime these days,the police the CPS ,courts and judges all work together ensuring the real criminals are out on the streets ASP ensuring their job CREATION SCHEME has a continual flow,"why bite the hand that feeds you", one BIG CIRCUS,I have as much faith in our law as I have in MP,sThat's the sort of conspiracy theory I miss, staying away from the Express. The police are deliberately working to ensure that real criminals are on the streets to justify their existence. Sometimes you can try to be nice to someone and treat their opinions with respect, but it's quicker to just say, 'sorry mate, that's just stupid!' and make funny faces at them. Preferably emphasising the 'stupid' so much that your voice distorts and your face goes a bit red.
Anyway, well done the Daily Express for stopping the practice of adding 'Please enter your racist BNP supporting rant here' forms in the 'Have Your Say' section.
