I tend to read The Guardian daily as my main source of news as it's the best source of well investigated journalism remaining in this country, notably with Windrush and the electoral fraud surrounding Vote Leave.

I check BBC News for the headlines but find it's extraordinarily dumbed down its language these days. I remember a piece on one of the Withdrawal Agreement votes having a sentence of something like "whether that can go ahead will be decided by an MP named [whatever his name is]", like it's strawberry floating Jackanory.

BBC tends to have better sports coverage though.

Other than those I'll read the odd article from other, dedicated publications (New Statesman etc.) from links via following centre and leftist journalists/commentators on Twitter.

I don't think I've watched news of the TV in years now, if I do it will tend to be Channel 4 - again because they, coupled with BBC Foreign Correspondents are the best investigative journalists I think working in British media.

Doesn't really matter, at the end of the day we all know we're just being fed what they want us to hear, I'm not fussed where my corruption comes from, all I know is, it's there!

I also get a bit of news from the Guardian. I tend to visit the website most days, partly for the news, but partly to see what they're hand-wringing about, and what they're on their high horse about. It's good for a laugh in that respect.


Erghh girls football and homosexuals demanding rights. :x :x :x

Exactly, they still haven't learnt their place. :roll:

Ah yes, The Guardian, i knew a guy once who would constantly tell me with a smug demeanour that he read it, not sure if he wanted me to give him a medal for doing so, but that's what it felt like.
