Ignoring all the “New Year’s Celebrations” headlines, which this reviewer really cannot get excited about, most of the papers dwell on immigration, looks backwards forward to 2013 & 2014 and the NHS, as well as the unfortunate Schumacher story
Reasons to be cheerful as we welcome 2014 Yes, the bookies have UKIP down as winning the Euro elections.
And the reader’s comments are a joy to behold, UKIP supporters to a man, bar the odd troll
That’s one way of doing it. Perhaps we’ll do it through the ballot box instead.
This doesn’t really fit in with stories of busloads and planeloads headed here.
The Independent are believing what their polls tell them, not actual By Election results
What we’d expect from The Guardian
Well, there’s a turn up for the books – Douglas Alexander obviously thinks Red Ed will need some help from Nigel to bash the Tories! I am sure Nigel will bash Labour just as much.
The AGW fanatics continue to find ways of ignoring the evidence.
Backing up the same story in the Telegraph, which the Independent and Guardian quietly ignore
The lady is given a CBE for her work, and then suffers from trolls online
We’ll believe it when we see it.
The benefits of immigration, eh?
Who has the most human rights then?
No doubt an article straight from Labour Party HQ. It ignores the serious issues, and mostly looks at the silly ones (like the curvature of bananas)
This prompted us to look at the Daily Mirror’s readership figures. It would seem that a lot of readers are being driven away from around 3.35 million in 2010 to 2.85 million in March 2013, falling by around 100,000 per quarter
Kevin Maguire does not have any kind words to say about UKIP:
This Colonel Blimp will grow increasingly demagogic, preaching hatred. The most annoying side of Farage is, if you steer clear of his Turbo Tory politics, he is likable over a pint.
In the coming year I reckon opponents will lose their fear of Farage and go for his jugular. Labour’s Warley Warrior, John Spellar, has drafted leaflets to expose UKIP as champions of a wealthy few.
Expect more Godfrey “slut” Bloom-style eruptions among UKIP’s motley crew.
Easily deflected, don’t you think?
