THE Daily Mirror leads with news of Brad Pitt ruining Remembrance Day by hanging out with actors dressed as Nazis in Shirburn, Oxon. The population of Shirburn is around 100.

Fury as director of Brad Pitt film stages Nazi war scenes in English village on REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY

Whose fury? It turns out that the film is called Fury . But no-one from Shirburn says they are furious. They expected the noise. Location manager Lee Robertson, wrote to residents on behalf of Pinewood Studios: “There will be intermittent controlled gunfire and explosives throughout our filming.We would like to thank you in advance for putting up with us and making it possible to film at such a great location.” But there’s no mention of that in the Mirror . Instead we get:

Bosses on Brad Pitt’s new movie sparked outrage yesterday by filming Nazi battle scenes in an English village on the day our nation honours its war dead. The silence on what should have been a sombre Remembrance Day morning was shattered in an extremely insensitive manner.

You mean at 11am the toy guns went bang-bang?

Controversial US film director David Ayer unleashed a volley of explosions and gunfire in the quiet English ­countryside at 4am while an army of extras dressed as Nazi soldiers rampaged over fields.

Er,.. At 4am? Granted most people are pretty quiet at 4am. But that not because they are being respectful. That ‘s because they are asleep. Bug the Mirror manages to fine someone furious with outrage:

“This was grotesquely disrespectful and offensive. I can’t believe I wore an SS uniform on Remembrance Sunday.”

Adding:

“But this is what I do and I cannot just walk off set for the sake of a principle, especially in this economic climate.”

You make your choices to be “grotesque”, “principled” or earn a few quid. You are only obeying orders. And is linking the “disgrace” to austerity a way to implicating David Cameron and the Tories in this horror? Yeah, of course it is. The Mirror
