by | 3rd, July 2006

EVERY day of every week the Mail thinks up imaginative ways to remind you that life is cruel and you are going to experience pain and die.

Here is a selection of things that will kill you and yours from last week’s paper of doom…

“We’re woefully unprepared for a bird-flu pandemic, warns doctor” – Dr Steve Hajioff reintroduced bird flu to the Mail


“JAILED FOR STANDING UP FOR DECENCY” – Josephine Rooney, 69, refused to pay her council tax until something was done about vice in her area. So she broke the law and went to jail. And..?

“Super-casinos alert by doctors” – But it’s got to be more sociable than Internet gambling. No?

“RAUNCH. Is it liberating or destroying women? A life-long feminist argues that the obsession of today’s young women with sexually overt behaviour – from watching pornography to promiscuity – is not empowering, but damaging” – Joan Bakewell rages against the tarts


“On borrowed time. Ex-Labour minister warning over Britain’s immigration timebomb” – Frank Field stirs the melting pot

“I’m not finished with them yet. Strip-searched, thrown in a 3ft cell and forced to queue up with junkies for her asthma inhaler, the 69 year-old rates rebel reveals the full scandal of how her once-respectable street was destroyed. And sends a defiant message to those who jailed her…” – Josephine Rooney discovers that, contrary to what the Mail has said, jail is no holiday camp

His verdict: a spitefully cruel, utterly mindless freak show which raises deeply worrying questions about TV and mordern life” – Of course, he could just switch the telly off

“Chilling truth about ice cream – Seaweed. Palm oil. Eel blood, and lost of thin air. We reveal what they REALLY put in your favourite ice cream” – I prefer a flake
