Guardian shot down in flames (again)


Last week The Guardian suggested all broadband users should pay a £2 per month poll tax to support the struggling print media. And none struggles more than the champagne socialists’ mouthpiece itself.

Today, in an editorial, The Sun hit back. I certainly couldn’t have put it better myself:

Those deluded and arrogant hand-wringers at The Guardian have come up with a bonkers scheme to impose a tax on broadband users to fund money-haemorrhaging publications like their own. We have a more sensible proposal. Why not simply put together a product that excites and engages the British public.”

The Guardian is wrong on almost everything. But it does have a good tech page, credit where credit is due.
