Stop Funding Hate has a simple aim: political censorship

Here’s a law of politics that is about as cast-iron as a law of politics can be: people who hate tabloid newspapers are snobs. Every time. Scratch a Daily Mail basher or those people who seethe daily about the Sun and you will find someone who’s really just scared of the throng and of what all this tabloid fare is doing to their brains.

    Most of these don’t apply any more but…

    Jim Hacker: “Don’t tell me about the press. I know exactly who reads the papers:
    – The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country;
    – The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country;
    – The Times is read by people who actually do run the country;
    – The Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country;
    – The Financial Times is read by people who own the country;
    – The Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country;
    – And the Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it is.”

    Sir Humphrey: “Prime Minister, what about the people who read the Sun?”

    Bernard Woolley: “Sun readers don’t care who runs the country, as long as she’s got big tits.”
