    I'd love to know how they get away with absurd claims like that! The sad thing is there are enough readers of that paper that would believe that, it could actually have an impact on voting.

    I think people should be made to take a basic IQ test before they are allowed to vote.[/controversial comment]

    This is why you should never use public transport.

    I bought two copies of the Sun yesterday - to use to start a fire.

    Whilst the pictures looked good, I didn't venture inside as I too would have felt a bit dirty...

    They won't...they will restrict/f@#* up the BBC (especially its online news) and allow murdoch to worm his dirty fingers into whatever pieces of pie happen to remain and charge you an arm and a leg for the pleasure of being spoonfed drivel...

    I was filling up at a garage on the way into work this morning and saw that one of the red tops had devoted its front page to Simon Cowell and his 'definative' look at the election race. I mean really! C'mon, even the biggest knuckle dragging tabloid reading idiot must be prompted to ask 'Eh? What? Why?' and possibly 'Who?'.

    Here's to a hung parliament - none of the parties seem to like the idea so it can only be a good thing.

    The Mirror were doing pretty much the same, except they were telling you which wards to vote Labour or Lib Dem to stop the Tories getting in.

    What ever happened to the idea of NEWSpapers telling us the NEWS, not telling us how we should think?

    I agree with the idea of some sort of intelligence test required before being able to vote. Will never happen though.

    Go on, admit it Little_Miss - you went into the newsagents and paid for it! For the thrill of buying something evil!
