The story also appeared in the Mail.
As Anton says:
Let's not pretend, please, that the Express would have put this on its front page, had it not involved immigrants.
Moreover, since all burglary charges were dropped, it's not clear that they stole anything. Certainly not a house.
This week there'll be plenty of times when people who aren't immigrants will be up in the dock for criminal damage - and worse - but will they get reported on the front page of the Express? I really doubt it.
Over at Angry Mob, Uponnothing has looked at one of the Mail's latest attempts to attack the BBC for no reason at all. Apparently, BBC1 showed some sport on a Saturday. Shocking, eh?
Today, they're trying to claim there's a story in the fact some people on the BBC messageboards (a favourite source of Mail stories about viewer 'fury') were complaining about an expert on the Antiques Roadshow having less than spotless fingernails.
Essential stuff from the Mail.
Talking of essential, the Mail was publishing 18-month-old stories on its website yesterday, as highlighted by Will Sturgeon at the Media Blog. Remember the one about the Welsh road sign that had an out-of-office reply printed on it?
Apparently, no one at the Mail did, despite the fact they covered it at the time.
The story appeared on the 'most read' list of the BBC website over the weekend (yes, using the BBC site for a 'story', again) and without checking the date, the Mail mindlessly copied it.
