Recommended read - No sleep til Brooklands

Terrific post by Jonathan on last week's Daily Mail (some stories have been highlighted here, but he includes several that weren't). Read Balloons, arses and Facebook.

His point about the Mail website and its Heat-like fascination with celebrity (and celebrity skin in particular) is a good one - it's such a curious dichotomy with the newspaper and its self-proclaimed 'values' it's hard to imagine they are part of the same organisation. Unless they're hypocrites, of course.

This was particularly true of the article about Peaches Geldof being topless on a beach and the Mail writing in a neat little box about every one of her 20 tattoos, where they are and what they are. The idea of some sleazy middle-aged Mail journos leering over her pics in the name of research, well, makes you proud to be British, doesn't it? Ahem.
