2006 – The year in newspapers

By cunningly scouring our great British tabloid headlines over the last few months, I’ve created a cunning amalgamation that should tell you what middle-england was really thinking over the last 12 months or so.

I think…

"Asylum seeking islamo-paedos seek to steal Princess Di’s tomb and turn it into WMD, paid for by YOUR taxes!"

…is the best I can do.

I think it captures the curtain twitching blend of paranoia and hysteria, of the Mail/Express jugend. Meanwhile more leftwing or centrist (and worthwhile) broadsheet newspapers chose to cover the problems in Sudan and the fact that climate change is inevitable.
