    I think the daily star is trying to compete with the daily sport for the most pointless headlines.

    Front page of the star this morning:-

    "SNOW ON WAY BY FRIDAY"

    No i did not buy this paper, it isn't even suitable for toilet paper :lol:

    Now, now, now...some respect please. Everton Fox is a professional meteorologist. There are plenty of people who spout incorrect faulty unsounds wide of the mark rubbish about cold weather without having to use him as an example. PM for my list if you like.

    Nurse Penguin reporting for duty Doctor Nil. Where does the patient require this unfeasibly large tube inserted?

    Edit: completely forgot the point of this. I usually believe that you get what you pay for. However in the case of tabloid newspapers that would be a bit ambitious.

    Lord P pointed this headline out to me earlier as we passed a newspaper stand.

    I laughed.

    A lot.

    After all, if there was even the vaguest of hints of snow for the UK on Friday, this forum would have gone into meltdown...

    Sadly a lot of people believe it. On FRiday they'll be saying "Bloody Typical the Met office got it wrong again" I'll just grate my teeth.

    What's truly disturbing is that if The Daily Star can get away with stuff like this, what other half-baked truths and fabrications are they peddling? It strikes me that part of their raison d'etre is to create moral or social panic to distract their 'readership' (if that's the right term!) from the truly important issues that face us.

    Regards,

    Mike.

    Anyway I'll ask for my free pint on Friday. An easy win bet that was now the question is will they stand to it.

    I forgot to add........

    In 1981 I got a shot of an IRA bomb destroying a fast food restaurant in Oxford Street. I rushed my shots to the Evening Standard, only to find it had been 'put to bed'. However, the picture editor saw my shot and bought it to use in the next day's edition of the Daily Express. Delighted, I consented (I was in a terrible state of shock). To my eternal dismay, it was also used in the next day's editon of the Daily Star! To add to the humiliation, I was described as a 'Daily Star reader'!!! I'm many things, but I am definitely NOT a Daily Star reader. <_< My mates have never let me forget this - to this day, whenever we meet up for a curry or a drink or three, they all say, ''Here he comes. Its the Daily Star reader!''

    Let this be a cautionary tale for you all!!!

    Kind regards,

    Mike.

    I never believe a word the tabloids say. On the sports pages for example, every day some big player x is going to move to big club x, or manager x is going to move to club x, or manager x is about to be imminently sacked. Very rarely are they true.

    They must just plain make most of their stories up.
