The other day I was sitting opposite two blokes on the tube.
They were obviously workmates.
Both in their late twenties, both manual workers, one white, one black, one reading The Sun, one reading The Mirror.
After a while they finished reading their papers.
So they swapped papers and carried on reading.
I thought, hang on, that’s not how it’s supposed to work.
The Sun and The Mirror are completely different reader profiles.
The Sun is right wing, downmarket, Essex man, interested only in lewd jokes, big tits, material wealth, hanging’s-too-good-for-‘em, and ban immigrants.
