yet can't afford 50p for the bridge.
She's nothing if not subtle.
"young women rushing round after work, leaving with carrier bags and expectation."
"almost buy that upmarket pizza; the choice tells me Jo wanted a lovely life, something above the ordinary.
what the actual fuck
Isn’t it interesting that you can snatch a young woman’s life away from her in the most violent, painful, frightening way possible, take away her future children, her future Christmases, take away everything she loves, and yet there are elaborate systems in place to ensure you do not cross a bridge for only 30 pence?
Someones been murdered so how about we scrap the fee for the bridge, ay?
and told her to stop being a mongo, surely?
that's a salad and chips, brah.
also, how obnoxious is the mail's extra pastey bit? grrr
Poor multimillionaire having to spend £200 on petrol! :(
Where do you draw the line?
Cocktail I think it was called.
SHOW ME THE MONEY! classic line.
It was really sad when Goose died, but Tom managed to graduate in the end anyway :D
they were waiting to see which of them would get to have sex.
Like...a code of practice? IMAGINE!
It's common sense stuff aimed at the nationals - who pretty much ignore it because it's inconvenient. The regionals rarely stray from it out of decency. It's completely non-enforcable.
Not that I'm supporting what TheBeautifulReturn is saying, that's just lunacy.
it's chairman is also Paul Dacre, the editor of the dailymail. if that changes your perception of it one way or t'other.
would redirect their massive R&D budgets away from perfecting the complex mechanisms required to identify coins and towards the elimination of murderous capabilities from the human mind.
Our priorities are all wrong.
It's got people talking, and kicked up a fuss on twitter, and is probably one of the most read articles on the site today. Just like Jan Moir's excellent article on Stephen Gately, it's sent loads of extra traffic to the Daily Mail site. I'm guessing they won't lose too many readers because of this either. She'll probably get a bonus for writing something so popular.
I wouldn't have realised it was trolling.
I'm still trying to make my mind up, btw.
However on the other hand she does appear to be bat-shit crazy so perhaps she genuinely thought it was worth writing in the first place and not at all insensitive. Maybe Paul Dacre pays her so well as he knows that her articles wind people up.
Regardless I'm guessing that the reaction caused by this article was more a cause for celebration in the DM offices than one of "oh no why did we print such a terrible article"
It's all about bringing people to the site and she did a good job of that. I would not have gone to the Daily Mail site yesterday if it wasn't for this article. From what I've read she's very well paid by the Daily Mail and she obviously does her job well. It's not even excellently written but that's also not the point of her article.
When you become supreme leader you can get this kind of stuff banned, until then you can just keep visiting the Daily Mail site and moaning about it. They'll like you. The more hits they get on their website the happier they'll be.
It's the duty of news columnists to inform, not to stir up gossip on such a sensitive topic.
Perhaps you're expecting too much of the Daily Mail if you're expecting it to inform you.
She is a columnist, not a reporter, and this was an op-ed piece, and as such has no need to stick to the facts or inform readers.
She doesn't seem to do anything remotely to do with news, but happens to have op-ed columns in a news paper. From further research (ie. five minutes of googling) previous columns have included her detailing her devastating poverty while owning a 48 acre £1.9m property. She's a fraud and should not be taken seriously. She's there to entertain/shock and people lap that shit up.
It isn't possible
the worst thing is all this disgusting 'poor jo' stuff. it's tragic, yes....but don't make the poor girl into a fucking saint just because she was murdered. i hate that.
can you guys promise that if ever i get shanked, you wont let the newspapers roll with...'promising young post-graduate gets snatched away from his attempt to make this world a better place'...and let everyone know that i could sometimes be a complete cunt like everyone else. cheers.
FOR YOUR LOVE GOD....WHAT IS THIS PENCE WE PAY! THIS PRICE WE PAY FOR SOME PENCE OUR GOD...SHE WAS LOVELY GOD...SO LOVELY...HOW CAN SHE BE SO LOVELY AND NOW NOT LOVELY BUT IT ALWAYS HAS TO BE 50P GOD?....HOW CAN THAT BE GOD?

MY GOD., MY FUCKING GOD. Y GOD.'
...'Tragic internet forum obsessed wanker dies while attempting to push a granny in front of a bus'
Would that be better?
Anyway, fucking shit article. The tone is all over the place. But it is the Daily Mail.
"Not all men are monsters" when he probably just said "Here is 50p, now hurry the fuck up" or DIDN'T EVEN GIVE HER 50P OR THERE WAS NO TRUCK DRIVER
I'd have thrown her off the bridge.
The choice tells me Jo thought 'Can't be fucked cooking something fancy tonight. I'll just get a pizza out Tesco's.'
The way this is written makes me cringe. It reminds me of the embarrassing way a friend writes. Stuff like "Met up with an old friend last night; we slid under the table to past histories and whisky" in emails/texts. Aaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh, stopitshutup. He probably leaves the shop with carrier bags and expectations too.
She uses lovely like, six times.
Bet she's the killer.
