hard to think that the journalist didn't turn it in with a massive evil smirk...
Where they had to get the phrase 'Hard Left' into every article about the Labour party.
This even extended to having photographs of three flags outside the party conference and calling them 'right', 'centre' and 'far left'.
3 cheers for 2011!
feel sorry for the family, obvs, but people in Yaxley have got form for being mouth-breathing Mail-bait:
for a pupil death that would fit this narrative.
and bringing such diseases as Dutch Elm Disease. All foreigners are scum.
I hate the Mail. What a bunch of cunts.
If the teachers hadn't been striking all the elm trees would have been at school and not exposed to Dutch Elm Disease.
Also, in the sidebar:
>>>'I hate my babies and my older children are animals,' says Octomom Nadya Suleman. She also said her children were animals.<<<
The Independent is in the same building (I think). Unless you hate The Independent as well, in which case, burn away.
even by Mail standards that is fucking low.
'The family live in a three-bedroomed home in a cul-de-sac in Yaxley.'
is it to build empathy with the Mail readership, who live in similar places? What possible reason is there for that sentence to even exist?
as a nice good British family who are Just Like You Dear Reader, so Not Deserving Of This Sort Of Thing and are therefore Victims Of The Evil Teachers.
Probably. It's all about 'us vs. them' in the end. Cunts.
he PCC couldn't look at the Jan Moir/Stephen Gately article until they'd had a formal complaint from his family.
so actually it was the Tories that killed her
I blame whoever planted the tree there in the first place! Who the hell decided, 10-40 years ago to plant a tree in that place so that it would kill this poor girl?! People who plant trees need to get a real job in the real world and stop planting trees that kill people!!!

I'm reasonably confident it's a piss-take, but then again...
what about this An angry parent wrote on Twitter: 'she should have been safe at school, she was just sat on a bench talking with friends....it could have been my daughter.'
Wow, words escape me
are we ever going to do anything beyond internet rage about the daily mail?
the sentiment kinda remains though. i mean, i'm as up for an internet teeth-gnash as the next person, but in the long run it's just kinda unfulfilling
(Like the rest of us)
It's cathartic for the rest of us.
it's like we're trapped in the liberal quandry that escher built or something
'hope the teachers can learn from this cos if they was not on strike this would not of happened'
We can see this has hit you hard. Where now for CG?
poor effort dude.
the majority of which are on the journey to and from school.
Do you really want to to go down the route of totting up the plus and minus column to see whether the strike had a net loss of life?
as meo is a pretty decent girl from the limited amount I know about her.
Why are you always so tedious on this site? I mean, is it just a character you've invented or something? Weird.
that actually made me laugh.
Tragic that a newspaper uses a story like this to fit their agenda.
Tragic that a young person has died in such circumstance.
Tragic that you cunts spend a whole thread prattling on about the evil Daily Mail and expressing shock at twitter comments rather than the very sad death of the girl.
but there's no chance I can get away with calling this tree-agic, is there?
so we can pay our respects?
is tart handles like you who manage to conceive of ways of being ahead of the moral superiority curve
and the fucking teachers chose not to strike on those days, bastards.
They've essentially used her as a martyr for their own bigoted opinions. But ignoring that.
A sad loss for the family. Any death of a child is a horrible thing to happen.
Have they changed it on the actual site now?
'[Her parents] described her death as a “tragic incident” and said they did not want it to be connected to any other events.'
free papers > the daily mail
the Mail would have blamed Kate and Wills?
Regardless of your political stance or opinion on yesterday's strikes, it's revolting to attach polemic to the tragic death of a young girl.
Why don't you go harass a member of the opposite sex?
One of the worst articles I've ever read. What an insidious, negative presence in the UK this newspaper is. Awful, regressive points made in the style of a KS4 'Writing to Persuade' student -excoriating one player for 'wearing earphones before a match.. & nodding her head like a teenager' whilst including pictures of her in her pants. Utterly revolting
because they are non school days, means they need to find another agenda
and I think I support the strikes, they might have a point buried in there somewhere, teachers are responsible for children's safety during term time so strikes do have an element of risk, weekends and holidays parents are prepared for but this many might not have been, still dont think it can just be the teacher fault it is the government as well they knew full well there would be a strike if they tried to change something like this. But yeah dont think that argument actually applies in this place as it was obviously a random tragic accident that could happen at any place any time
Such a stupid opinion. Really no polite way to say it.
Just in a practical way, kids are in the care of teachers whilst most parents wok, thats factual, teachers not doing that is bound to leave some children at risk, not really teachers fault and the government should have considered that rather than being so up for a fight with unions
Teachers are responsible for the physical wellbeing of children when they are both at school (or a school-organised trip/event). That's it.
I just meant when kids are supposed to be at school
What I meant is parents dont normally have to make arrangements for care of their children during term time days, so schools being closed means parents have to make alternate arrangements, some may not have had the time or resources so there may be a small proportion of children possibly at risk, this isnt the teachers faultt ultimately its the parents responsibility, im just saying a realistic consequence of teachers going on strike is some children having to take care of themselves, and potentialy at risk. I said I dont think it applies to this case and I just think teacher strikes and child safety are linked though not teachers fault obviously
So 'some may not have had the time or resources' is redundant.
I find it absurd that so many people are now equating education with child care.
Lose a days pay etc. Anyway im giving up, im not taling about responsibility, fault or blame Im simply talking about risk
