The Metro is beyond terrible though.
I was surprised by how much stuff there actually was in it. Found it quite readable, actually, certainly compared to its previous incarnation.
I suspect the London version must be different, because whenever i read its online articles, especially sport pieces, they're fucking shocking...or is that a completely different paper?
Still prefer to read 'i'. It's the perfect mix, for me - not tabloidy shite, but not overwritten pretentious nonsense and constant columns by retarded attention-seekers, like the Guardian.
I see it as free because I pay with 2p coins, I have a massive pot I have collected over the years. It is worth it for the decent cryptic crossword alone.
They have stuff of local interest, events and reviews, plus on the whole they are actually quite a balanced news source. Imagine if something along the lines of the Sun or Mail were given out daily to every commuter - the country would simmer with misery and anger about trivial PC gone mad non-stories.
