Brexit and the UK press

There’s quite a lot of rabid insanity in the UK press about Brexit.

It’s the kind of debate where holding opposing views means you attack the *person*, rather than debate the views themselves.

One particularly rabid newspaper has been The Express, a mass-market, populist tabloid which is one step above the newspapers which print topless women.

A headline today was – “UK weather: Heatwave to last until OCTOBER – Portugal hot temperatures spread to BRITAIN”

And I thought, mockingly, “ah, another reason to leave Europe!” 🙂
