Re: Newspapers read

This about sums it up. You can replace the word aristocracy with establishment to bring it more up to date.

Re: Newspapers read

I haven't bought a newspaper in years. The only time I see one is when I'm waiting for my takeaway to be prepared

So, do I tick ' non of these' (this suggests that I do read a newspaper, just not one of these) or do I just not tick anything?

I've probably posted it elsewhere:

I trod on a Daily Mail the other day and had to find some dog poo to wipe it off!

An early effective form of recycling, sadly now missed. F&C locally comes in dreadful plastic tray things, then wrapped in numerous sheets of clean white paper. The waste is truly scary. No wonder the planet is Donald Ducked.

Thats because it didn't register on the top circulation list 2017. At least you made it clear what you read - thanks.

Re: Newspapers read

Thinking about it, has there ever been an age (or year of birth) poll on here?

Yeah - go for it.

I met Methuselah on the X20 to Durham not so long ago. He saw me looking at my watch and said "I was a clean shaven young man when I got on this bus at Sunderland. Now look at me."
