Understanding the British

And to be fair, here’s the newspaper guide to understanding the Pommies.

  • The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country;
  • The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country;
  • The Times is read by people who actually do run the country;
  • The Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country;
  • The Financial Times is read by people who own the country;
  • The Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country;
  • The Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it already is.
  • The Sun is read by people who don’t care who runs the country, as long as she’s got big tits.
