Daily Mail in ‘Talking Complete Bollocks’ Shocker

 In Environment, Media

It’s not for nothing that the excellent Charlie Brooker refers to the Daily Mail as a ‘How-To Guide For Idiots, published in daily instalments’… It’s almost a pleasure to see it spontaneously combusting about the Euro, Europe in general, foreigners, muslims, gays, single mothers, video games, and pretty much most things that make up our world.

So it’s great fun to come across a sports editorial blurb in today’s copy, berating F1’s environmental credentials…
“The truth is Formula One is as environmentally friendly as a flatulent Jeremy Clarkson burning a fridge full of plastic bags in the Sizewell B nuclear reactor.”

It’s always a giggle to see the Daily Mail launch into a tirade that begins with the phrase “the truth is…” – mostly as it’s as sure a sign of a lie as someone who habitually starts sentences with “I’m not a racist but…”
The Mail and the truth inhabit very different worlds; one very real (and indeed truthful), the other a bit rabid and angry and mad.

Anyway – back to the point of this… the Mail is either very dumb or deliberately misleading readers here. (Or probably both – that appears to be their strong point…)
The Formula One circus has been carbon-neutral since around 1997; a fact revealed qiute modestly and unexpectedly by Max Mosley in 2006 – and something he clearly should have been shouting about to help shut up ignorant twats like the Mail who are never happier than when they’re furious about something. And I haven’t seen much environmental campaigning from them by the way. Gits.

Anyhoo – just wanted to set the record straight.
Daily Mail, sod off.
