Mirror toadies in action

Remember the Daily Mirror? It used to be a campaigning newspaper that supported the ordinary man over the powerful, a voice for reform and a constant thorn in the side of the establishment. Now, it is a desperate rag that is joined at the hip to a failing Labour government that has ceased to even try and argue its case save to rubbish its opponents with bitter personal attacks. So, we have seen a succession of assaults on David Cameron because he went to Eton, as if it is his fault that he was born into a successful family. Now they have run a story where they secretly following David Cameron on his bicycle to see if he obeyed the highway code. No, I am not making this up. Anyway here it is reported by the Telegraph, which can at least claim to be a newspaper instead of a government propaganda sheet.

With the government at its lowest poll ratings in recent times and with many of the British people facing hard times this is the best that they can come up with? Pathetic.
