    Very bad, as it seems

    An analysis of official data shows that three million in England and Wales had no job between 1996 and 2001, while a further two million had never had a job.
    Wouldn't that make........2 million who have never had a job?

    If, as another poster pointed out, this includes housewives the entire article is devoid of meaning. I'd be interested to see what the stats are on American welfare leaches, but the UK numbers actually seem pretty good

    Indeed.
    Call me picky but 2 million out of a population of over 60 million is pretty good ...

    We all know the Daily Mail sucks. The thing is so do many media outlets. The liberals shouldn't get away with attacking the Mail and thinking their outlets like the Guardian and the BBC are much better, even if they are sometimes more subtle and intelligent.

    Let's not forget the large readership of the Mail either. It is one of the most popular of all our newspapers. We can't pretend it is some marginal rag that doesn't respond to genuine, mainstream British attitudes.

    So is The Sun ... doesn't say much about our country when the two most popular newspapers have naked chicks and trash about Jordan ... no wonder we are dumbing down society.

    And BBC and Guardian have as much of a agenda in some respects as DailyMail just more subtle but hey, at least as you said it is intelligent.
    The difference being BBC information is usually more accurate as they are read by more people online and worldwide and they have the money to ensure it.

    I like The Independent

    I won't disagree with that. When I said intelligent though I certainly did not mean their agenda, just how it is expressed.

    I like The Independent
    Me too, although I tend to read all mass media with a lot of skepticism.

    If it wasn't for page 3 nobody would buy The Sun anyway.

    I tend to catch the free newspapers the government gives away at Bus stops and train stations. There really useful and informative. Being a nationalized paper, you cant trust everything you read. But its good enough for me.

    The daily mail specialises in scareing old women and rallying up mean old men.Im pretty sure alot of the people who work there have nothing but contempt for their readers.

    I like the times mainly,the guardian can be quite good,the independent is ok but i find some of the columnists annoying.

    Seems kinda stupid to just buy it for one photo. Playboy would give people more.

    Love the Metro.
    Pick it up at the station. I read it along with Guardian and Independent.
