      How am I defending anything? I'm simply asking for clarification of your argument/charge?

      Try reading the pieces of the time then!

      Same c**t who penned the piece "self pity city" in the mail was the same f**ker who penned the piece that was edited by Boris in the spectator!! Simon f**king Heffer.

      A lot of the hatred in the 90s regarding the usual jibes from others to scousers came from that mail piece.

      OK but how is it racist or homophobic, that's still my question which you are still to address.

      I don't need to, have you ever tried reading them?

      You do need to if you want to back up your point, otherwise most people might think you are just talking sh*te, again!.

      Just to clarify I am in no way disputing that the tabloids are horrible and disgusting, I am just disputing that any major publication is openly racist or homophobic these days, a claim you made which you are unwilling or unable to back up.

      Katie Hopkins had an article published in The Sun only a couple of years ago where she compared refugees crossing the channel to cockroaches and urged the government to send in gunships to kill them. I'd say that was pretty openly racist

      If I recall she was swiftly removed from the Sun after that and condemned by almost everyone for those comments.

      Nobody at the Sun seemingly had a problem with the piece before it went to print. These articles don't just magically end up in the paper - they have to go through a chain of proof-readers, editors etc before they hit the press, so it's certainly an example of a major publication being openly racist. They only took action after the backlash to save their skin

      I think it's not a stretch to say that the likes of the Mail are openly xenophobic when it came to some of their headlines surrounding Brexit

      Deny it or bury your head in the sand if you like but they're

      ok you may have a bit of a point there with the xenophobia, although I think it was more anti EU than anti foreigner.

      I didn't actually use the words openly racist or homophobic, I referenced the mail's and sun behaviour towards the city of Liverpool, the only one who mentioned openly racist and homophobic was you, hence why I wouldn't answer your gobs***e questions.

      And ends up being used as policy by the current incumbents in govt, hence Priti f**king Prattle and the idea of the Royal Navy in the channel chasing migrant boats.
