An Open Letter to Richard Desmond on 'Hidden Migrants'

Are you happy that the Daily Express is saying that we should consider public figures such as Prince Charles, Ed Miliband, Boris Johnson and Winston Churchill as migrants "hidden" from the British public by official statistics? And is it correct that the Express is suggesting that the children of Nick Clegg and, for that matter, Nigel Farage are "hidden migrants"?

Last Night I Learnt: I Can Have Wrinkles or Diabetes

Last night, as I was following the hashtag #Tomorrowsnewspaperstoday on twitter around 10:30pm, I spotted two very interesting front pages that combined make a rather amusing story. ... The Daily Mail and Daily Express, both mentioned sugar and the effects that it can have on your body. I'm not sure which I should believe, if frankly, I should believe either (especially when leading TV and online sources haven't mentioned either story and their related research).

We're Getting It Wrong on Immigration

If you've seen the Daily Express or the Daily Mail over the festive period you may well be thinking that civilisation is about to end. If you believe the tabloid hype, Romanians and Bulgarians are currently streaming across the channel in their thousands like immigration's own re-enactment of the D-Day landings.

Sun-Block: Students' Unions Have No Business in Censoring Newspapers

Robert DG Smith

It should be noted that SU's have only 'banned' The Sun to the extent that their shops will no longer stock the newspaper. The world will not cave-in because a minuscule number of people have to find a local off-licence for their daily fix instead. But it is part of a wider trend: 2013 has seen a wave of trivial, but worrying, censorship encroach on student-life.

In Praise of Denis MacShane, Modern Politics' Tragic Hero

Alan Wager | Posted 23.02.2014 | UK Politics
Alan Wager

It was the tabloid's reaction, along with senior Tory MPs, to Vince Cable's evocation of Enoch Powell in bemoaning the current immigration panic that was inconsistent and fragmented- both accepting the negative connotations of Powell, while pursuing his modern equivalent. It also showed why Denis MacShane will be missed in public office...

Last Night's Panorama Wasn't Balanced, It Was Racist

Steve Rose | Posted 16.02.2014 | UK Politics
Steve Rose

This edition of Panorama is merely a symptom of the wider discourse around immigration. A debate so toxic that facts are shouted down in a wave of popular fascism. But it also threatens our relationship with Europe and our right to free movement. On both fronts, we should all be worried about where this debate is heading in 2015.

The Daily Express's Latest Campaign Flirts With Fascism

Steve Rose | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK
Steve Rose

The most recent front-pages from the Daily Express demonstrates their retreat from reality into the realm of myth... There is a very real danger of the Express co-opting and channelling a real and legitimate frustration and sense of betrayal against vulnerable migrants.
