My journey on the train this morning was lightened considerably by this little gem applied to my window:
For the benefit of the blind, and for search engines, it reads: “Daily Mail Free Zone – Please show consideration for fellow passengers by not reading or leaving copies of the Daily Mail newspaper in this coach”.
My initial reaction was to find the person responsible and either give them money, or to offer my services as a distributor – I’m on at least two trains a day.
This is how it’s going to be, isn’t it? This is how we would do revolution in the United Kingdom. Not with rioting, not with starvation protests, not by military coup … we would do it with sternly-worded letters to the editor, with subtle stickers on our cattle-truck windows, perhaps a Facebook group, and – under direst provocation - the occasional stern tutting. And as long as we can schedule “sticking it to the man” amongst our commute, fag-breaks and a cup of tea, it’s all good.
