    personaly i think they are both equally shit, mainly due to the fact of the restrictions put on them or they are scared to report thr truth where politics and influential figures are concerned.

    Whe in LoS I pick up whatever's available, or what's nearest - not much difference between the two to me.

    I'm in the UK and bought The Observer today. Even after throwing away the 'Business' and 'Travel' sections I still have 4 broadsheet sections and 2 magazines to work my way through.
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!

    £1.80 (117B) in dead tree version.

    The online versions of all the UK broadsheets are very good. I'm not sure how they make their money - I guess it's advertising, but I haven't followed an Internet advert (by choice) yet.

    I used to think so. Now I'm dissapointed if I can't finish it in an hour (cryptic clues that is). The Sunday Skeleton puzzle is a challenge and I usually end up missing a few clues and I still cant work out the answers when printed on Monday. The other puzzles on Sunday are just fucking stupid ridiculous septic nonsense that rely on you knowing a lot of meaningless acronyms for stupid fcuking septic college basket ball teams and/or fields etc. That is not a crossword.

    The Nation's crosswords are just shite. Don't even get me started on their crap.
    You, sir, are a God among men....
    Short Men, who aren't terribly bright....
    More like dwarves with learning disabilities....
    You are a God among Dwarves With Learning Disabilities.

    Bangkok Post.

    I read the headlines, the letters and the sport. The rest of it is just cut & paste jobs from Yahoo!

    I hate the Nation because of all the page changing you have to do if you want to finish an article.

    It would be nice if there was a rag that dealt with stuff that actually means shit (to us) and who tried to expose a lot of these criminals who 'govern' the country.
