The Nameless Tory and The Moai are starting a new project and I agree that the name—The Daily Mail Tendency—is a good one. The mission statement?
This blog will be dedicated to mercilessly tearing chunks out of the Daily Mail and any other forms of idiotic media... We take the view that, whether you're on the left or right, the Mail's bizarre obsessions with alternative medicine, Diana, house prices and immigrants are easy targets for a damn good fisking.

The Daily Mail Tendency welcomes contributions.

Looks like fun: perhaps they should contact Bookdrunk, who's percipacious fisk-raping of The Mail is legendary...

UPDATE: perhaps they should put a permanent link to Chris Applegate's Daily Mail Headline Generator.

What a characteristically colourful turn of phrase.

For my most recent attempt, see this reading of Tom Utley's Mail column where he decides, apparently in all seriousness, that global warming is no cause for concern because Norfolk is not yet underwater.

He's a national treasure.

Is the 'Mail' that obsessed with Diana?

Surely not as much as the 'Daily Express' - a week rarely goes by that doesn't see something on the front page about the inquest, Burrell, Dodi Fayed, etc!

Keep up the good work!

Caveat - the idea came to us after three pints. But then, so do all the great ones, I suppose.
