The Daily Mail was named Newspaper of The Year at the Press Awards last night for its “strong and provocative voice”, campaigning journalism and shaping of the national conversation, judges said.

Hmmmm - I'd say Hitler had a “strong and provocative voice” - is he up for an award too? :eh:

“strong and provocative voice” = ability to shout lies and insults very loudly

Certainly the Mail is worthy of that award, but I wouldn't say it's something to be celebrated or encouraged.

You can see a few people doing that after hours in any city centre :D

Maybe they all work for the Mail!! ;)
