Time to take the Express out of print

I was just in our local Co-Op where as usual I got a glimpse of all the papers' front pages, and I must say what I saw on the front of the Daily Express infuriated me. It was an out-and-out barefaced lie intended to stir up animosity for the EU. Apparently, we pay the European Union 267 million quid a week; but that figure has been totally rejected by every expert out there. The truth is, we stand to lose a hell of a lot of money when we leave the union, which is why I find it so infuriating that rags like the express still have the audacity to print such bull on their front pages. Small disagreements I can accept - after all, as one who knows there is no such thing as absolute, objective truth, I realise there are bound to be things in the papers which I disagree with. Yet falsehoods like this go far beyond that: the Express has knowingly printed a lie on it's front page, one intended to manipulate readers' opinions to suit it's petty, far right aims. Brexit will ruin our economy, and when we all start to suffer because of it, the papers which printed such lies will be to blame. The Express says we need to speed up the Brexit process, but it's obviously getting anxious: the outists know full well that the longer this farce goes on, the more likely it is to come to a crashing end with the UK remaining in the EU. As big a fan of freedom of speech that I am, surely the time has come to get this rag taken out of print. We deserve a better press than one soiled and taken into the gutter by such insults to journalism.
