Cheer up gays and lesbians, leftists and Muslims, immigrants and single mothers, benefit claimants and environmentalists, council estate dwellers and pacifists, Irish catholics and SNP-voters. You're not alone. The list of people despised by the Daily Mail can today celebrate a brand new addition to the already overcrowded club: childless women.
Carol Sarler, officially on course for the Most Ridiculous Piece of the Month Award, writes that childless women should be "distrusted". They are the ones "who run the office bitch-feast", "they turn up late and hungover after a night on the razz" and "[they are] regarded as cold and odd". Essentially, Sarler pontificates, they "lack essential humanity". And that's allegedly according to "a research conducted over six years".
But the most amazing thing is that, if they carry on at this rate, soon the Mail's own pseudo-journos won't have anyone else left to snipe at. They may even start insulting each other or their own readers. In a couple of years' time you may as well expect a piece that goes "You! Yes, you, reading this piece right now. You're a useless bag of shit. A study from University of Colorado just recently confirmed it. Fuck off. Now".
Or don't be surprised if you spot one that scoffs at fellow Mail colleagues. "This week researchers from the Bogroll Research Institute confirmed that the Mail's TV & Showbiz department is full of oddballs. Keep away from them, they smell very bad".
