Crash and burn

Despite the departure of one (and possibly two) senior staff for drunk driving offences, the execrable offence to the English language that is 7Days newspaper skids from dire to worse.

7Days' latest front page story manages to have no actual text, only headlines. Even the main one, "Mourning Sickness", is plagiarised from a dozen other news services. The rest of it contradicts itself.

The lives of millions of people are so empty they regard grieving for complete strangers as an enjoyable pastime...

And Diana's to blame.

Or are they asking readers to believe that the late Princess of Wales is personally responsible for people's empty lives?

Appalling, embarrassing, rubbish that is both a blot on journalism and a blot on Dubai.
