... Click here (hat-tip Cath Elliot). Yes, that is a link to the original article in the Daily Fail. Sorry about that. But I link to the evil website of doom because, unusually for the Fail, the comments actually give me hope.

It's hard to believe that people like him still exist!

There are a couple of comments agreeing with him now:-(

Okay, I admit it - I LOL'd. That "article" has to be the most unintentionally funny piece of drivel I've ever read.

Are you quite sure it's not meant to be a parody? I'm having a hard time believing anybody could write something that naive and stupid in earnest.

Oh boo hoo, life isn't the way it was depicted in 60-year old films, boo hoo... I do hope he realizes his image of an idealized revisionist past never existed in the first place. What an absolute fairy tale....

Well just goes to show you what "awards" are worth. Most media industry awards are purely self-serving pat-ourselves-on-the-back tripe anyway.

I only read the title, couldn't bear to read the article.

I think the mail often gets sane comments on their articles when they get passed around.

The Daily Mail lifted some facebook photos of some Network (ie over 18 years old) Scouts at a party in fancy dress having a laugh. Comments went along the lines of "Well they're over 18" and "If they'd had Scout network when I was that age I wouldn't have left".

I am currently reading this aloud. In my best impression of "Disapproving from Surrey". Laughing my socks off.
I wonder if one could turn this into a show.

Wow. Incoherent and illogical much?

Gosh! I seem to have found myself part of a group detested by the Daily Mail - the shaven headed male; I am not sure how I will sleep tonight knowing that subjecting my head to a '1' blade on a fortnightly basis is responsible in part for the downfall of British society.
