Wallowing in other's shortcomings

Let's all join in moral condemnation of the woman who 'abandoned her children' and jetted off to Spain for a week and is now facing jail.

They didn't come to any harm. They had plenty of family around. The older girl was 14 - hardly a toddler. Maybe the mother was wrong - but if her absence in Spain for a few days was so detrimental, sending her to jail is worse.

She was clearly stressed out too, it was a pretty exceptional case. Oh how I hate the mysoginist Daily Mail.

I love the way they can combine moral outrage with titilating photos.

Yeah they decry raunch culture and moral outrages and then run a whole slew of raunch etc in the right hand column usually with the best upskirt pictures.
