Who Reads the Papers?

According to Yes, Prime Minister…

The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country.

The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country.

The Times is read by people who actually do run the country.

The Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country.

The Financial Times is read by people who own the country.

The Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country.

The Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it is [run by another country].

And Sun readers don’t care who runs the country… as long as she’s got big tits!

So if this is correct, I either think the country is run by another country (I like the Telegraph), or I think I ought to run the country (I like the Guardian). 😀

Just one more episode to watch – and then I have finished watching my complete DVD box set of Yes, (Prime) Minister.
