Don't even start me on that rural fascist scum....

How is it though that the Daily Mail can treat violent protest as 'a sign of legitimate anger in the country' when it is about protecting absurd ruralist rituals or about keeping the price of petrol down, but not for any other reason?

And how can they support the principle of subsidies for League-of-Gentlemen-Tubbs-like olde worlde yokelocalities, but reject them for mining communities?

Also note: Bryan Ferry's son, Otis, was amongst the protestors.

From coal miner's son to privileged rural twit in the space of a generation...
