Yesterday the Daily Mail published a story where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced their support for the people of Ukraine. It got overwhelming positive responses from Mail commentators.

Today they published a very similar story where Harry and Meghan pay tribute to the people of the Ukraine which garnered overwhelmingly negative responses.

So far, so typical...

But now if you look at yesterday's article on the Cambridges all the comments have disappeared!

Why would the Daily Mail do this?

It had about 3,500 when I looked at it this morning.

No, that wasn't the people I was referring to. I like people it that. It was more the whingeing, pompous, gullible old fogey type I had in mind.
Tomus, When they all share the same opinion, I'm not sure what makes only some of them whingeing, pompous, gullible old fogey types, or how you automatically identify them solely by the newspaper they read. That doesn’t sound very sensible to me.

One of 'those' what, exactly?

I have been hammering pointless piffle - which you can add to woke-ism, although it is tortology, for as long as I have understood what it is, and regularly on here, so why you are suddenly surprised is a mystery.

Do you want to narrow that down, maybe have the courage of your convictions and name some names?

Lol Andy- you know I couldn't possibly do that. It would contravene Site Rules.
How frustrating, your urge to be offensive curtailed by rules you don't approve of, enforced by people you don't like.
