Who reads the newspapers? 6

While we tensely await the outcome of the British referendum which will decide whether or not the country leaves the EU (we hope it leaves*), here’s some British comedy.

PowerLine posted this clip from the marvelous British series Yes, Prime Minister. 

We also pinch from PowerLine the American version of the joke about the newspapers:

The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country; the New York Times is read by people who think they ought to run the country; the New York Daily News is read by people who actually do run the country; USA Today is read by the wives of the people who run the country; the Wall Street Journal is read by people who own the country; the Los Angeles Times is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country; the New York Post is read by people who think that it is.

There is, however, no American newspaper equivalent of The Sun. It’s the one thing where Rupert Murdoch has let us down.

    Funny! Hope the Freedom Association campaign is successful in the referendum.
    ….Just saw the results – remain 57, leave 43….how disappointing. It was so close…

    • Haven’t seen those results. But it seems “Remain” is winning. Terrible, terrible, terrible!

    • Better news now, liz.

      “Based on analysis of the remaining undeclared counts, the BBC forecasts that UK has voted to leave the European Union by 52% to 48%.”


      HUGE relief!!!

        Hats off to the people of (once again) Great Britain. If they can kick the scumbag elitists of Europe to the curb, with how even more leftist they are over there, it really gives me hope that we can do even worse to them across the pond here in the States.

        • Yes! Maybe this is a turning and the Left has had its day!

        Great news!!! They pulled it off, in spite of Soros, Obama, and all the propaganda of the Left. This will be a new beginning for Britain.
        Hope it’s a sign of what’s to come in the presidential election.
