The UK right-wing media’s calendar for next year…
International but when is it International Men’s day?
I don’t understand were the words “Women’s day” left out?
What are Halal Easter Eggs?
Insufficient Diana morning? Does that mean the right wing complains that people don’t mourn Diana enough, or that the right wingers themselves don’t mourn Diana enough?
Yes mate, they mistakenly left off the ‘Women’s Day’ from the text.

Insufficient Diana mourning - The Express and The Mail both love a good Diana story (putting a pic of her on the front page sells copies apparently - and they use her a lot, stories, scoops, interviews with former staff and friends, conspiracy theories, diaries, trinkets etc). It’s like a ‘moral’ (financial) crusade to keep a quite one-eyed memory of her alive.
Poppy rage - people not wearing the poppy. For some reason ‘everyone’ has to wear a poppy - for the last few years it’s become an annual debate - those that do vs don’t and why, plus the intricacies of what the poppy represents (and doesn’t).

The right wing media laps this stuff up - cheap and easy to write, appeals to many ‘patriots’ and ‘man in the street’ types (apparently), plus a chance to denigrate it’s opponents or critics. It’s a circle of never ending complaining from them.
