daily mail speaking for englandPolitically correct campaigners have started a petition calling for British Airways to stop offering its passengers a copy of the Daily Mail. The censorship campaign is being backed by Alastair Campbell. The petition states:

It is ironic that our national carrier gives out a paper which is so xenophobic and critical of most things that are not home grown.

What must many of the overseas visitors think of some of the anti-european and other headlines that they read when flying into the UK.

All British Airways is doing is keeping up the sales levels of a newspaper that could not be objective if it tried to be and one that then has the hypocrisy to question the integrity of the BBC.

The paper has been attacked by commentators in recent weeks following its coverage of the Calais ‘child’ refugee story and for criticising the judges who ruled that parliament should override the will of the people.

Alastair Campbell tweeted his support for the ban:

If you are offered a Daily Mail on a plane today, just rip it up. Alastair Campbell (@campbellclaret)

Campbell claimed that Virgin boss Richard Branson supports his campaign to rid Virgin Atlantic flights of the Mail , but those who run his airline day to day insist the passengers want it . He also spoke of the frustration of watching readers enjoying the newspaper:

I want to take them by the neck – indeed, sometimes I do take them by the eyeball, and I ask: ‘Why are you reading that shit? It’s a national poison. Take some heroin or something.’
