The British newspapers
Let's talk about English papers. First of all there is no subscription. You many buy any sale. There are too many types of newspapers; the "popular" papers and the "quality" papers. The popular papers are less in size, with many pictures, big headlines and short articles. They are easy to read. The quality papers are for more serious readership. These papers are bigger in size, with larger articles and more detailed information. The newspapers in Britain are pround of the fact that they are different from each other - each tries to have a definite profile. The following is a witty, but at least partly accurate, description of the people who read the different papers.
