The Daily Mail is, famously, a racist, two-bit, terror-touting, block-fonted fountain of dumb delusion and hysterical howls at immigrant fears, harkening back to its fascist roots behind a vague, nondescript, illusory illustration of patriotism; it is a treacherous, traitorous publication premised on promises of simplicity in a world of black and white-but-mostly-white, run by a reptile with no allegiance except to the systems that maintain his influence; it is a manipulative manual that maintains the social narrative for those without the sophistication to carve one themselves. 

It is, in essence, an utter rag. 

For decades, it and its red-topped literary-compatriots were the last word in British politics, once it had seeped from Parliament and into the periphery of the viewing public. Now, though, with thanks to the internet, the incendiary nonsense of the Daily Mail’s ilk is increasingly available for all to see. 

Take today’s latest ridiculous headline, for instance.

Time was when it would be all that existed in our perception – past headlines having been wrapped around fish, doused in vinegar and tossed aside. Time is, though, when the internet doesn’t forget. 

Just one month ago, on the 17th of April, the Daily Mail was bleeding ink from its black heart over the Windrush Generation:

Daily Mail Front Page April 17th 2018 - Fiasco That Shames Britain - Windrush
Yet today, exactly one month on, The Daily Mail front page now asks without a hint of irony why in the hell, in a democratic country built on due process and the rule of law, we should have to bother proving that illegal immigrants are in fact here illegally before we give them the boot:

Daily Mail Front Page May 17th - Labour's Free For All On Migrants
It is a juxtaposition of such incredible irony that a tweet of the two front pages, spotted by Barrister Jamie Jenkins and captioned with ‘Yeah, still an absolute mystery how Windrush happened…‘, is currently, rightfully, going viral on Twitter:

Is it really any wonder we have a population so confused over the reality of immigration, and an environment so hostile and adverse to the human dignities of those with foreign accents, when Britain’s supposedly free, billionaire-owned media can routinely get away with feigning morality over the Tories’ vindictive immigration policy one month, and then revert back to their howling, anti-immigrant, hostile environment, deport-first-appeal-later rhetoric the very next.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
