    The Sun editorial meeting 24/06/15:

    ‘Ok, guys, it’s 9 days since the Berkeley tragedy. We’ve done the victims, now let’s move on to the survivors. We might get a week’s worth of front-pages out of that!’

    ‘Maybe people might be suffering Berkeley fatigue at this stage. It might be too much? There are other stories out there, no?’

    ‘Nonsense! Some of the victims and survivors are pretty young girls. This is gold for us! We gotta run with it!’

    ‘Ed! Ed! One of the survivors had just put up a web-post saying that she may not walk again!’

    ‘Is she pretty?’

    ‘Yep’

    ‘Front-page! Put the word ‘brave’ somewhere. Back to your desks’

    Testicle eating killer fish put Moby Dick in the ha’penny place, and, as for Sperm Whales… be afraid, very afraid…

    IS it too soon for the Berkeley tragedy survivors to be on Miriam O’Callaghan’s show yet? Or are we still in the casting phase for a movie about the event from Ed Guiney or Jim Sheridan’s daughter?

      Just wondering when this really strange outpouring of rage against the media’s coverage of Berkeley will end?

    I guess the ‘Click to continue reading’ is broken or something. In this case I’m delighted because i might have missed that legendary Star front page. Amazing.

      Well, the essence of the story is to get a mickey protector when you’re swimming in English waters, but as Frilly said, they could come over here; I’d make sure it’s buoyant though, otherwise you could suffer a fate worse than death, like being drowned by your mickey protector; imagine the headlines? You’d never live it down.
