Well done Virgin Trains. Really focusing on the important stuff. Never mind the sky-high fares, packed carriages and endless delays and cancellations. Let's control people's reading material instead.

Loving the way thick rightwingers are in meltdown over Virgin Trains' decision to stop buying the Daily Mail, then realise they can't do anything about it because of their own policy of giving private rail firms a monopoly to do what they like.

So right wingers are going to boycott Virgin Trains because of it's Daily Mail boycott. Sounds like a win-win situation.

I'm glad that Virgin Trains won't be selling hate filled Daily Mail from now on. And no they haven't 'banned it'. They just won't be selling it. There's no infringement of free speech. Unless we're going to start forcing private companies to sell products they don't want to sell?

The Daily Mail’s response to Virgin stopping sales of the paper on West Coast trains is to jibe that hardly anyone wanted to buy the paper anyway, which is an interesting tactic. https://t.co/lE0ekGcU5i pic.twitter.com/a31Aiv3pTR
