Getting to the bottom of the barrel now. Scraping it even.
I occasionally look at UK newspapers online and I can't say I have found anything really satisfactory. The Independent is ok, but it is not in the style I am used to. Nothing wrong with the writings, more the presentation.
Then I found The Guardian. A fine newspaper it is. Take this piece from today. Ok, it is not really an example, just something I found interesting, a rebuttal of some outrageous claims made by the right wing in the US over Obama's proposed health reforms.
The Guardian would seem to be the closest thing in the UK that is near to our own The Age and Sydney Morning Herald.
