It wasn't so long ago that the Times' heavyweight leader columns would be expressly for disseminating political and social thinkpieces of great import, setting the standard for the nation and providing knowledgeable comment on the events that shape our agendas day to day. You couldn't come away from reading the Thunderer's point of view without it somehow shaping your own worldview.
This morning, the Times ran a leader on bands with bad names.
This, should you need to know, was a follow up to the page five lead (page five! Bloody hell, Gordon, you could have called that election and saved us from this), which however it's dressed up - and by the way, there is no band we can find called Jing Jings, and neither GoodBooks nor Good Shoes are really Radio 1 supported - frankly amounts to using 800 words of the land's most august broadsheet's news pages to take the piss out of Joe Lean & The Jing Jang Jong. Good work.
