"I know exactly who reads the papers ...
The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country.
The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country.
The Times is read by people who do actually run the country.
The Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country.
The Financial Times is read by the people who own the country.
The Morning Star is read by the people who think the country ought to be
run by another country.
The Daily Telegraph is read by the people who think it is."
