The Grey Lady’s even turned her ghoulish gaze on the Queen, poisonously – and falsely – denouncing the lifeless monarch as a image of colonialism.
Now it moans that UK taxpayers struggling to warmth houses should foot the invoice for the state funeral for… the top of state. What an incredible scoop!
What sticks within the craw is the paper’s sickening hypocrisy. Firstly, American taxpayers themselves are paying enormous sums to fly President Biden right here for the service.
And second, how has it the audacity to painting Britain as a Dickensian dystopia, when swathes of the US are crime-plagued, poverty-stricken, racially-riven hellholes?
