Why bother with the doctor?



From just one issue of 'Metro' yesterday. More than a newspaper, it's now the place to go to diagnose all your ailments.

But notice the use of inverted commas: someone else said it, we didn't, don't sue. 'Linked' is a good word too. A great way to increase public paranoia without going through the tedious rigmarole of backing the statement up with proof.

Tense headache? Well, there's bound to be something about it in Metro soon. Probably saying that it is caused by drinking cans of fizzy pop.

Or eating sausages.
