We're All Going To Die Of Ebola Anger

Beds on Sunday: Dad told he can't send his daughter to school with a face mask and goggles so she won't get Ebola from the other pupils

In an interview with the BBC, he says this is all a stunt to "get people to think". Yes, dear reader, I know exactly what you're thinking, and it's not "loving that 1990 acid house look".

And here's a tip if you've got the media coming round: Don't write "think" on your forehead in permanent ink. It doesn't come off. Think about THAT for a minute.

Apart from that - thank you for sharing, sir. Well done.

Essex anger megamix

Essex Echo: Why won't the council fix my outhouse roof?

Because your tenancy agreement says it's your job. Next.

Brentwood Gazette: Why are people flytipping at the recycling centre?

Because the bins are too small and not emptied often enough, possibly due to council cuts. Nice pointing. Next.

Brentwood Gazette: Where the shittery is our new road sign?

Coming, all thanks to your perfectly executed YMCA dance, the first move of which appeared in your local Gazette. See? It does pay to moan.

No to Lidl anger

Bromley News Shopper: Campaign to save local pub from supermarket developer

Pubs are worth saving for one very good reason: The rise of UKIP coincides with the decline of the British pub. This is because former pub bores are being forced into doing something with their lives, and they're going to politics. Save the British pub.

I'm not usually a big fan of crowd scenes or unposed pictures of protests, but in this case: I have no words.
