The Daily Mail has been accused of turning its back on Britain and Her Majesty the Queen after it was revealed the newspaper has BANNED the use of BRITISH pounds in favour of US dollars in its articles. It has also controversially ABANDONED the Queen's English, changing to the US spelling of common words such as "labor" and "appetizer".
The move has angered many decent hard-working British people who said the move is the latest example of 'broken Britain'.
It is thought the Queen would be "incredibly saddened" to hear the news. And Her Majesty is not alone.
"It's unbelievable to think that after all we've been through to protect the pound from the unspeakable twin evils of Brussels and the Euro, the Daily Mail would just turn its back on the good old British pound coin in favour of the Yankee dollar. It is literally a slap in the face for the Queen," said a source close to this article.
However, the ban is being ignored by some within the Daily Mail. Writing in the newspaper yesterday, popular columnist Richard Littlejohn used THREE pound signs in one article, while Amanda Platell flaunted the new rules using "ise" AND "our" endings to a number of words instead of the newer "ize" and "or".
*DISCLAIMER: Of course the Daily Mail hasn't really turned its back on Britain or the Queen - in the same way the BBC hasn't really turned its back on 2,000 years of Christianity. I have merely jumped upon some isolated incidences and blown them massively out of proportion.
