"After a 2 second scan I didn't and still don't read that crap. And those that do were pretty much solid leave voters before the referendum was announced "

The rags in question readership probably were solid, from the neck up, leave voters, but don't you think such blatant lies could have influenced their decision in the first place, let alone reinforced their established prejudices ?....clearly not.

And if you consider a 2 sec scan to be sufficient to assimilate all of the montage, before admitting you don't actually read the headlines anyway, that's a rather accurate way of shooting yourself in both feet simultaneously ..well done !
