Daily Express becomes first UK paper to overtly declare itself anti-Europe - but we've known that for years...

Thursday, 25 November 2010
Daily Express front cover, Thursday 25 November 2010The Daily Express has never shied away from adorning its front page with massive headlines and a single accompanying and dominating image.

But tomorrow (Thursday 25th) the rag, also known as the Daily Ex-Princess or the Diana Express due to its habitual tendency to devote editorial space to conspiracy stories about the late Princess Diana, will hit the news-stands with "Get Britain Out of Europe" emphatically displayed across its front - overtly declaring its eurosceptic editorial stance and in the process becoming the first British newspaper to do so.

Despite the fact the papers' readers (and non-readers alike) have long recognised the anti-Europe editorial stance the daily newspaper, how long will it be before those nutters calling for the UK to leave the EU to proclaim it a victory for their campaign?

Let us not forget that it was the only paper to vehemently oppose UK entry into what became the European Economic Community and ever since its creation has featured a 'Crusader' unashamedly facing out from the right in the colours of St George on its masthead...
