The average daily sale is somewhere around three and a half million.

Which answers a follow up question about how many stupid people live in Britain...  Big grin

For comparison, the Times and Telegraph sell about a million and one and a quarter million respectively. Newspaper sales are pretty heavy in Britain.

German "Bild" has 4,5-5 Million readers, Germany has more inhabitants though.

After the euro '96 I was really asking myself how many people read such a dumb newspaper, 3,5 million is somehow....strange.

(I really have humor, but what english papers wrote while the euro '96 was imho too agressive or even racistic.)

I read the Daily Miror every day, a much more respectable newspaper than the trash u get in the Sun.

You don't "read" the Sun, you just look at the pictures! I read the Daily Mail.

Funnily enough, Racko, the Euro '96 stuff came from the Mirror, not the Sun. But they even managed to offend their own readers and had to apologise, which offers hope of some kind I suppose.

I used to buy the Sun every weekend, however since September 11 2001, I have bought the Daily Mirror every day. I find that the Mirror has more 'news' though it should improve its business section which is lacking.

The Sun is full of gossip and rarely full up with news. When there is news, I find the journalism of a lower calibre than the Daily Mirror or the broadsheets.

Schade in der Tat.

The Sun had september 11th coverage from top to bottom for about only 2 days, then resorted back to useless gossip and nude women. Show's what kind of newspaper they are.

Don´t the Daily Telegraph praise themselves as "the most widely read quality newspaper"? A few years ago, I read the Telegraph for about 10 months, daily. I have to say, this newspaper is very anti-European in general, anti-German in particular. Sometimes I thought the bias and prejudice they showed was on a par with the Sun´s.

Yes, the Telegraph is the biggest selling broadsheet. I don't think you are right in saying that it is anti-European or anti-German though. However, it is extremely anti-EU, which is not the same thing.

Whenever I visit the UK, I buy The Sun. Not for "quality" reasons, but simply because I think it's fun to read - i.e. because it's fun to "look at the pictures", Lapper is right on this one.
I visit the UK about twice every year, usually London. However last year when visited Glasgow I was surprised to see a special "The Scottish Sun" edition. And when in Ireland (Republic) I was even more surprised to the "The Irish sun". What's the difference between those papers? Is there sort of England-bashing in the Scottish and Irish version?

Well the Scottish Sun is, or was, pro-SNP! Murdoch's cynicism knows no bounds.
Happily, the Sun's circulation is in long-term decline.
But I dislike the Mail a lot more, nastier, hypocritical, pretends it's some kind of quality paper when it's as full as the same bollocks as the Sun, dressed up to look respectable.

I would glance at page three when they were sitting on the news stands but that's about it.

The US needs a gossipy tabloid with actual news (not far out there like with our current tabloids) and definitely a page...., oh let's make it page five to be a little different.
