For decades, the Daily Mail has been pointing at people they don’t like and shouting:
WOLF! WOLF! IT’S A FUCKING WOLF! GET YOUR PITCHFORKS OUT AND FORK THE BASTARD!
They’ve also been pointing at people they do like – people who are often considerably more vicious than wolves – and shouting:
The inevitable conclusion to all this shouting has now transpired. A pack of wolves has invaded the Daily Mail offices.
Unlike the Daily Mail editorial team, wolves aren’t that dangerous. The staff at the Mail weren’t to know that, though. That’s why the following was screamed:
I heard wolves cause cancer!
These aren’t the good, lone-wolf types! They’ve formed together in a Communist-like pack!
Quick! Picture one of them howling at the moon and I’ll write a column insinuating it’s a Satanist or some shit!
When no one believed the Mail had actually been invaded by wolves, the staff attempted to flee. The problem was they all fled at once. But as they had an ‘everyone for themselves’ attitude, they ended up trampling one another.
You’ll be glad to know the wolves are fine, though, and recovering from their exposure to dangerous mammals.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
