In a fit of outrage not witnessed since Jeremy Corbyn met the Queen with a slightly askew tie, The Telegraph has whipped itself into a frenzy over Sadiq Khan’s apparent yawn during her Majesty’s 90th birthday service on Friday.
Today, there are conflicts to be covered across the Middle East, allegations of electoral fraud (unprecedented in UK history), the Conservative party is in civil war over the EU Referendum, the economy is stalled, working people are seeing their wages and working conditions plummet – and The Telegraph devotes airtime to watching the Mayor of London yawn while awaiting the commencement of a royal ceremony.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
