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.

What planet are they living on?
