Has the Human Rights Act Molested the Memory of Diana? | Belfast and Beyond | 9 Jan 2009 | Amnesty International UK

Has the Human Rights Act Molested the Memory of Diana?

That's just one of the hilarious headlines generated by Daily Mail-o-matic, which gives you a new Daily Mail-style headline every time you hit the refresh button.  

"Now updated to include 2009 bogeymen!" the site cheerfully tells us.

There's plenty more where that came from – at least sixty seconds worth of harmless online fun.

Of course, the headlines are no more unlikely (or true) than The Sun's infamous 2003 front page: 'Swan Bake – asylum seekers steal the Queen's birds for barbecues'.

That the story turned out to be a tissue of conjectures didn't seem to bother unduly the paper's editor or, more seriously, the Press Complaints Commission is less of a laughing matter.
