I wouldn't diss tabloid readers too much as statistically they are more likely to share you obsession with political correctness and are forever muttering things like "You can't say anything now!" or "It's political correctness gone mad!". Tabloids are by there very nature populist and being non-PC is usually (nowadays) the default position of the populist.
I see your point, Chip.
I would, however, point out that my remarks described "many" tabloid readers rather than all tabloid readers or even tabloid readers in general.
Clearly, as well as the many tabloid readers referred to in my earlier post, there are a great many other tabloid readers whose standards of literacy and attitudes to 21st-century British society are thoroughly commendable.
If any such tabloid readers read my earlier post and imagined, even for a single moment, that I was deriding their education or their entirely reasonable (and in many cases absolutely correct) opinions, I hereby apologise most humbly and I promise to make every effort to express myself more clearly in future.
