Nothing to report

We shouldn't be surprised by anything the Daily Mail does, but even by its own disgraceful standards the editorial decision to avoid mentioning the Orlando massacre - the worst ever mass shooting on US soil - until page 10 of the first edition and page 4 of the second is quite incredible. The front page, incidentally, was instead dedicated to a spurious piece of xenophobic fear-mongering about the threat of an influx of Turkish immigrants if we stay in the EU and a plug for a pull-out about the Queen's jewellery and a free pair of pearl earrings. Perhaps they've outsourced such decisions to the same person who made the call on the front pages of the Sun and the Times in the wake of the Hillsborough inquest. Or to columnist Jan Moir.
