What sick beeper would come up with that?
And what editor in their right mind would approve that! It's just as bad as making a game where your Ian Huntley or Harald Shipman for god sake, you guys at the Daily Star are sick in the head!

@psymon: I hope a lot of people are, they won't be though.

Knowing the Star, they'll have appointed him new director of Parliamentary affairs. They're a bunch of semi-literate f*ckwit hacks.

Isn't it funny how Rockstars the people behind baby murder sims or at least that's what the media wants you to believe are actually good guys and not thugs? I mean yeah sure we play violent video games, the same way people watch violent films because we for the most part can differentiate between reality and code. Gamers are no different, no more anti-social, no more stupid, just we choose to have fun by team working and problem solving than making up articles.

Well done Rockstar and about time...

American newspapers>British ones
American news channels<British ones

Or at least that's how I see it.

We have plenty of great papers.

Just the Daily Star is not one of them.
