Daily Mail on top form

Everything you need to know right there in the headline.

Putin enemy living in John Terry's old £5million mansion 'was poisoned just weeks before Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were attacked'

I like the weak link ones that go like this:

Man who once dated Bruce Forsyth's daughter broke leg riding motorcycle once owned by Steve McQueen in accident where an episode of Game of Thrones was filmed.

RT... you forgot "and is now recuperating in his £2 million Surrey mansion previously owned by him off the telly"

Knew it was Terry all along.

Is this just a UK thing, or do rags in other countries report stories in a similar fashion?

I wonder if ancient Rome had the equivalent of the DM?

"Senator found dead from suspected poisoning in his 15 million sestertii villa"

BJ, other newspapers do it to some extent, but the Mail takes it to extremes, the Mail is not typical of the UK media as a whole.

But perhaps there's one paper in every country that's like the Mail? I don't know.
