The reason why I don't read the Telegraph

Not for any reason other than the 'Social Stereotype' column:

SMS Origionals

It may be pedantic, but these illustrations make me very angry, without any real reason other than they are really ugly drawings. Not because they are watercolours, not because they are a little offensive, no, in fact they should be more offensive, then at least they wouldn't be a treasured part of what makes weekend newspapers so 'pipe and slippers'. They don't say anything, and they aren't funny- they just illustrate a terrible text in a poor way and patronise anyone reading them- as if you have never noticed the tiny lady with the massive car. Surely people that are able to read are also capable of making assumptions about stereotypes themselves?
