MEDIA SCAN: Rhodes to stay in Oxford


Asian Lite Newsdesk compiles the best front pages of Britain press. The quality broadsheet The Telegraph prominently displayed a pic of British imperialist Cecil Rhodes at Oxford University. Student activists wanted to remove it because it representthe Victorian imperialism. The uni dropped the idea because of donors pressure. Other top is Zika’s arrival in Europe; Google tax is Not a Tax! (The Guardian); Nursing Crisis as pay falls; and students struggle to decipher maths and English. The Red Tops are struggling to justify their stories on the granny who claimed to put £33 million lotto ticket in the wash. Now they are blaming the granny for cooking up the story! What a waste. Typical Tabloidism of the British Press.
