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.
