Independent RSS feed descriptionsThe Independent’s rapidly positioned itself as the left-wing underdog of broadsheet newspapers, a title the Guardian previously held without dispute.

But there’s one piece of Guardian territory you’d expect them to steer well clear of: that of the typologically challenged ‘Grauniad’. But no.

It’s like a right-wing newspaper not being able to spell ‘sponging’. Perhaps they should stick with Indy.
