Prelium Newspaper Task with analysisPresentation Transcript
Rowdy Rioters Rule the Roads ... WHILE THE PM CATCHES A TAN Between the 6th and 10th August 2011, several London boroughs and districts of cities and towns across England suffered widespread rioting, looting and arson. Meanwhile David Cameron the Prime minister of the United Kingdom was frolicking in the sun with his family on holiday, only to come back when the riots were about to die down and salvage what was left of the carnage and chaos that took place and thus claim the role of the so called hero by allowing the use of rubber bullets and water canons during an emergency conference. Cameron had to drop all of his ‘important’ duties in order to come back to England to sort out the situation like he’s supposed to do, thank you Cameron.
Both pictures were chosen for contrast due to the fact that the left one is all bright and blue whereas the other image looks more chaotic and depressing and the only light seen in the image is the reckless fire in the street.
The first line in the headline is alliterated to enhance the impact of the riots that it had on the London area its also easier to read witch makes it roll of the tongue. But in contrast I made the part about David Cameron on holiday bold and bright red in order to make the fact that he was on holiday more of a disaster than the riots itself.
The information is mixture of formal and informal language in order to appeal to both types of readers coming from either a higher or lower class. The last sentence is a more sarcastic statement because he’s been given credit for going out of his way to leave his paradise and come back to London and supposedly saving the day.
Overall the article is an attack on Cameron instead of praising him for coming back, as I've found out from research the daily mirror are opposing the conservatives being labour party supporters since the 1945 elections which makes an attack on the prime minister more likely and makes the newspaper more suitable for this kind of story
