Top stories in the latest issue:

ROGUE MAIL ROUND-UP…
Why columnist Amanda Platell bigged up Kim Kardashian’s already quite big bottom to save proprietor Lord Rothermere’s blushes…

The day Sebastian Shakespeare, ‘stiletto-sharp’ diarist, devoted a full page to puffing an obscure history festival to delight Milady Rothermere…

MailOnline publisher Martin Clarke runs off down the street with someone’s iPad after a boozy disagreement at an advertising jolly in Cannes…

And why the paper’s recent attack on yobbish behaviour at Ascot was a case of déjà-lu for those read it last year, the year before and the year before that.

MAMMARY LAPSE?
Ed Miliband’s ‘sorry’ for posing with a copy of the hated Sun is hard to swallow… as Red-top Ed has posed with it at least three times before!

OWED TO JOY
Despite proprietor Richard Desmond’s claims of editorial independence, tweets from wife Joy suggest even she has a say in what goes in the Express.

VICE DOESN’T PAY
Why galley slaves at the hipsters’ bible Vice (value: $2.2bn) are finding the crazy hours, with no job security, overtime or sick pay, increasingly uncool.

A SACKFUL OF NEW JOBS
The Telegraph boasts of hiring lots of new tech designers and search engine optimisers, but keeps schtum about all the proper hacks it has just fired.

BILGE STILL PUMPING
The Guardian’s Donetsk coverage is spoilt as John ‘Bilge’ Pilger falls for a lie about pro-Ukrainian Nazis and attacks the US for threatening world war.

FAULT LINES
All the critics agree The Fault in Our Stars is mawkish tripe… but not the Sunday Times. Any chance it’s a 20th Century Fox film, d’you think?
