Daily Mail

The headline is on the Daily Mail’s website at the time of writing.

Yes, it really appears that the British paper is blaming the UK’s striking teachers for the death of a 13 year old girl who was killed by a falling branch.

The logic? If she had been in school she wouldn’t have been hit by the branch.

The story has lead to condemnation from Twitter users, though judging from past examples, it seems unlikely the Mail will care too much.
