    Want the UK to be in the EU? whenever a pro-EU article from these newspapers appears on here, there'll be someone in the comments who'll be like "well, it's the Guardian, what did you expect?"

    Why would the Guardian and the Independent and the Financial Times and the Economist want the UK in but, say, the Daily Mail and the Telegraph want it out?

    I don't get why it's "natural" for the G to be pro-EU.

    It is most likely because the Guardian is a fairly liberal newspaper. I believe the Daily Mail and the Telegraph and of course the Sun is pro- Brexit. It's to do with the traditional political line that is drawn in British media.

    I know very well what the G, the DM and the T are.

    Being "liberal" doesn't mean supporting the EU. There's no intrinsic connection and yet people assume there is. Why would liberals necessarily support the EU?

    True but I guess the Guardian also has a fair amount of young people who frequent its readership. A lot of the writers on the Guardian also seem to be fairly young. Young people were also generally against Brexit.

    The guardian is a paper geared towards social democrats who believe our native culture is somewhat racist, that we should all have white guilt and that by not letting people come here we are punishing people for where they are born.
    EU migrants are white so this doesn't make any sense.
