Why are all the British tabloids saying there is a alien fleet on its way to earth and that it will be here in September and that it was actually detected in 2014 but it hasn't changed course. I also read that in October when Biden went to visit Russia it was to hand deliver a warning to the Russian government saying that they were coming in September. if its true we have more than immigration to worry about. I also read in one that part of the reason trump won was because in order for a world wide missile defense system to be built that in order for Russia to get the ok was that part of the deal trump had to win or else he wouldn't sign off on it giving permission for the usa to build a missile defense system in Russia on Russian soil. Its also exploded all over the internet do a google search for alien fleet 2017 September.

Q: Why?
A: Because they are tabloids, and the alien investors were really hoping to stave off the slow death by starvation that print media has cycled into as a direct result of people getting their 'news' from aggregation (read: plaigarism & illegal copyright infringement) sites, and/or facebook/clickbait sites, and the self-feeding vacuum of sheer ignorance that twitter relies on as a trend rating algorithm.

Americans originate from Britain/UK/Ireland (Unless they're Native American) so we're all equally stupid. Lol.

And because our Weekly World News eventually admitted they were a joke and folded (if they were still around, we'd have had "Hillary Clinton's secret e-mails from aliens!") after The Onion had become more popular, but in the UK, wacky tabloids are more traditional.
Think the NY Post or Daily News would ever get away with Page 3 Girls?

Ah, that reminds me of the old days of the Australasian Post. Page 3 girls, Front page girl, back page girls, and all the tabloid content you could lay your hands on throughout. Mind you, that was only since the end of WW2 until 2002, when things went PC and sales died.
We can still look to the NT News here in Australia for tabloid content, albeit concentrated on Croc stories. Aussie tabloids do seem to reflect more of English norms than the seemingly puritanical values of some of our culturally distant US cousins, where we must 'protect the children' from being educated in matters of sexuality and gender, but violence is A-Ok....
I feel bad for the FCC having to continually cater to the lowest common denominator.

What's there to worry about. We Canadians will send a diplomatic representative, we'll hash things out with our alien overlords over good quality beer and timbits and everyone will get to go home in time for their regularly scheduled programming. Geez every time a alien fleet gets near you Yanks and Euros lose your shit like it hasn't happened and been taken care of a thousand times before.
