Quiet on here today

Is it the weather or what?

I'll start a contentious thread.....

The Levinson report
Now all I know about this are the sound bites on the news but to me, it's all the wrong way round. It's the stupid gullible folks who buy the wretched newspapers and want all the gory details of other people's lives. If it was splashed all over the papers that John who's engaged to Jane was actually having relationships with David they'd be first to complain. I do not buy any newspapers as if there's anything in them I actually know about, it's usually wrong.
Having said that, things like the MP's expenses furore was certainly worth bringing out into the public domain

So there we are, debate that...I'm off to open a bottle of Shiraz

Haven't bought a newspaper for 35 years. I'm dead against the power they have to destroy people and sometimes even to drive people to kill themselves. Their power means they can print what they like and hound who they want.

Not that I'm biased!

Only buy a Saturday paper to get the TV listings, can't be bothered what is going on in other peoples lives I'm only interested in me, my family and friends.
Although if it wasn't for the papers initially we woud not know about the MP's expense fiddles as the TV media appears to wrapped up in the political parties pockets.

The unspeakable writing the unbelievable. Newspapers are really only the written version of "Jeremy Kyle" on the TV.

And it took how many millions of public money to come to that rather obvious set of conclusions?

Millions wasted for the vanity of politicians and the not so famous with a few exceptions and it looks as though it will all be for nothing. In these days of austerity it could have been spent so much better.

Do buy a paper a day ( South Island Paper) and only read what I want to read. Deaths, Motoring news and business news. Letters to the editor No way. very selective what I read and what I want to believe.

We never buy the paper except occasionally the local rag where news is related to local stuff. Even the news on TV is twisted to suit some political agenda and then becomes unbelievable.

We never buy a newspaper preferring instead to read one online.
The easiest to get are The Daily Mail and the Telegraph.......both free and able to keep us occupied for an hour every morning.
