Appalling Journalism – they are all human beings stupidĀ 

It does make me mad when I read a news story about an unfolding human tragedy such as the current story about the potential loss of the Air Asia flight. In there among the facts that 162 human beings might have lost there lives one dipstick reporter has indicated that there might be a Brit on board. It is as if the other 161 passengers are not as valuable. When are we going to stop this crass reporting? If the plane has crashed then it is 162 human beings, men, women and children who have possibly perished. It doesn’t matter one bit what nationality they were, they were human beings first and foremost and my concern is for all of them not one of them.

Writing to the papers – have your say part 1

Today I was incensed to write to my local paper again over the ever increasing rail fares that ordinary workers have to pay to get to the great metropolis. The fares go up each year and this year is no different. The most pathetic utterance of our local Tory MP is that they are not going up as much as before. GREAT. And he probably doesn’t pay for the increase anyway, we pay for him as well. What a joke our democracy is. The Labour and Conservative parties blame each other for their collective failures and meanwhile the people can’t even be bothered to vote. Still, we know where the increased fares are going to end up, in the grubby little hands of tricky Dickie and the two capitalist Christians. I’m tired of paying for tricky Dickie’s island in the sun and what happened to the “meek shall inherit the Earth”, certainly not with these two Christian billionaires running the transport systems. If they have any conscience they would realise that Jesus would have kicked them out of the congregation a long time ago. At least we have a little bit of media freedom. USE IT or LOSE IT.
