Bloody Do-Gooders [Apr. 3rd, 2013|11:42 am]

A.N. Wilson (in the Mail, where else?) blames the Philpotts on The Welfare State. Apparently no-one lived fecklessly or killed their children before that well-meaning but naive Lord Beveridge loused things up....

I hate the Mail, a fickle paper of disrepute

But if we didn't read it how would me know what the bastards were thinking?

I saw that too.

Why does anyone read the daily freakin' malice?

It has some good picture galleries.

And- call me any names you like- I have a certain regard for Peter Hitchens.

Why doesn't he go and write for somewhere that isn't hatemonger in ordinary to the masses?

Perhaps no-one else will have him.

He's a maverick- he doesn't really fit in anywhere. He's deeply conservative on some issues, very liberal on others.

A libertarian by the sound of it.

In truth I haven't purchased a newspaper since the Guardian betrayed and outed a trans friend of mine courtesy of that nasty little git David Batty some years back.

Sound at all familiar?

I don't think he'd accept that label- or any other, really. That's what I like about him- he's a truly independent thinker.

I don't pay for papers either; I read them on line (because I'm a cheapskate).

I don't remember that case. And I had to google David Batty to find out who he is. I guess you mean the journo not the footballer.

Apparently the Sun "hope this is the last time the State unwittingly subsidises the manslaughter of children".

I never see the Star. I sometimes get to see the Sun in our local chippy.
