Nope, not at all. It's how one goes about it that's usually the problem. And for some reason it's a real struggle for the one note dickheads who currently have the whip hand in the Labour Party.

So you saying that, in today's hypersensitive society, it just isn't done to comment 'I see the murderous four-be-twos have slain another bunch of ayrab kiddies'?

PC gorn etc. I despair truly I do.

Practical advice of this quality is why the visiting the bored is worth enduring whiteouts, globus and any number of smug Kiwis.

I suppose with the #botcotttheguardian trending briefly it's a good place to show this graph which shows how little it take sto trend on twitter and therefore shouldn't be taken seriously, but sadly is, especially by the media:

Only 1000 tweets to trend:

Well if that is a twitter storm I'd rather be a more scared of a stiff breeze.

Do these people not know that 97% of the country has been boycotting the Guardian for over a century now.

We all should be giving a shit, whatever part of the political spectrum you belong to.

Just imagine if the only outlets for 'news' were The Sun and the Daily Mail.

#BoycottTheGuardian is being organised by The Canary, which is a sort of Breitbart for lefties, because of the Guardian's coverage of the Corbyn antisemitism stuff

This is the state of British politics, where lefties consider the Guardian to be too right wing :lol:

Not really tbh, it's a liberal paper and during the 80s and 90s it staunchly supported the move to the
right of the LP with its support of Kinnock and Blair and the marginalisation of the left in the LP.
It has never been a fan of hard left politics.

Just imagne believing all the internet, television and other broadcaster news would disappear, that'd be a really dumb thought.

The print media (and the MSM in general) is fundamental in providing the infrastructure for formal news gathering.

Bloggers and social media are mostly informal and can spew out any old shit for you to lap up and post with no requirement for fact checking or other ethical considerations.

The slow death of the print media seems to have completly passed you by. The broadcast MSM in the UK is left wing bias.

By trolls I may mean right wing Gladstonian Liberals.

Athough, by definition, people in the centre aren't revolutionary, there really needs to be a bit of a mobilisation of centrists or they will be shut out of power, despite representing the majority of people.

Hasn't that always been the way? Confirmation bias is just considerably easier today thanks to the t'internet where you can filter out anything that doesn't support your world view - hence why our politics is becoming increasingly polarised.
