I gave watching the news many years ago Tetley, I just found it too depressing and sad. I found that the things that were being aired were really beyond my control. I think my life is better off with out it I listen to the radio a bit so pick up bits from there. Although Radio 4 still has too much news for me.
"I am interested in opinions from others (even if I disagree with them), and also think that it is a good thing to be able to discuss these really very important matters with other reasonable adults. It is not always good to just agree with opinions for the sake of "peace and quiet" because that is futile and - yes, sticking one`s head in a dark place!
If there are posts on the forum that hold no interest for me, I do not join in - it is not compulsory."
Sorry can't do the quotes thing, but yes good reasonable healthy, respectful debate is a good thing. I suspect that that things on this thread took a turn towards the vitriolic and alarmist nature which won't add anything to the debate apart from get peoples back ups. Shame really but that's just people though, some just can't help themselves.
Still no leaflets but it will be compost for all of them
