  • Comment on: Is banning Trump from the UK the most popular political cause ever? It looks that way

    Barry Stevens's comment | Fri, 11 Dec 2015 12:40 pm

    Well said, Ian
    If the petition in support of Trump was promoted as much as the anti one, I suspect the supporters might well be in the majority
    But, with a left-wing agenda in the media and a wet liberal Political class all controlling the agenda, what should we expect?

    Why can't you report the news rather than add your spin to it?
    Does this article really require you to use emotive/derogatory language such as "As billionaire businessman Mike Ashley rolls around on piles of money"? - is it a crime that he's made money?
    Also, re the 6 strikes_and-out rule, please explain what's so wrong in taking workers to task over such things as Errors (what is so wrong with demanding quality?); Time wasting (they're meant to be working); Excessive chatting (again, this is a workplace, not a social gathering); Excessive/long toilet breaks (comes under the category of time-wasting, I feel); Horseplay (not acceptable in the workplace); Using a mobile phone (I know some people will consider this is a human right, but they're meant to be working)
    Why can't you present a balanced article, one that displays the professionalism that should be expected of a journalist? Why do you have to slant it all to your personal antagonism to success?

  • Comment on: Over 20,000 people to march on Downing Street on 12 September over refugee crisis

    The voice of reason needs to be raised to counter this attempt to influence politicians and pubic attitudes
    The world's problems will nit be solved by mass migration - a) the numbers are simply too massive and b) the problem regions will still exist and c) mass migration will cause untold problems in the UK and the other European countries trying to resettle so many people
    Problem is I don't see how that voice of reason can make itself heard
