I have a close friend who's asked me to change my profile pic to a British flag to show my support. (he's in the army) Is it wrong of me not to want to do this. Will it cause offence to him if I don't?
I can fully understand the need to share news, but for me, last nights coverage went a bit to far. It was on the news stations all night, at 10:30 they ran through what's in the papers the next day and again its coverage of everything covered in the past 24 hours. Tommorow, no bout they'll be more.
I support news coverage, of course that is their purpose, however surely they understand that alot of what they show, print will only enhance the racial/prejudice beliefs of the likes of the EDL etc.
Someone mentioned early that a machete incident happend either last week or before, i never heard about it until todays post.
The Golfer incident, again i've read about it, and again today its there again, no doubt tommoroow and alternative view.
Things like the Tornado do make interesting yet horrifying viewing, yet whilst it costs many lives, there were also some amazing stories within of survivors too. Something I would happily read about again.
But incidents like yesturdays, do they need that vast amount of coverage? does it do any good? for me it only makes things worse.
We're only a few weeks into pre-season, the play off final hasn't even been played yet! and a fair few of the players are hitting the Gym, going out on runs etc etc they've had their holidays too. Brilliant effort.
