|Charities/Pressure groups making mole hills into mountains|
at 14:08 20 Jun 2013
Story in the press this morning about the UK Parkinson's charity complaining that Kanye West has used lyrics in his latest song which are something like "when we stopped I was so excited, I was shaking like I had ****ing parkinsons".
They are claiming disgust and that it's an insult to suffers, but is it really...?
I think that these institutions (and pressure groups) simply feign disgust in order to draw attention to their causes and get some free publicity. If they were really worried about it they'd not have said anything and it would have been forgotten by the time it had left the charts.
What are your thoughts on this type of marketing/press coverage?
|Edin Hazard's Wages|
at 13:56 24 Jan 2013
I have seen a number of posts today - twitter/FB and on here, all referring to Hazard's wages.
Why do people keep referring to them as if they are related to whether he's guilty or not?
If he was paid less would it have made his actions any less stupid, or is jealousy now a mitigating factor when judging peoples actions? Have the courts been told?
