No I do not dismiss the reporting in the Guardian, it stands up for a lot of good causes and always has going back to Peterloo.

You know full well this is only the 2nd time, and the usual replies from the usual posters. I bet if it was the D/Mail, you would be all over it. And before you ask no I do not read it.

So it's ok then criticise other companies for their past, but don't mention their own. Sorry you've lost me with your last line.

Not sure they know of the Guardians origins and where the money came from, or choose to turn a blind eye to it which is worse as I am sure you agree.

No I do not trust it at all, was wondering what was thought of the 'past' of another paper. Like I said obviously Bernie is not a very pleasant person.

Of course I do, Bernie is obviously harbouring very racist views.

Sprucie what's your take on the history of your beloved newspaper? Not looking to cause a stir but your paper is used a lot to justify a lot of opinions on this site.

You missed left wingers out of that list Sprucie, but then in Ipswich we haven't really had one since Clive Woods

Sprucie I agree with everything you have said in this post barring your last phrase about coming home to roost. That sounds very much like a few years ago when there was riots in London and a senior politician stated "the police got a good kicking". The amount of work that has been done by the police to improve is commendable, sometimes one person can undo all the good work, that happens in all walks of life. Don't tarnish them all with a catch all comment, we all may need them sometime.

I think we all know where you were going with that one.
I will tell you a little story about my brother in law who travelled up to Liverpool one evening arriving in the early hours. He got stopped twice in the space of around 20 minutes, his crime was driving a Ford Escort XRi. On both occasions when he checked out who he was, the answer he got was "up here people out driving one of these cars early in the morning usually do not own it".
So sometimes they should not make assumptions I guess, but they really do have a hard job to do which will have been made harder due to the events in the US and now Ipswich.
As a side note the salary being quoted on here is way off the mark, very very low 20's when you start gradually rising with yearly increments, to no where near the upper figure quoted unless you rise through the ranks.
I do think the choice of words by the female officer was inappropriate but we do not see what was said before the camera phone started. I think that during the interview with the senior Police officer on the news she alluded to there being a current operation in the area.

Don't put yourself down, I'm sure its easy to get out of this league upwards not downwards. Most on this site think it is anyway.

Dam it Sprucie I would be glad I renewed my season ticket if that had happened. You sure we can't persuade you?

All been done through google meets, its worked quite well for me. I think next year it may be split between classroom and online, to keep up with social distancing.
