Ok, i've just logged on again after being cut off(grrr) and the first thing i see is news of a train crash which was caused by a car on the line ( sound familiar anyone ? ), couple of people dead, plenty hurt and i'm just thinking that if this is a copycat or Berkshire where the driver killed himself, could it have been avoided if that had been reported differently, should the media tell white lies when the truth inspires more of the same.
I could rant on about this but i'd rather let you lot do it.
Have fun :)

But i think the government is right and if they are up to something thats fine with me. We gave them power they can abuse it all they like.

Would you rather know something, or not know it at all?

You'd probably end up paranoid if you didn't, ranting that the world is against you and the Government are up to no good..! ;)

If you're joking, it's not funny or clever, and if you aren't, you're worthy of much scorn.

Lol do you really want this new generation of towies and thieving scumbags to decide things? I don't i just think a little control is needed. So much blatant crime is going on. I just think it could fix some of the problems. I know some of the hippies and peace-lovers will protest but they came be shot with rubber bullets and you can always turn a water cannon on them.

Just sort a few things out then when everyone nice and brain washed relax everything a bit.

People don't need to get the choice. People should just do as they are told. We need more armed presents on our streets with random searches to catch people breaking the law.

We need choices taken away most people are townies now in briton and i don't want it to fall in to their hands.

Media does. 'News' is 'news'.

We should have access to information that we need to know but information for example about the war and why we where doing it. It didn't make a blind bit of difference to why we went to war they wanted to shoot some peeps and nick some oil thats cool. But i don't mind why we go to war.

Me knowing wont change anything, me waiting in the cold with a banner with 'blood for oil' on wont stop someone getting shot it will however probably make me catch a cold. Which is much more relivent to me. Ok people will see me out there against the war. But i wouldn't see thouse people again.

Ok people want to know whats happening in the world thats fair enough but not all news is relivant.

In repect to this thread my post below is probably what should have been my last word on the subject but i fancied a rant.

then we start the argument of who has the right to decide what we should and shouldnt know? If the government found out that the sadam thing (lol) was all a big joke, but didnt tell us, and then we all had a vote on it, the result would be a war which had absolutely no point. (sound familiar?)

My point is that we can be easily manipulated when we dont have all the info. personally Id like to know everything. well. not EVERYTHING, but I dont know NOT knowing something ....specific.
