I think The Sun are spot on with this…
…in fact, I think they should go one step further, and restore this memorial to it’s rightful glory in the courtyard or foyer of their own building.
That’d show them!
(Quite surprised that this was on the front page, though. Apparently David Cameron left a big official looking briefcase on a train, and I’m sure there’s other stuff going on, as well.)

Thinking about Chris Morris a lot at the moment, for some reason.

“I’m a creep,” Thom York tells me as he sips tea fresh from the pot, staring vacantly though a misty window. “I’m a weirdo.” He confirms the statement later when he picks something from his ear and eats it, but first he shakes himself from the distraction.

La Règle du Jeu (1939) - Memorable quotes
I read this quote minutes before hearing about the possible internet blackout of Egypt. If what we’re hearing is right, it’s horrible, and at least the video of the protester getting shot is unambigous.
I haven’t seen this movie, but that quote puts into words something I genuinely, whole-heartedly believe, and something I seem to find myself repeating, one way or another, a lot these days.
Pretty soon my twitter timeline is going to explode with people who understand everything that is going on completely.
I know this because they have been exactly the same about every single other outrage that has happened, large or small, in the last couple of years. I love a lot of these people to bits, but I already know it is going to frustrate me.
False equivalences imminent. Prepare for painful confirmation bias. Expect return & subsequent re-disintegration of irony.
My hope, the way it always is, is that it could be worse.
No Sleep 'Til Brooklands: Liz Jones: murder, disappointing bars and buttons
@2 years ago with 1 note
Of all the the journalists in Britain you would want to write about the Joanna Yeates murder, Liz Jones is probably nestling somewhere near the bottom of the list. You might think, after all, that Jones’ penchant for consumerist superficiality and ill-directed moaning doesn’t quite carry the gravitas required to really deal with such a case of genuine human tragedy and emotion. Well, you’d be right.
Great take-down of Liz Jones’ truly awful - in every sense - article about Joanna Yeates.
