In that it doesn't report all the news, just the bits can conform to the agenda of the "right-on PC crowd". It has long been noticeable while Terry Wogan had the early-morning shift (before the execrable Chris Evans took over), that anything slightly "off" as far as the BBC lefties were concerned would be on the 07.00 hrs news, Terry would then be allowed to poke fun at it if he wished (I like Terry, but he did have his uses for the rulers), and it would then disappear from the news, never to be heard again. I lost count of the times I noticed this happening. It was normally something actually quite important but only a minority interest story, such as the rubbishing of Global Warming.In what way is the BBC not a mainstream news organisation?
Calm down matey.As a newbie you are perhaps not aware of how it goes around here.Nothing wrong with your post, just a bit of fun noting the length of time between the op and your post.I've made my post. I wasn't aware of the forum prior to making, it changes nothing, just giving my opinion, and if I had written eight months ago, it would have been the same. Don't like it? Not relevant? Don't read it.
Maybe someone in a Ghillie suit and a 12bore would put them off once they're picking birdshot out of their arses.Digging it up and placing it elsewhere is not an option, the people of Ballysillan raised and still raise thousands of pounds for it's installation and maintenance. The families and friends in Scotland raised and still raise thousands of pounds for its installation and maintenance. No one actually has the authority to remove it. I use the term we as in the Royal we, are fully aware that it will be vandalised, desecrated etc and that's why funds are raised on a continuing basis. The moronic thugs that carry out their vile acts says so much more about them and their hatred than it ever will about common decency. As a matter of interest there are those in Scotland who take great delight in the desecration of this and other memorials to the fallen, these people (actually born in Scotland) wholeheartedly supported and still support the IRA etc.
We can't and won't give in to these mindless cretins, many of the people carrying out the vandalism etc, weren't even born when these three soldiers (our boys) as we affectionately refer to them, were brutally slain. I make no apology for any part of this submission but hope that I have given some insight into depth of feeling and hurt that still exists on this anniversary of such a terrible and tragic event.
