I'm sorry, Sluffy, but the fact that there are right-leaning nutters does not in any way excuse the disingenuous army of pathetic excuse-making leftyspecs charlatans.
And it is true that there is a world where the narcissistic pursuit of vanity and self-interest dominate and integrity and morality mean very little but there is also another world comprised of decent enquiring souls even if they are invisible or irrelevant to large sections of the present day media.
There's wrong on both extremes.
Both extremes push each other to be even more extreme in their actions and thoughts in the future - so it is going to get even worse in time to come.
The only way to stop the madness is to call them both out, simply because if you don't people just assume you yourself are on the opposite side of the political divide to them and so have an agenda against them.
The world is full of good people but we've got to an age where speaking out can seriously damage you (and your family's) health.
Maybe it isn't that bad for us yet but who would have thought that nutjobs in America would storm their version of our Parliament and looking for the then Vice President of the USA, to lynch him!!!
But it happened.
I'm also sick to death of seeing everyday left wing bollocks about 'I Kissed a Boy' or Trans rights, or Drag Shows, or Just stop Oil, or....
It's just endlessly in your face all the time.
I don't care if people want to live their life as gay, or Trans, or call yourself non-binary or they/them - just get on with it and live your lifes how you please and leave the rest of us to get on with ours - ta very much.
But it simply doesn't happen.
We have very, very dodgy politicians these days, undermining faith in the government and parliament, and we have a society that behaved nationally as it did during Covid.
We deserve each other really - don't we?
We've got to a King Canute moment, where someone needs to try and stop the tide of sewerage swamping what honesty, integrity and social values we have left and Canute failed in his day and I can't see anyone doing any better this time around, can you?
Rashford has (or rather his financial advisors have) manipulated the system in a way that it should never have been and some who should know better like Maguire has turned a blind eye to it,
Yes it is wrong and yes it should be stopped but who is going to do it.
The answer is no one.
The 'horse' of doing the right thing has long since bolted from the stable and there's more chance of finding Shergar than finding it, bringing it back and securing the stable door once it has returned.
That's how it is now - whether we like it or not.
I don't believe in fighting battles I can't win.
Best of luck with your crusade against Marcus but I rather think it is a lost cause already.
The harsh truth is no one cares about anything much these days other than themselves.
