"...has left a sour taste in everybody’s mouth without a shadow of a doubt and it has raised serious questions in our minds. These questions revolve around the newspapers actions and who else might be implicated, but also about our own views and how this went on for so long without anyone caring.

At local rag level nothing risky goes in the paper that ..." Read review

"...has occurred everyone is up in arms even though the subject has been brought up many times before. Suddenly one man cops the full whack and blame for it all. Suddenly we all seem to care. == Sharing the blame == Firstly if you are going to buy the types of paper which blatantly flaunt the law, and glorify horror, atrocities, and celebrity status, and they continue to do so and you continue to buy then perhaps you aught to stand up and take part ..."

"...are ready to justify themselves in front of everybody. ===Let me qualify that.......=== If I think somebody has kidnapped my family and I think they are in some building, but that building is not mine, I will enter that building and rescue them. Now, if I am wrong I will face everybody, apologise and pay whatever damages the court sees fit, because I am wrong. If I am right, then I am justified to enter the building because kidnapping is worse ..." Read review
