Alastair Campbell has joined the blogging world, his website is at http://www.alastaircampbell.org/ and already he has written a few entries of interest.
The latest blog entry is about the media, 'Spare me the myths and the whining' and I quote a section:
"I stand to be corrected (and will happily publish such a correction here) but I think I am right in saying no national newspaper editor sends their children to State schools. This is worth bearing in mind when you read the relentless diet of negativity against State schools in our national media. The same applies to hospitals. Never underestimate the ability of millionaire editors to dress up their own prejudices and anxieties in stories posing as being worthy, objective and in the national interest. How marvellous it must be for them to read day after day that State schools are all failing. Then they can feel so much better about themselves as the office driver takes the little darlings off to school."
Can't argue with that..
