In Topic: The Guardian newspaper has dropped in Rugby League coverage

The issue being I if you don't go there to read it or buy the paper don't be surprised if they drop or diminish their coverage.

It's a bit like complaining about the lack of local green grocers on the high street while doing all your shopping in Waitrose ( I was going to put Tesco but as a southern RU fan I have a certain image to maintain)

How many of the people complaining actually buy and / or read the guardian?

In Topic: NHS is the world's best healthcare system

I'm still away sur le continent for another week but even so it is strangely comforting to see that the tax, borrow and spend attitude is alive and well. Think about this, though. There are frequent clarion calls for the NHS to be free from political interference, and that things should be left to the professionals. Well, isn't that what the RCN is...a collection of professionals? It is in fact the nurses trade union and thus in common with other trades unions, will be dictating policy to Miliband. I trust you will remember that come election time.


err...except not being affiliated to theTUC then they won't Link to RCN Website

Hewett in the independent today places the blame for the England union lot's thrashing by NZ squarely on the shoulders of Ashton and Eastmond.

I expect Wiggy in the Sunday Times had a more balanced view ;-) Anyone?

Is that in the article where he says




Not that (Eastmond) was alone in being wiped out by the All Blacks, who began the game in search of a record-equalling 17th successive Test victory and achieved their hearts’ desire with two-thirds of the contest still to unfold. Freddie Burns started the match with an error of the schoolboy variety – his kick-off failed to travel the requisite 10 metres – and then missed a relatively straightforward opportunity to put England ahead with a penalty from centre field. Mike Brown, Joe Launchbury, Dylan Hartley, Billy Vunipola, Marland Yarde; each of them had their knicker-twisting moments in a grim opening quarter, and even though Burns hit the spot with two subsequent shots at goal, the respite was all too brief.


And doesn't actually mention Ashton at all?


And to be fair, Eastmond was poor in the first half and England had more shape once he'd been substituted 


Or is it the article where he says


Kyle is disappointed,” he reported. “You don’t become a bad player overnight and he has all the skills, but he was off the pace. He’s smart, though. He won’t make that mistake again


Clearly laying all the blame on...oh hang on
