No Time

Posted in Other Stuff by 200

I reported back on 17th July, that I no longer intended to purchase the Sunday Times. To save you flipping back to find out why, it was because they thought it was acceptable to expose Nightjack, something I had fundamental objections to some of which not even to do with the fact that I am, or rather was,  a police blogger.

Almost a month later I’m happy to report that the folk who run the newspaper haven’t had a single penny from my hard earned wages, nor will they in future.

There are so many things in life we can’t do anything about & a whole bunch of other stuff we probably can do something about but choose not to. I like to think if someome has pissed me off to such a degree that it’s worth doing something about it, then whatever I can do, however small, is probably worth it.

I don’t suppose my £100 a year for a copy of the Sunday times, means a great deal to the publishers in the great scheme of things. But, with any luck & a following wind, I’m planning on being around for another 40 years or so. £4,000 is an extra lovely little holiday in Europe I can have, courtesy of the Sunday Times.
