Re: Why do we get so hung-up about nudity in this country?
Actually no. If the royal was caught shagging a goat, that is newsworthy. If an mp was caught in a hotel room with nekkid ladies, thats still an invasion of privacy, assuming they were of age etc.
If it isn't illegal or contrary to their statements then it isn't newsworthy. As much as I think Prince Harry is a grade A tit, he deserves privacy just like you and I do.
The press bleating about censorship is bollocks of the highes order. It isn't news they are being stopped from printing, its shyte. They want to print as much sensationalist, made up, shyte as they can. They aren't interested in keeping the government, other governments or companies honest by uncovering actual scandals. They want to sell pictures of tits. The phone hacking scandal shows exactly how low they will stoop to invade peoples privacy. A large portion of the blame must fall on the morons who buy the tatrags in the first place.
As for your fix for the economy, sounds pretty much bang on. It would only work if our unions held down wages like the German unions did over the past 10 years though (not a bad thing, it worked very well for them).
