Peter Preston, former editor of the Guardian, lost interest at this point.
The Guardian is a leftwing red-ragging communist newspaper.
l wonder how much money he has been paid by Argentine lntelligence to make his traitorous remarks.
Anyway, once oil production gets into full swing, money will not be a problem & it won't cost the British government a penny.

A source of great regretPeter Preston edited the Guardian when Foreign Office clerk Sarah Tisdall was jailed for leaking secrets. He explains why he strongly believes that journalists must put pragmatism before principle

Govts. can buy jobs, like NL did in Newcastle to prop up the Labour vote when they 'Tax & Spend' as they did for years.
Now the ordinary people of the UK have got to work and pay taxes for 'Bambi Blair' the incompetent Brown and their sycophants past lifestyles.
Unfortunately, unemployment will get worse in the meantime before it gets better.

Those who say Europe is in a crisis of it's own making,nothing to do with UK,need to explain why unemployment is rising.Was the UK a contributor to poor economic management and therefore also to blame or not.
Are those who don't want to work to be deducted, along with those not looking for work, and then those without skills and those under 1.7metres all to be deducted.Well statistically there's only 3.5% unemployed,the lowest since people last voted ; )

But Peter Preston's views are highly suspect as he was the editor of a commo newspaper. The man is a traitor. Everything he said was soaked up by you Argentines without question because its what you wanted to hear.
You can have him.
We don't need him weakening our gene pool.

In 1983, the paper was at the centre of a controversy surrounding documents regarding the stationing of cruise missiles in Britain that were leaked to The Guardian by civil servant Sarah Tisdall. The paper eventually complied with a court order to hand over the documents to the authorities, which resulted in a six-month prison sentence for Tisdall, though she served only four. I still blame myself, said Peter Preston who was the editor of The Guardian at the time, but he went on to argue that the paper had no choice because it ”believed in the rule of law

Isn't that the british malady that you easily recognise in every criticism of the British.I know it is.
Which part of it didn't you like(a)an argentine posting it,(b)the state media being the vehicle of transmission.
Your choice and I'm sure you've already made it.(paranoia)

Like sr Think, you presume too much.

What do you think of Hugh O'Shaunessy reporting for the Guardian?
Incidentally,did you see the employment situation in USA is improving

We will be happy to live our lives without Argentina.
l only read the Guardian rarely & then only to see what devilment the communists are up to.
Forewarned is forearmed.
The USA has to improve, it has a lot of resources in material & people.
Glad you are not upset.Try waving a wand and wish there was no Argentina.It won't come true because wishing doesn't make things happen.Dec 18th, 2011 - 01:05 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
