They've apolgised completely. Quite admirable in a time when people form rabid, unwavering views on just the slightest bits of information.

It's not envy is it? Just unthinking, wrong headed hatred. It's terrible that anyone thought it, let alone got it through an editorial meeting and published it.

Pretty much everyone left or right that I've seen commenting has condemned it.

Yes, strangely enough although his political skills were found so wanting, Cameron seems to be a reasonably decent human being. How quickly things change.

As I said, some people form rabid, unwavering views on just the slightest bits of information.

I think he means the apology is admirable (and necessary) - not the original statement, just in case that wasn't clear..

It's shoot. They should never have published it and have rightly taken the editorial down, but it clearly doesn't mean that this is how all lefties think or feel in the same way that the some of the things in the Mail or the Telegraph don't reflect how everyone on the right thinks or feels.

That the apology were necessary at all is the issue. Not that that is a rabid view at all. Im surprised he felt it necessary to defend the guardians behaviour with an attack.

Not as though there is a shortage of vile right wing envy/hatred etc in the media though is there? There's a few orders of magnitude more right wing bile being published daily than the left wing variety.

And your posts say a lot about you.
Have you got instance ever had a rant about any of Katie Hopkins vile remarks? She on her own must outnumber anything in the Guardian by at least 10 to 1.

Fair point Mr. Dog, but it's not exactly news in my view. Just more evidence of what most of us already know about the Guardian.

I don't think you'll find anyone who agrees with what the guardian wrote.

At times I think the Guardian can be as bad as the Mail in its bias reporting. That said, the Guardian occasionally brings in guest writers who write outstanding pieces. I am not aware of the Mail doing anything similar.

Somebody in their editorial team presumably must have agreed with it at the time for it to get published.

True, although the Daily Mail at least doesn't have that air of smug self-righteousness that the Guardian manages to emanate.
