Opinion pieces

So from time to time, I find myself reading, watching or listening to the news and thinking "sheesh, that's sensationalist twaddle". So I've decided to vent in this section of my site in order to maintain my own sanity and perhaps to provide a less sensationalist opinion (backed with facts and links if appropriate) to the stories that I find most out of sync with reality.

The sorts of things I'd like to explore here are often controversial in nature. They are also often areas of our lives that politicians and the media are well and truly feeding on a frenzy of public doubt or emotive response to get votes (politicians) or sell news (the media).
