His Master's Voice is part of a package of regional "newspapers" owned by the Guardian Media Group which has now been sold by them. I think this is terrible. The Reading Evening Post, rightly described by independent Cllr Tony Jones as formerly an integral voice to the town, could disappear! The Murdoch people think this is OK, that the future is in paid-for online content. I am not so sure, though old Rupes is rarely wrong, he didn't get where he is today etc etc. However, if you read this you will see one of the grands fromages in GMG is informing us that the sale will "secure the future of the Guardian in perpetuity". No. This is something we do not want. The Guardian, as any fule kno, is the only national newspaper to give a platform to racists, to promote genocide, and it also (though it is not the only one to do this) reports known untruths as fact. It should die horribly. So come on readers, let's save the Reading Evening Post! Because the continuing existence of Murrill's brand of secondary-modern barely adequate cut-and-paste-Salter's-press-releases-and-stick-your-head-up-RBC's-arse is a small price to pay for the demise of the Filth. Hein?
