Rebekah Wade and the abandonment of human decency
Well yesterday as I drove my daughter Kaye home from her piano lessson, I found myself listening to Charles Kennedy making a courageous statement concerning his alcohol difficulties. As anyone who has known people who suffer from alcoholism will be aware, facing up to the problem is a huge step yet a step that is necessary for any recovery to be possible. Charitably minded people will wish Kennedy well on his road to health.
I say 'charitable people.' This description does not include the rag that is best described as Satan's spawn where a very attitude is to be found in its editorial entitled "Drunkem Fool". Here the Sun's editor Rebekah Wade shows herself to be itterly devois of any milk of human kindness. Not that we should be surprised. after all it was Wade who sanctioned a headline calling boxer Frank Bruno bonkers after Bruno had suffered a nervous breakdown. In that case, human decency was abandoned in order to boost circulation. This time apart from the fact that the Scum is devoid of any decency, the motive for malice may well be that Mr Kennedy did not share their penchant for mass murder in Iraq.
But am I alone in detecting a little bit of hypocrisy in all of this? None of Mr Kennedy's critics have suggested violence on the part of Mr Kennedy when inebriated. And here there is a contrast with the conduct of a certain Miss Wade who not so long ago after a night out drinking with amongst others David Blunkett, assaulted her partner Ross Kemp with the consequence that she was arrested at 4am in the morning. Oh, and don't forget that this happened not so long after Miss Wade led a campaign against domestic violence including that directed against men. Surely Miss Wade is clearly an Olympian when it comes to hypocrisy.
Of course, Miss Wade made light of her arrest and the next day it was but a joke in the Sun. By why be surprised? Miss Wade's career in journlaism has been based on base standards. She gets the money whilst she breaks the lives of others.
It is questionable whether Mr Kennedy will hold on to his position. One can but wish him well for the future. Miss Wade is a different kettle of fish. As I will show in coming weeks her career is based on journalistic fascism. If she wishes to take a one way journey to Hell that is her problem. But I submit that the damage she does to othere is a problem for all of us. I have reached the conclusion that her so called newspapers is in total opposition to the Gospel of Christ and to any philosophy based on decency. The time has come for the churches to encourage their people to boycott this evil rag. It is a truly sick publication that has a self righteousness that would make the most conceited Pharisee (actually in the main a misrepresented group) blush. It just isn't fit for decent society!
