Nothing could have prepared us for what happened on our streets in May 2013. On a normal afternoon, when we were all going about our lives, one young brave soldier was heading back to his barracks. His name Lee Rigby. He was a son, a brother, a husband and a father.. And above all he was a soldier.
With our hands on hearts how many of us think every day about our service men and women who are fighting abroad.. men and women who just want to stay alive and come home to their families. As normal citizens we don’t know their names.. we don’t know much about those heroes that are willing to sacrifice their own lives in order to make our lives a whole lot safer. Continue reading
Again there is another incidence on Twitter where the Contempt of Court ruling has been breached.
This time Peaches Geldof tweeted the names of the two women who allowed their babies to become victims of Ian Watkins in the Sexual Abuse case being heard in Court.
Contempt of Court is a serious offence.. In April two men were convicted of Contempt of Court Continue reading
Wednesday night was the concluding part in the documentary about Myra Hindley and her untold story.
This episode concentrated on the capture of Hindley and Brady and their arrest, trial and prison sentence.
However, I was shocked… why?
Simply because these two were allowed to communicate with one another and write about their sick, wild fantasies about killing children. These two were in prison for heinous crimes, they should have been monitored and I don’t know what you think, but letters like that should NEVER EVER, leave a prisoner’s cell and if they do, they should be sent to the shredder and not to the addressee. Continue reading
Now after witnessing first hand the abuse on Twitter I did wonder how long before something would be introduced, where people can report directly from a tweet that they are being abused.
Yes Twitter have had a report abusive user forms to fill in, but unless you have the link saved as a bookmark you have to keep finding the relevant page in order to report someone.
So will the new report button work? Continue reading
Do I watch it or don’t I? To be honest I wasn’t sure if I wanted to watch the episode that was about their killings..
But how can you watch a documentary and pick and choose what parts you want to watch.. You have to watch all of the story, even the bits that you don’t want to, in order to get the full picture.
However, throughout this series we have to remind ourselves that this is the story as told by Myra Hindley in her papers that were passed onto journalist Duncan Staff after her death. Continue reading
Insensitive, inappropriate and damn right callous and most definitely an insult to those who were killed, injured and maimed, and whose lives have been turned upside down by the Boston Marathon Bombers. Yes that is how I would describe the antics of the magazine called ‘Rolling Stone’.
Yes this magazine has decided to put the surviving Boston Bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, on the cover of their latest magazine. Continue reading
Last night Channel 5 aired a documentary about the Moors Murderer Myra Hindley.. and it was about her untold story.. One of people who gave an insight into Myra Hindley and the life that Myra Hindley led, was Duncan Staff. Staff after Myra’s death was given access to her papers, which he analysed and wrote a book called The Lost Boy.
Staff wrote this in a Guardian article dated 2th June 2013: Continue reading
Idon’t know about you but when the first pictures of Saatchi gripping Nigella Lawson’s throat hit the papers and TV screens, I felt at first as if it was an invasion of privacy… But as the news emerged I then began to think, maybe it was the straw that broke the camels back.. so to speak.
One it was made public, the truth was out… perhaps it was the jolt that Nigella needed to bring her to her senses and leave a bully. Continue reading
Today blood returned to our streets, with the killing of a man in Woolwich.. at the moment there is no confirmation either way as to whether the young man killed was a soldier or not. Tonight a mum has lost her son and a family are trying to come to terms with what has happened.
As much as we all love 24 hour rolling news.. I think now is the time for the news channels not to keep streaming the video of this murderer and the killer’s chilling words. The person who has lost their life has a family and they don’t need this kind of media coverage.. As despicable as this attack is and we all agree it was horrendous and barbaric, I do think it is time now to show some respect to the family. Continue reading
Last night at 7.30pm ITV aired their Tonight programme.. and a documentary about the murder of schoolgirl Tia Sharp. Mark Williams-Thomas spent months with the family of Tia Sharp and spoke in-depth to Stuart Hazell.
Tia’s family have been criticised by many on the internet and the media reported much about the past of Stuart Hazell and his previous convictions.. I have seen accusations that they could be involved in what happened… especially her grandmother, Christine Bicknell, who was arrested and released on bail, along with Stuart Hazell… Christine was later released from her bail conditions and no charges were brought against Christine Bicknell, in fact I would go as far as saying that she was another victim of Stuart Hazell. Continue reading
So they are out… what a surprise… NOT.. Just another case of if you are wealthy and have the right connections.. and a former member of parliament you won’t have to serve half your sentencing, yet alone the full amount. Continue reading
