Ashes

Recommended Posts

Oh. My. God!

That was just sensational yesterday. 

In-cred-i-ble!! 

2 tests left, England have to win 1 and not lose the other to reclaim the Ashes.

Enjoyed listening to it on Test Match Special. Something quite unique- though the Aussies must be gutted not to get the LBW decision.

Had it been NZ, as in The World Cup, then us English fans would have felt sympathy for them.

But as it's Australia, The Ashes, and cheating bar stewards Warner and Smith then we're well happy....

Despicable is a pretty good word for it.

What else would you expect from that scummy paper?

It was the Sun article I was referring to.

"The England cricketer Ben Stokes has described a front-page article in the Sun newspaper about a family tragedy 31 years ago as “disgusting” and “immoral”.

I'd leave it Neil. Woody lives in a world where if something on "the right" makes an error it's cancelled out if something wrong is done by "the left" (or leave/remain).  Irrespective of the relative magnitude of the errors, everything levels out. But, to most people the Sun was in the wrong irrespective of what another paper did.

Maybe, they were certainly wrong in the Cameron editorial and apologised. But, you only raised it in response to a post about scummy behavior by the Sun about the cricketer Ben Stokes's family. But the Guardian's editorial about Cameron has no baring on the Stokes story. So why raise it?

No, but the link is to a story where Ben Stokes calls The Sun's treatment of his parents despicable.
