He was a writer in Hot Press? Really? Waters is, of course, another of their alumni.

I saw what seemed to be the video and whilst it looked a bit dickheady it definitely didn't look like "Terrified for your life help help" kind of shit. I mean, what I saw of it he blocked her in for about 5 seconds, it put me in mind of Moan Burton and her false imprisonment shit. Like if that's a terrifying assault, how would you even leave the house every day. Still dickhead move by yer man like, totally unnecessary, but fuckin hell it's not like you've been cornered on a dark street by 9 lads all lookin to batter you.
When it's regular occurrences small things add up but I think blocking in a women for any amount of time is hugely wrong.

the friend of a friend used to be opinion ed in the irish times. he mentioned that for all his faults, waters never needed much subbing; his prose was economical and there were few syntax or spelling errors. others were far worse.

She's not wrong about Twitter informing "ethics" of the media though. Which is something that is resoundingly depressing. Has anyone also noticed a springing up of independent news publications the last while? I would be interested in your thoughts....

.....I saw one called Persuasion, for example. I have always had subscriptions to more traditional newspapers (since subscriptions became a thing) of publications like The Irish Times, New York Times, Guardian....but have noticed some new independent online-only sites. Anyway, just wondering if anyone has come upon them much, and if anyone has any recommendations?
