But that though would have been misplaced, as the Mail has decided to keep up the pretence that Something Very Bad nearly happened in Cyprus last week: “EXCLUSIVE: Shocking video shows how police bundled paedophile suspect out of window at Cyprus resort as British parents shouted 'it's another Madeleine McCann’”. There was, to no surprise at all, no paedophile, except in the minds of the mob.
What was that about “Power without responsibility”? As true now as it was in 1931.
The tour operator actually moved anyone who asked out of this hotel which suggests that at the very least something happened.
Yes, and the "something" was that they asked to be moved.
The only thing that can be said with any certainty is that Shit-For-Brains English drunkards are in Cyprus.
It also happened to be Thomas Cook. They have taken a beating recently for how they handled the deaths of two children staying in apartments they promoted. The press can take a stance that Thomas Cook are evil and thus continue the beating.
Unfortunately some Brits intolerance of anyone who isn't British goes beyond 'gypsies'. We have just been to a hotel which was popular with Scandinavians. Intolerent Brits complained to management that there were too many of 'them' in the hotel.
Unfortunately the seed has been sown in the minds of the tabloid reading public in the UK.
Cyprus to them now is a hot bed of Romanian Gypsy child trafficking gang activity.
Chris Morris's peodophille episode of Brass Eye comes to mind.
Disappointed you deleted my earlier comment supporting your arguement in relation to the media and the story in the Times today - are you selective in what you want to allow as comments?
I have not removed any comments submitted in response to this post.
Please re-submit the comment, and I will look out for it.
@6 Your comment is on the previous post 'Tabloids’ Cyprus Shame'
I had posted earlier and saw on the site and then gone said that the Times had carried a story that the retributions had already started
Reminiscent of those gangs of "anti-peado" vigilantes who roamed the streets of Southampton a few years ago.
