Letters to the Editor

It's now well over a week since the events in Paris, and yet, rather than easing off the often hysterical coverage, it's now escalating into a very worrying tone. This non-stop fear-mongering by our government and media must stop.

At times like these, politicians start to thrive on the attention they're receiving and go on an all-out power trip. A 'Tony Blair' if you like. They spread fear in the name of righteousness.

More surveillance and additional terror laws will ultimately be used against us, and will destroy the society that our so-called leaders claim to want to protect.
