Wishy-washy news

• I am heartscalded and sickened by the lack of animated, blood sweat and tears discussions and arguments about our dire economic and social state.

Too many on-air programmes are nothing but "auld pals acts", apologising for questioning, for the hint of argument or challenge -- this is why we are in such a dire state.

Quangos which forecast good economic times ahead have and still are getting it all wrong. The figures are finite, the inflows and outflows are measurable, all scenarios can be worked out, but what we get is wishy-washy: "I don't really know, it depends, it might be, it may be, if this happens, if that happens, but I still don't know."
