my wife pointed out how cheerful and friendly people are being at the moment,and i have to agree[not only through fear!] we reckon that as we're doing well in the games,the media has found happy positve stories not only sell papers but cheer up the populace.gangs,murders,hoodies,thieves,cheats,powe r abuse,obese kids,killer dogs and all the other constantly negative and anti-us crap stories are being shoved into the background where they belong. be nice but veerrryy unlikely if it stayed like that.we might all end up with a positve outlook and turn this country round away from the self centred self pitying dangerous workshy fat and useless place the media gleefully,and i think,criminally portrays

The media has a lot answer for I try to not look at the news and only hear about things through friends and colleages.....maybe I live in a state of denial but I dont want to attract negatives into my life.........I hope this positve state stays within this country it would be nice if it did.;)

I try not to read newspapers which are all politically biased, preaching to their own converted target audiences.

I listen to 5 live for sports and some news, but get a lot of news from friends or even reading forums like this one.

I guess "news"papers are there to sell themselves and if they can get sales through being negative, telling half truths, or hyping stuff, they are going to do it.

I listen to a talk show at work everyday, they discuss topical issues and people phone in, today i listened to a lady who has been caring for her husband for the last 10 years, she now has been diagnosed a from of cancer, that needs specialist treatment, which she has been refused, due to the cost, the topic before that was how Cameron is sending 11 billion to foreign aid, here's the lady putting Cameron on the spot today,

The Government loves these games. Whilst all this hysteria is on they are putting out dis-likeable things they want to do. The smokescreen is perfect for dropping the changes to the house of lords, changing the council tax rebates to save Government money next April etc; etc:
