That’s nothing. Over 17,000 people die from falls every year and we’re not trying to abolish gravity.
On the other side of the story over 100 million sharks are killed every year by humans. But, this is a conservative estimate, it could be as high as 273 million.
But thanks to man’s need to manipulate facts and figures to their own end we are only told half the story.
They’re not even man-eating sharks, they eat anything. They would prefer a juicy seal to a human being, but if humans dress like seals, mistakes will be made.
The referendum campaign was littered with half-truths, from both sides, I hasten to add. Then newspapers jumped in trying to influence voters.
I thought newspapers had a code where they were supposed to report facts.
The part of the populace that were looking for these facts were instead bombarded with fictions. Certain newspapers spread fear and lies about immigrants and now we can see the fruition of it.
I’m all for freedom of speech and freedom of the press but there is a little rule to this – if it incites violence and hatred then it’s against the law.
I would urge the authorities to do something about the newspapers again. And maybe have a word with that most dangerous of animals – Nigel Farage.
