Are there no depths?

… to which the Press will not sink?

Article from Saturday: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/tory-peer-with-ms-among-final-wave-of-hacking-litigants-8140127.html

David Maclean has multiple sclerosis. He came clean about this. But News International decided to investigate. Not to prove that he wasn’t capable of doing his job – but to prove that his symptoms were due to “excessive drinking” rather than a serious neurological illness.

And this investigation included (allegedly) hacking into his phone messages.

It never fails to amaze me how low the human mind can sink.

It has been suggested to me on occasion that my poor walking / bad co-ordination / slurred speech are due to the demon booze. Well, sometimes they have been, but nowadays it’s more likely to be the MS at work. I carry a card which states that I have MS, but there are always those who prefer to believe the worst.

Meanwhile, the sun is shining, the cats are both asleep and I must get on with some writing before Hubby gets home from work.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!
