Comments: G8 Summit: Leave it to the moonbat British press to paint Georgia as backward

Just last night the France2 news was complaining that the Georgians were gouging them with fees for renting tables, internet connections & so on (i.e., too smart). Maybe the Independent & France2 should coordinate their views to avoid confusing their sophisticated European viewers.

I was flabbergasted to read the ridiculous article full of totally unsavoury language and downright false statements made by E Jane Dickson in her 'article' "Lockdown on Sea Island". To use such language as 'shit' 'shiny turds' etc shows her lack of courtesy towards her readers. To then slip in ridiculous statements such as 'Sea Island as in cotton, as in slaves),' show she has not bothered actually researching her 'story'. Should I refer to London as 'London as in home of terrorists, as in German child murderers of 1944' and so on? It would be regarded as a lack of manners and very poor reporting.

The majority of homes on Sea Island are like the majority of homes in the Scottish Highlands where I live - empty most of the year and owned by people who live far away. No-one is being forced to leave according to my friend who lives there and indeed she says that apart from the increase in helicopter noise there are few signs of the G8 conference. Obviously there will be hassle but hey we get that weekly in Inverness when the local team are playing!

I presume the E in Jane Dickson name is 'Ernest' as in earnest seeker of truth but too bone idle to actually go and find it and make up stories instead. She would be in good company with Caroline Hawley of the BBC in her hotel in Baghdad who reports so insightfully on incidents that occurred hundreds of miles away...

That's another reader lost.
