So News International is closing the News of the World.

...OK, there's one less shitty tabloid around. That doesn't really solve anything, it's a gimmick to placate the general public and deflect attention away from Murdoch and Brooks.

The people responsible are not the hundreds of mostly innocent NotW staff. The people responsible are the ones in charge.

I'll rejoice when Rebekah Brooks gets fired, and when the Murdoch empire is sent packing from this country. Not before.

EDIT: putting this behind a cut, as it has been brought to my attention that this is distressing to some people. I would like to emphasise that this post is one that I reposted from another LJ, not one I wrote myself. (not an excuse, just explaining a little)

To [livejournal.com profile] trialia and [livejournal.com profile] featherfish, sorry for any anxiety caused and thank you for pointing it out.

This blog is not usually serious. I don't write about politics or religion or the state of the economy or swine flu, I write about TV shows and movies and sometimes I post my fanfic here, and that works just fine most of the time.

But just for now, I'd like to be serious, and implore everyone - yes, EVERYONE - to read this article by Terry Pratchett that was published on the Daily Mail's website.

I'll die before the endgame, says Terry Pratchett in call for law to allow assisted suicides in UK

It will make you think. It might even change your perspective. Just... if you're like me, and you've read every Discworld book you can get your hands on, or even if you haven't, please read it.
