    The Guardian has decided to openly declare itself a propaganda operation, and not a news source.

    There was a ridiculous story on 3 about a protest at a (proposed ? I missed a bit) water bottling plant. They had a huge pile of ‘single use’ bottles (speak for yourselves; the odd time when I have bought water, after forgetting my own little bottle, I have reused the bottle and then recycled it) and an obviously primed child claimed that the extra bottles would all end up on the beach. Again, speak for yourself. Most of us don’t take plastic bottles to the beach and leave them there !

    The protestors were so ill-informed or so bent on misinforming that they did their cause far more harm than good. Own goal !
