RIP Patrick Gower Political Editor 2012-2017

By   /  December 11, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  9 Comments

The fact I can do this and get away with it is a reminder of just how gutless our mainstream media really are. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
