the guardian  a failed paper

The Guardian, a failed paper?

The middle-class ladies, in the sunny pages of the Guardian a newspaper that used to be on the mild left
but when scolded quickly moved to the middle of the road where the paper where knocked over by the dramatic tide of feminism and became self-conscious
existing in fear of being called anti-feminist which reminded me of the days some years ago when the paper was called anti-Semitic after a critical article
of Israel's behavior in the occupied Palestine.
The ladies' concerns were if one should forgo the afternoon cool glass of white wine or stick to the pesky regulation of 21 units a week.
The serious illness of alcoholism was safely overlooked
as it has little to do with the readers.
In the same newspaper, an article about working-class poverty, can anyone wrap their head around the fact that
many workers are so badly paid their children go hungry?
They are there in our midst, the poor, the hungry the desolate, and totally forgotten, we ignore them to our peril, and they will arise, getting up from the floor ready
to turf us out of existence.
As for the Guardian, it can turf out the woke people who hire new writers and be irreverent again
