Those Naughty Firefighters

I’ve been taking a look over some of the tabloids relating to the firefighters/cruising story talked about earlier this week on the blog. Interestingly, it was generally reported without much spin and opinion. here is the Sun for example: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article290872.ece

Can you guess the publication that got itself in a real frenzy? Oh yes, the good old Daily Mail as evidenced by Richard Littlejohn: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/columnists/columnists.html?in_article_id=485714&in_page_id=1772&in_author_id=322

The comments from Daily Mail readers also make interesting reading: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=485404&in_page_id=1770&in_page_id=1770&expand=true#StartComments

Local Tory councillor Spud Murphy is campaigning to overturn the firefighters decision (what a name!): http://www.pinknews.co.uk/news/articles/2005-5657.htmlThis follows some senior figures in the Tory trumpeting it’s approach to gay issues at the recent Tory party conference: http://www.pinknews.co.uk/news/articles/2005-5651.html
