    Default Newspapers

    Have you stopped reading the newspapers, especially the tabloids like The Times and the Telegraph, Daily Mail is the worst culprit due to the daily Doom and Gloom articles ... Britain is being talked into a BAD recession ...

    Please post examples of the doom. We like doom.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Prawny, I know you lurv Doom, however don't it make you sick after a while?

    I have two theories about you:

    1. You aren't as solvent and sorted as you make out to be and you're pretending to revell in other people's misfortune.

    2. You're sorted and haven't got anything better to do with your life than letch at unfortunate people. A dose of modesty might serve you well.

    Most of us are also comfortable, however we don't brag about it continually!

    Audience, am I right or what? C'mon!

    Stopped reading newspapers? Yes. Stopped paying attention to the news? No. Just dont tend to get it from the mainstream newspapers, especially the tabloids. The Guardian is about the only one I'd trust with a story and thats with a big pinch of salt.

    3. You drop a hook into the water and see who bites.

    I think 3 is about right. bobsmith, you're taking it all too seriously...

    I read the already hand picked doom articles each day on Motley Fool and housepricecrash. Main reason is I look after my own investment pot and want to try and time investing it. If I do it well I'll be sitting pretty, if I balls it up I'll be doing this tulip a while longer. I suspect the Dim one has a similar motivation. Oh and there's being bored tulipless doing this tulip and looking for some entertainment
