• Funnily enough the reasons you've said you dislike The Times are the same reasons why I dislike The Guardian. But I'm generally happier not reading either, they're both goady by design.

    More and more I find my consumption of news is just a proxy for anxiety I feel about my own life and my own, limited, sphere of influence. E.g. last week as I mentioned, eight family members including four over 70s and two NHS workers were on holiday in Wales. I was convinced there'd be a Covid outbreak but apparently it didn't happen! My circular COVID browsing definitely shot up as a form of dissociated distraction, however.

  • A guardian journalist exposed the Windrush scandal.

    Well these are not ideal times, nasty virus, climate change... Not so strange to be anxious. Take care and all that, the depression threat on this forum may be helpful to vent?

    I do read it, though I avoid newspapers that boil my piss as I regular turn the air blue walking past the newspaper stand in the spar.

    Last time I watched the news Cameron was on and my poor TV got a rage of expletives so that was that ;)

  • Thanks. Best thing I could do is really get back into cycling! 2019 and before I was cycling 50-100 miles a week around London and now I'm not I can see that it really did me good. I should stop reading stolen bike thread, bike jacking threads, etc, as a justification for staying indoors / on phone.
