For the purpose of this debate 'additional political news media' shall be defined as media in which an opinion is applied to a political event.
Political news media is when an news sources reports a poltical event, for instance a news channel announcing the passing of an Act of Government or records and footage of the Government in action, thus additional political media is a programme that takes political events and discusses them, often with individuals applying their own biases, this could range from comedians commentation on panel shows to a debating programme with a varity of experts.
The term 'democracy' and 'democratic' can also have differing interpretations across the globe, thus for the purpose of the debate it means getting the population and electorate more involved in politics, this could be evidenced by voting statistics (etc.).
I'm aware that political media varies in all countries, same nations may have a larger government involvement in media than others, therefore it would help if you could state in your argument specific examples to support your view. Additionally it is acknowledged that primary sources of politicial news will often be biased in more subtle manners, however it would be preferred if this primary sources did not become the focus of the debate.
Either way, I hope this debate will be a nice break from the religious related argument tsunami this site seems to be drowning in.
To stroke kindly a cat and then throw it into a wheelie bin is such an extraordinary piece of behaviour that you immediately think the person must be mad.
And if Mary Bale - who apparently is a cat-lover and owned one as a pet when she was a child - had not been caught on CCTV committing this cruel act, it would be difficult to believe she was capable of it.
The 45-year-old, who is unmarried, lives what appears to be an unremarkable life: she worked in a bank and once sang in a church choir.
Why? Mary Bale is caught on CCTV stroking the cat and then throwing it into a wheelie bin
But there she is, in a clip which has been watched by thousands on YouTube, patting a cat she found walking on a wall, before suddenly, with one swift movement, dropping the bewildered animal into a wheelie bin.
What could drive a person to commit such a seemingly senseless act of casual cruelty? And how should we, as a society, treat someone who would do such a thing?
Of course, the huge public outburst against Miss Bale is understandable. Yet there are those who seem to think that hanging, drawing and quartering would be too good for her. Most civilised people would probably pause a moment before going quite that far.
There's no doubt that what she did was an extremely abnormal act. It's not something that most of us would ever be tempted to do.
To illustrate what I mean, imagine you are in a jeweller's shop when you see a diamond ring glittering on the counter while the assistant's back is turned.
If there weren't any security cameras, I'm sure that the idea would pass most of our minds to sweep it off the counter into our pockets. But 99 per cent of us would resist the urge because of the social and legal inhibitions that are deeply ingrained in our souls.
Now, imagine seeing a cat on a wall near a wheelie bin. Our first reaction isn't usually: 'What fun it would be to pop it in the bin! But I'd better not, it would be wrong.' Such a strange thought wouldn't even occur to most of us. It's so weird.
I got an A* in my maths GCSE so to scelebrate i made this debate
real books : real books
e-books: downlaodable books you can by of the internet and read using a computer
i made this debate because the British governemnt want to cut back on spending so they might shut down the libraries :(
this whole "lets unite" idea is ridiculous so we should just give it up and start taking over places again
it would help the countries of europe a lot and its not like africa is doing anything with its freedom so it should be right thats the rest of us get to take it over, also britain should have a chance to become great again and it wont be acheived by joining the eu
of course there will be a few fights here and there but thats the fun of it all
