Digital Spy axes General Discussion forum

I had reason the other day to look at a DS thread from 2005 or so (looking for information on a radio station from that time), and it struck me how nice and civilised it all was compared to the current s***show. I think it's a change in wider society, not just a "DS thing".

GB News

Neil's rants on Twitter about "woke warriors" and the "censorious left" don't bode well for GB News' stated aim of impartiality.

As someone who lives far from the so-called "metropolitan elite", the idea that all of us who live a distance from London are "fed up" of things like treating immigrants with dignity, LGBT+ rights and basic decency to everyone leaves a fairly bad taste in my mouth, as does the idea that those are somehow metropolitan values that we don't share. We are not all champing at the bit for a right-wing news channel that moans endlessly about "woke". Most of us have got better things to think about.

This channel seems wholly unnecessary, a response to a "problem" that only the originators of GB News seem able to perceive. I'd say that if someone proposed a left-wing news channel, too.
