  1. A completely different topic.

    In another report there is news of the RNLI rescuing more illegal migrants from the English Channel. I will make no further comment on that here.
    After the article the comments section for this topic has unfortunately been remove making any form of comment possible. I am therefore bringing the subject up in this admittedly inappropriate place, the only place I am able.
    This appears to me to be CENSORSHIP by this newspaper and therefore a reprehensible step as far as I am concerned. What ever happened to FREE SPEECH??
    Shame on you IoTG!

    • With freedom comes responsibility.
      And far too many people have posted the most irresponsible sorts of stuff on here.
      I imagine that’s why the Editor has disabled comments on those particular pieces.

    • Your free speech is not curtailed, you are free to say what you like on your own platforms, such as a personal FB page. However, I as publisher am responsible for any libellous/racist/hate comments on this site and sadly there are people who will make such comments so that is why the comment function is off. Also I am not the gazette (IOTG), I am a small, independent publisher who has no intention of paying large court fines in the event that an individual cannot keep their comments legal.

    • A person was killed on this story post space ( well done genius , thoughtless at best ) it has absolutely no connection to the topic you wish to comment on and your very misguided complaint regarding your free speech being curtailed .
      No one is curtailing your right to free speech – go ahead , crack on . publish /state your opinions far & wide – on your own platform
