That splendid repository of old fashioned values and standards is to-day 160 years old. This beacon of excellence in an ocean of mediocrity has been produced for over a century and a half. Some record. I expect that all the many tens of thousands of forum supporters will join me in raising a glass in celebration to this custodian of right wing values.

Excellent but wishfully thought last paragraph!! But to strike a serious note I have been a reader on and off for decades and I sadly do not agree that their journalistic standards are always maintained. Do you, genuinely?

Altho' I'd never admit it to anyone, I don't always see eye to eye with some of their editorials. I've worked hard at trying to convince them to appoint me as a kind of benevolent neutral with little or no axe to grind. They have said that there is no way back from my acknowledged imput of unlimited grinding.

It may be a repository of old fashioned standards... ...but you failed to mention what was a repository of old fashioned standards and values!

Tens of thousands of forum supporters? :highly_amused: I count about ten. You, Lincoln and Charlie **** appear to have chased the rest away. :applause:

I think you failed to detect the tongue firmly inserted in the cheek. I doubt there are more than several hundred regular contributors to the entire Forum. I confess to being a sporadic Telegraph reader of a few of the columnists and some sport and arts but I don't think Lincoln 7 is.........

The next media anniversary to be celebrated is a really important one - the Daily Mail. Hallelujah ! There'll be a gnashing of teeth and a shaking of fists in the ink stained, marble halls of the Guardian.
