Quoting Jeff Brown:
ADN's Ed. follows journalistic guidelines scrupulously and refuses to combine this with PM Costa's tree hugging this weekend. Our Ed. also refuses to score cheap points combining this story with any mention of Algarve oil extraction going ahead regardless - without an up to date, professional, verifiably independent, environmental impact assessment for this highly seismically active and disturbed geological zone. Where 7 plates of the earths crust meet.


The thought never crossed my mind....
