not that I buy the paper but I know a lass who does.

Liza basically giving answers to mostly frippery of her life. Though there is mention of her next production. A baby girl. And a move north to Newcastle. I wonder - a teaching role at the Uni? I might work out with motherhood.

Good luck Liza.

I love the way no one dares mention the Telegraph(s) without some variation of the assertion that of course they'd never be seen dead with it.

And yet two years after I left the Daily, where I was the folk critic as a sideline to my main job, I still hear quite regularly from publicists, agents or artists hoping that I will do an interview, preview a gig or review an album.

But I suppose it's just their way of saying they'd never dream of reading it closely enough to know whether or not I was still there...

...it wasn't a defence, but an observation.

   Dave Swarbrick, talking about the premature obituary, told me four or five years ago that I could quote him as saying he was a keen reader of the paper provided I added that he disagreed with its politics. Which I did.

Hey - for the record - the only rag I pay for is the New Scientist. Because it tries to print the truth and succeds from what I see.
I read this Telegraph mag because I saw the words Liza and Carthy. Otherwise I read the motoring page for mention of MotoGP and there ain't none of that till next year.

Oh and the Matt cartoon is very incisive.

Now can we talk about Liza?

Why not, Mr Red?

She's my singer of the year, and made my album of the year. That's just one man's view, of course, but someone sought it in a poll and Eliza Carthy got my votes. If the students at the Uni course find her tutoring them, they'll come to little harm.

I'd better not tell you who has just been made editor of the New Scientist.

the Guardian which is also a capitalist paper,is much more cunning, and an extremely boring read,if you dont fall asleep while trying to read it.

We went to see Eliza and band last night at the Guildhall in Lichfield. She was very good indeed, although she's obviously finding touring and playing a bit too much. She was breathless and shattered. Difficult to believe that her daughter isn't due till Spring.

She also seemed to have a cold and was late starting the concert. Something was going wrong somewhere.

Tremendous band, though, and a very enjoyable evening. My sister and brother-in-law weren't particular fans at the beginning of the evening but they were by the end.

Latest news about Eliza's health

" have just been informed by her agent that Eliza has had to pull out of her tour due to ill health.

Eliza has sent the following message:

After much consideration and soul-searching I sincerely regret to announce that I am unable to finish my November tour. I've been suffering from difficulties with singing and speaking caused by a cyst in my throat and for the last couple of months have been attending Ear, Nose and Throat clinics both on the NHS and last week in Harley Street. I have begun voice therapy and physiotherapy but have been told that the cyst is being exacerbated by water retention and swelling caused by my pregnancy, and while the normal treatment for this includes anti-inflammatory drugs this is not possible at the moment and the only thing that will drastically improve my vocal health is to have my child and rest, and see the specialists again in the Spring. The physical effort of trying to sing past this obstruction is just too much for me at the moment and what I am able to produce as a sound is alarming and inconsistent and leaves me exhausted and in pain after every show. I am assured that I will return to full vocal health after my daughter is born, and would love to have the opportunity to honour my commitments then.
My apologies to everyone.
Eliza"

Wishing her all the best and a safe delivery.

The Torygraph is very right wing, but hey, this is a free country. You can't slag off a newspaper just because you dont agree with it's politics. It is a good newspaper and it's news pages try to show an objective view of the news.

Hi Penguin Egg,

I think the fact that it is a free country means that you can slag off a newspaper because you don't agree with its politics!

People have always and will forever prefer the news wrapped up in their own colours (and no matter how objective a paper tries to be it's always going to be biased to a certain point of view); otherwise there wouldn't be a market for all these different dailies.

By they way, is there an on-line version of this article? I've tried to look on their web-site and can't find anything.

Almost all the popular press are right wing. How healthy is that?

3. You can't slag off a newspaper just because you dont agree with it's politics.
The Torygraph slags of all kinds of things every day

4.It is a good newspaper and it's news pages try to show an objective view of the news.

No they don't. They have a right wing, totally committed, and particular view of the world.

Sorry, perhaps you were being ironic and I am being moronic

.....and, as I remarked to Diane in a private e-mail, a great figure from the Morning Star of the 1970s assured me, when I was leaving the Press Association for the DT that he saw no shame in working for such a paper provided you maintained your own integrity.

I leave others to judge whether I - emphatically not a Tory - succeeded in that, as a news reporter, news editor, mentor to young recruits, foreign correspondent and, yes, folk critic. I worked there for 29 years, so some would say I'm bound to be biased; they sacked me in moderately controversial circumstances, so others would assume me to be prejudiced.

Yet the fact is that I was only one of many news reporters who, along with specialists and sub-editors and others (forget the Right-wing comment gang), tried to report the news fairly - and probably did so, in the DT's better days, more often than most parts of the British press.

And more importantly, I also wish Eliza - people who know her better than most of us have long shortened it to Liza - a healthy delivery and strong recovery from her present condition.

I guess it's typical of this site that many of us soon get off the original point and ramble on about our own prejudices.

I confess, if it is at all relevant, to putting a spanner in this. I had heard, I think, the editor of the DT ranting about the BBC after the Ross / Brand chaos, more or less demanding the end of the licence fee and turning the BBC into a commercial body.

I think it is not recognised by many on the Liberal / Left that almost all Jounalists simply attempt to write the news of the day. I guess the ideologues that write the scary headlines and the editorials are the few who are employed because of their commitment?

I used to read the headlines of most papers as I waited to buy a pint of milk on my way to work. The Daily Express ran about 8 or 9 anti Asylem Seeker headlines, day after day, including "Asylem Seekers ate my Donkey". The DT was often a slightly more polite version of the same - on a whole range of issues.

I guess those of us who worked in the public sector in the 1980 essentially worked for Thatcher, did we not, although perhaps with some organised resistance?

We all wish Eliza and her baby the best. I thought the E was silent.

Well if you look back to message two - mine - or even Mr Red's opener, you'll see you weren't the first to stray off piste.

But if your perusal of the Telegraph began and ended during the short queue for milk in a paper shop, when you were also studying up to a dozen other newspapers' headlines, I can understand your confusion.

I certainly don't recall the DT's "polite version" of Asylum Seekers ate my Donkey". I DO recall hearing Robin Cook, when being interviewed by the Today programme about some health controversy during a general election, say in exaspertaion: "Don't take my word for it, read the Telegraph's account this morning."

It was my story, and no one summoned me to an office to be kicked, rebuked or sent off to political rehab.

Colin Randall is absolutely correct. The job of a journalist is to report who? what? when? where? concisely and accurately and therein journalistic integrity lies. He wasn't a leader writer and would not, therefore, have any right or reason to put a political slant on what he wrote and, as far as I am aware (either at PA or at the DT), he did not.

I should like to explain to the person called Penguin Egg that I arrived, coincidentally, in Moscow on the overnight train from Kiev on 11 September 1973 with a YCL delegation to be greeted with the news of the bombing of the President's palace in Santiago, the murder of Allende and, later, that of the New Chilean Song Movement musician Victor Jara by Pinochet's thugs. I called immediately, there on the platform where I was supposed to be making a speech of solidarity with Russian platform sweepers or something, for the Soviet airforce to get into their planes and rescue the Chilean people. No, I wasn't expelled (I don't suppose many secret police were listening) and so I was able to send first-hand reports of Soviet people's reactions to the crushing of Popular Unity by the Thatch's mates. And yes, the Morning Star used them.

As well as a crash course in spelling, I'd advise another urgent one in distinguishing left from right and good from bad in political and humanitarian terms.

(Oh, and best wishes to Eliza and get yerself back to work asap. What an excuse! Tsk, Tsk).
