• Ted Mead in Comments: Hmm - There seem to be a few posts about TT being biased or political. I wonder what they expect from an online forum - the mind boggles!?!? Essentially opinion is politics. It’s as simple as that! Put two people in a room together and in most cases you will have politics. The reason Andrew Wilkie gets a fair run is because he works hard, is willing to put himself out there, and tackles the big issues. The majority of TT readers probably agree with his view, and if you don’t then you have politics.
