Column: Beware of the many pitfalls of Facebook

It seems everyone’s a critic these days. You just have to log onto Twitter or Facebook to see folk spouting their opinions all over the place, many of them unfounded and unsubstantiated. But if you read it on Facebook then it must be true, isn’t it? I write a weekly column for a series of newspapers, but unlike most folk, I’ve received training in what I can and can’t legally say. Also, every word I write is checked over before it appears in print, but the internet gives free rein to all sort of numpties who think they can say whatever they like and it will go unchecked. Let me tell you, it doesn’t. I'm all for free speech (after all, I’ve been a journalist for 28 years) but some things are strictly out of bounds. Everyone has the power to speak freely, but with that everyone needs to write and post responsibly.

Health Column: Why central taxation will ease NHS pressure and improve quality of life
