It's as Katherine Parr said to Henry VIII in that amazing documentary Six The Musical: "We don't need your love". Well in this instance, we here at the Courier have decided we don't need your opinions. No no.

We here at the Courier have decided it is time for Comment to evolve, or level up as it were. Opinions are here forth banned from this section of the Courier.

What has motivated this change? Quite simply, opinions are tiresome. They cause divisions in families and friendships to end over whether David Tennant or Matt Smith was the better Doctor (the answer is Tennant by the way, and that is a fact - not an opinion. Fight me). Opinions often require a lot of research to understand and they can be rooted in misinformation or inherent bias. Life would be more simple if we did away with opinions, which we here at Comment have taken to heart.

What shall we do next? Well. We have decided to move towards more factual reporting. In this era of misinformation and fake news, we need to rise up and combat it. It will become our mission, nay, our reason for existence to bring to you, our dear readers, the real story of what's going on in the world.

But isn't there already a News section at the Courier?

Well. Yes. But we're the sequel. We are the Garfield 2 to the Garfield that is the news section: we are making news-reporting bigger and better than before (and Bill Murray will regret our existence even more than before).

Even though we are making this (slight) change to Comment, nothing else will change! Okay, maybe the name has to change. But that's it.

Our new name?

News II: Electric Boogaloo. or 2 Fast 2 News. The name is a work in progress.

(P.S - Happy April Fools Day :D)
