EYE Review 2016: April to June

EYEscroll back over three more months of memories, mayhem and man bashing.


In April EYEstumbled into a nest of self-identifying vaping vipers and discovered that Mumsnet’s CEO is very concerned about online abuse, except when it’s in her own backyard.

Online abuse was a big talking pointing in 2016 and the Guardian really pushed the boat out with their Web We Want series of disingenuous scaremongering  which amongst other things gave us an hilarious insight into locker room talk Guardian style.

Yvette Cooper’s thought crime project hit a bump in the road..
