When starting this blog - and ever since - we've tried never to succumb to that thing which seems eventually to afflict even the most mild-mannered of bloggers on this kind of subject: self-radicalisation.
Have I succumbed after all though, despite myself?
BBC Newsreader: Nigeria's president hits back after David Cameron calls his country "fantastically corrupt". "No need to say sorry, just give back the cash hidden in British banks." That's his message.President Buhari: I'm not going to demand any apology for anybody. What I'm demanding is the return of assets. (Laughter and applause).BBC Newsreader: We'll be looking at what more Britain could do.
At which point I though, "**** off, BBC! Stop taking sides against your own country!"
Was I wrong to think that?
