I saw a tweet yesterday from Cristina Odone of the Legatum Institute commenting on a tweet from the BBC Politics feed about an SNP MP:

An intriguing extra angle to all of this is that the original BBC Politics tweet has been deleted. 

And, for good measure, the BBC News website report it relates to had its original headline, MP Carol Monaghan 'not embarrassed' about display of Christian faith, changed to the less negative-sounding MP: Christians shouldn’t feel embarrassed about display of faith.

Complaints must have gone in to the BBC about both that tweet and that headline, and that's surely why the one got deleted and the other edited. 

My guess is that those changes weren't made as a result of pressure from Christian campaigners but because of complaints from the SNP.
