Talking of rum decisions...
I can see why - in the wake of the British government's decision to take in orphaned Islamic State children and Paddy's mention that charities are calling for "everybody's child to be brought back home" - Broadcasting House chose to interview a woman who took in refugees (from the likes of Eritrea and Chad) and one of the young refugees she took in. It helps the cause.
The rum thing is that, as Paddy (properly) pointed out, she's a Liberal Democrat candidate in the general election. She's standing in Luton North.
Isn't it a bit unfair to the candidates standing against her to have her selflessness paraded before the public? Wouldn't it have been better to tell her story after the election?
I think the BBC would argue that you have to look at balance over time, in this case about 10,000 years.ReplyDelete
