Sunday 30 January 2022


As regular readers will know, the BBC News Channel has a new programme in the evening called Context. I'm guessing what follows won't be in its remit...

On hearing this morning's Sunday and reading the headline story about it on the BBC News website - which is as much as I've engaged with the BBC so far today - the following tweet strikes a chord:
Inspector Gadget: Today, the media will not inform the public that between March 1971 and 30th January 1972, republican terrorists in Northern Ireland murdered 52 British soldiers. Hypervigilance was a consequence, and once again, their own population paid the price. #context

I think that should at least be acknowledged by the likes of the BBC.
