The endless homage

The BBC has suspended all news operations for the duration of the Diamond Jubilee in abject homage to Betty Windsor. It’s all Betty all the time. The news agency recognizes no other reality for now, which should make us circumspect about its reporting when it does resume it’s usual broadcasting--or, as put more colloquially, when they pull their snout out of her ass. Here is an example of jubilee coverage which trumps the Eurozone crisis, major protests in Hong Kong & Egypt, 8,000 striking miners in Spain, Israeli bombing in Gaza, & in general, a world collapsing around our ears.
