    Not sure how that bizarre non sequitur conceivably follows from my post, but any excuse to bash a Brexiter I guess.

    But if I watched BBC news, it would be hour after hour after hour, on the hour every hour, of obsessing and agonizing over the Manchester attack, yet again as always desperately trying to absolve the UK muslim community from any blame.
    Ten minutes spent on the victims, the next 6 months analysing why the mass murderer was infact the real victim, of racism, intolerance, poverty, oppression by the well off etc.

    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...

    I tend to record the BBC news these days then just skip through all the depressing bits, which is usually most of it. Maybe I should watch news on a commercial channel then I could just watch the adverts.

    Seriously, I think fretting, or obsessing as some seem to on here, over all the problems one can't do anything about does not do us any good.

    Much same thing really. Even the local news was all about Manchester today. The only worse thing was about an art exhibition featuring Tracy Emin's unmade bed.
