    'Beaten and shot by Zimbabwe's police' - BBC News

    Zimbabwe troops accused of 'systematic torture' of protesters - BBC News

    Zimbabwe president Mnangagwa skips Davos over protests - BBC News

    Zimbabwe opposition accuses government of brutal crackdown - BBC News

    And that's just 21-23rd Jan

    As for the Wail, they don't even have an Africa section to their website. Your options are UK, USA or World, which is broken down into: ISIS, Russia, China, Syria, Iran, Israel, Turkey Nigeria and North Korea.

    ...but we aren't allowed to criticise the Wail, anytime anyone queries it, the response from Wailers is the usual deflection/distraction/blame.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I wonder if the cretins will now reflect on their stupidity and ignorance, or just press on regardless.

    Yes, it was a rhetorical wondering. They never learn.

    Can someone link to the amount of unbiased coverage the Wail has given to Zimbabwe in the last week?

    I've run out of carpet and having watched Silent Witness the other night, I know if the pieces are wrapped in newspaper, they might use it to link back to me. If they are wrapped in the Wail, they would never link that to me.
