Re: And astonishing hypocrisy.
Apparently the upcoming World Cup in Qatar is not controversial and we don't need a helpful "explainer" from our betters to tell us why. There's been periodic hand wringing since they bought the decision in one of the most clearly corrupt decisions in sporting history but there's never any substantive action and it's basically just been kicking the can down the road until they have the "Well we can't cancel it now, it's too short notice".
Executing apostates, homosexuals and people who speak out against the government isn't controversial. Thousands of migrant workers dying to build stupid football stadiums in the middle of the ####ing desert that will almost certainly never be used again isn't controversial. Such double standards.
I really do despise BBC news. I can't remember who it was that said in a piece recently that they feel physically ill when they try to watch it. I know exactly what they mean.
...no amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party...So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.
