This story from BBC News online says it all really. Well, the headline says far more than the content below it.
Expenses body to cost six times more than MPs’ payback
… screams the headline.
And my response is a massive:
so fucking what?
What a total non-news story this is. I’m beginning to think that The Daily Mail journalists have secretly been shipped in to the BBC News department, because this is absolutely fucking awful journalism.
Here’s why it’s awful.
Are you ready?
It is awful.
It ALWAYS costs more to police things.
Here’s my point:
It costs more to operate the combined police forces of Great Britain and Northern Ireland than the value of the crimes that are committed, detected and people are prosecuted for. Fact!
So is The Daily Mail BBC News Online suggesting something here? Or are they just pandering to the very lowest IQ of their readership?
I thought, qualitatively speaking, that the BBC News output had reached rock bottom last year.
I feel both satisfied and disappointed to learn that I was wrong.
I’m now going out to buy a sandwich for lunch. I’m so angry if anyone gets in my way I may have to hit them.
