A sign of our times

At the time of writing the lead story on Politics Home has been Bob Diamond and Andrew Tyrie. The second story had been “Americas to discuss Assange”. About an hour ago the story about Foreign ministers from across the Americas meeting on Friday to discuss the quarrel between Ecuador and the UK over the former’s decision to grant asylum to Julian Assange was moved to the number three spot, to be replaced by an article informing us that yet another British soldier from 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards had been killed by “enemy action” in Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand Province.

While it is fairly certain that Politics Home will not be the only member to prioritize their news feeds in this manner, I find it distasteful that a problem castigated by those that had a hand in creating it is classed as being more important than that of someone giving their life in order that the ‘minnows’ of our society can continue with their stupid games.

Just saying…………………
