I despair when reading BBC News sometimes. After reading Flat Earth News, I realise what is causing the problem but still the mistakes and errors they make can be quite annoying. Yesterday this story appeared under the title "Blairs Nearly Had Water Turned Off".
What a lie! It is illegal to use unpaid bills as an excuse to turn off water to a domestic property! What numpty wrote that? Well obviously it has been changed now but still they are acting as if the water board was about to take the ex-Prime Minister to a debt collection agency. This is a reminder notice! Of course it is a little harsh, that's how they get the money out of people who don't pay bills! But at least two more letters must be sent before they can send you to a debt collection agency. Grrr... how can people work in journalism be so stupid?
And the worst part? Some actual serious news was released with regards to MPs expenses but it was hidden under this populist twaddle. Shame on the BBC.
