Slowly Improving Health
For as long as I can remember, the BBC has been campaigning for the privatisation of the "unaffordable" NHS.
So its mentions of today's March for the NHS, at least a quarter of a million strong, are peremptory and dismissive.
But not very long ago, that March could have been four times that size and still have received no coverage whatever.
Now, though, it need contend with nothing worse than the carping of someone called Owen Smith on Twitter.
Yes, Smith. I know. I, too, had thought that it was Jones.
