Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Is this supposed to be an example of the high standards of reporting to which the BBC should aspire -  a few selected reports of alleged comments, out of context ? :-)

I don't believe the bit about "Zainab" - it's Zeinab by the way - Badawi - a very smart woman - perhaps being ironic, playing devil's disciple, etc. ?

One of the things I do miss is BBC TV - especially the docs and major series. Having spent a bit of time in the US I can understand the Americans who appreciate the BBC more than many Brits. For all its faults it's one of the major achievements of British culture, is admired around the world and still highly trusted in the UK.

"Twelve months after the damning verdict of Lord Hutton, a Press Gazette poll has
shown that the BBC is still the first place most of the public turn to when they want to
find news reports they can trust. Press Gazette commissioned YouGov to poll a representative sample of more than 2,000 members of the public. We asked them to name one newspaper, magazine,
broadcast news programme or news web site that they considered to be trustworthy. The BBC, with 624 mentions, polled more than five times its nearest rivals."



Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
