Run for the hills

Listening to the Today programme most mornings, you are often subjected to a bombardment of initiatives from Government ministers, I don't ever recall a time when a minister was not available to espouse the latest nonsense. However, as soon as a bad news item is run, they all seem to head for the mountains. For example, the latest Iraqgate news this morning, the Attorney General's supposed change of mind over the legality of the Iraq war and the alleged torture and imprisonment of British nationals in Egypt who were not being "aided by the Foreign Office" were mety with the usual "no one was available for comment". Maybe the next time a good news item is run, the BBC should refuse to give airtime to the Minister concerned!!
