I know it's cheap to snipe at the BBC for being a group of left-wing ignorant pinko tree-huggung scum (and that's me being polite) but this story really shows their lack of actual 'reporting' ability. It concerns the bloke charged with killing four of his family. The quotes are directly from the BBC news site - link at the end. "Killer kept pistol from Army days By Julie Cush BBC News, Newcastle David Bradley killed his family with a pistol he kept from the Army Former soldier David Bradley "assassinated" his family using a pistol he kept from his Army days. The 41-year-old's eight-year career serving his country in the Gulf, Northern Ireland and Bosnia, was described as "exemplary". Soldiers are allowed to keep some trophy items when they leave the Army, but are usually searched for weapons. The Ministry of Defence (MoD) could not say whether Bradley was searched before he quit the Army in 1995. " Later on: "The former Royal Artillery private claimed he had swapped a packet of cigarettes with a Bosnian for the 7.65mm CZ pistol complete with silencer." http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/tyne/6308827.stm The Bold is mine - I have seldom seen such complete twaddle in a news report, even on the Beeb. A terribly sad story, which is used to denigrate and abuse the Army - just what the BBC is good at. Now, anyone any good ideas as to how not to pay my licence-fee-poll-tax to these swine?
