Must be a bad day for news. The BBC is reporting not that the head of the Metropolitan police has died after being knocked of his bike nor that his daughter has been killed after being knocked off her bike. No, they’re reporting that the head of the Metropolitan police’s daughter’s boyfriend has been killed after being knocked off his bike. While I’m sure that this is of great concern to the boyfriend’s family and friends just why does the Beeb think that the rest of us will be even remotely interested? I find it all most baffling.
