A fairly plain article about delays building a stadium.

I’m sure they didn’t use any dirty foreign materials in their manufacturing processes either.


#193

Agreed.


#194

Original headline “Sex work stall at freshers fair branded disgraceful”

Because the beeb couldn’t do an ounce of reporting for itself, and would just prefer to C + V straight from some SWERF twitter account.

Also, anyone calling themselves a journalist who calls julie bindel a ‘feminist campaigner’ with no qualifications can fucking do one.

Thank you for getting in touch about our article reporting that A Coldstream Guardsman who was the first to wear a turban during Trooping the Colour is understood to have tested positive for cocaine (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-45637288) and please accept our apologies for the delay in our response.

The cultural significance of Charanpreet Singh Lall wearing a turban at the Trooping of the Colour, and in doing so immediately becoming a recognisable figure in the public eye, makes it notable that he has failed a drugs test.

At the time of publication we did not know the identities of the other two soldiers involved, but we have been attempting to find out.

Please also see this later version of the story, which included updated information (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-45637288).

Thank you once again for getting in touch.

Kind Regards

No it doesn’t.
