The BBC could barely conceal its satisfaction as Britain recorded 150,000 deaths “with Covid” this weekend.
As noted, this is equal to the entire population of Oxford.
To emphasize this astonishing point, the screen is filled with aerial views of the city as a stain spreads like blood across its streets.
UK is the first country in Europe to discover so many coronavirus corpses, noted health reporter Catherine Burns.
Not only did she name a single blonde Prime Minister, her true story holds who is responsible.
This was followed by interviews with weeping loved ones, recalling the BBC’s climactic images of dying patients as broadcaster Clive Myrie insisted: “We were all scared. . . We are all scared.”
You won’t glean from the startling report that we are emerging from this disaster and learning to live with Omicron faster than the rest of Europe.
Or that governments across Europe are at war with angry voters in a new wave of contagion.
Excited about the bad news
Not a word about the methods used by different countries to count Covid deaths. Nor are obese patients particularly vulnerable – and Britain has more obese people than anywhere else in European Union Malta.
There is no reference to the origin of the virus, supposedly a lab leak in Wuhan province shamefully covered up by the authoritarian Chinese government. And the World Health Organization supports China. And Facebook.
It seems almost as if the BBC wants Britain – under a Tory government led by Boris Johnson – is the hardest hit, least prepared, most dangerous place in the Western world. It reveals any bad news that may be aimed at Number 10.

There was little mention in the early news of the Government’s winning vaccine breakthrough, although that emerged later in the evening.
There is certainly no criticism against France and Germany for sabotaging the wonderfully successful Astra-Zeneca vaccine, discovered by scientists in that graveyard city, Oxford.
Boris also received no recognition for declaring Freedom Day last summer, against Sage’s advice, given the BBC’s voice at every opportunity.
Or has this given the UK a head start in dealing with the disease.
It also makes no mention of the Prime Minister’s decision to hire Chris Whitty and other Sage “experts”, who have canceled Christmas.
Remember that it was Sage who fanatically warned of a new Black Death, haphazardly predicting 60,000 deaths, a claim that even Sage now admits was absurd.
Indeed, England is only at the top of the death charts if you don’t look at the facts.
Two out of five deaths “with Covid” have little or nothing to do with the virus. Many people make mistakes IN the hospital.
The numbers to watch for are “excess deaths” – numbers that are well above the annual average.
In which, the UK, with 217 per 100,000 inhabitants, is behind Hungary (359), the US (314), Italy (289), Spain (241) and only behind Belgium (199) and the Netherlands (186).
Yes, thousands of elderly people died unjustly when care homes were filled with Covid patients at the start of the pandemic, not by Tory ministers but by the sacred NHS and now-disappeared Public Health England. pass away.
None of these points are mentioned in Beeb’s dull story – with the obvious implication that this is all Boris’ fault.
Some may even recognize a pattern of institutional bias.
Remember Brexit? Has the BBC ever made a news report or a documentary suggesting there might be a side to leaving the European Union?
Will it lead the news as multi-billion pound global conglomerate Unilever and the former Royal Dutch Shell lift sticks and move locks, warehouses and crates from the Netherlands to London?
Does Beeb come up with multiple independent growth forecasts that see the UK beating all of Europe, including France and Germany this year?
Of course not.
And if by chance the decision to live with Covid and carry on with a normal life is rewarded with a strong economic revival, with additional tax revenue to pay for the NHS, will the BBC speak well, Boris?
Not your aunt Nellie.
‘No worries’ is banned
MICHIGAN State University has banned the cheerful Australian greeting “Don’t worry” because it is “familiar but problematic”.
Researchers have been trying to figure out the origin of the phrase, some going back to the Crocodile Dundee movie, while others blamed Australian actresses Margot Robbie and Rebel Wilson.
In fact, the icon was laid in stone in 1853 at Sans Souci on the seaside suburb of Sydney.
As with any full knot, being French means “not careful”. Sans souci, man.
