The BBC website is looking very very sloppy tonight

...forgive my rant...

First, this photo caption refers to a Muslim MP as a Baroness (a Baroness is a title like Sir). Not only is she not a Baroness, but the article itself even talks about her possibly becoming one in the future.

This is just careless. In a story about an English plumber winning an award in France we hear the same thing twice:

"He said that the judges would be surprised to realise that he is English - a competitor's work is just given a number to avoid any bias.

"When you do the competition you don't give your name, you just have a number so it eliminates bias with the judges. I think they'll be a bit surprised." "

And this just doesn't make a bit of sense.

I cant believe you chose not to report on the Syro-Saudi fiasco!

What's to report? Is it anything we haven't heard before? Is it anything surprising?

It's as if Ahmedinijad and Bush traded insults.

There are more important things to worry about than two old men on a power trip.
