Defending a Position

Here is today's Daily Express front page.

Just a Mistake

It's difficult to see how anyone could argue this if the leaks we have heard turn out to be true. I can't help feeling that they're still trying to defend the headline they printed the day after Jean Charles de Menezes was killed. I seem to remember that "one down, three to go" was the thrust of the accompanying article. I don't often read the Express so I'm not in a position to say whether they ever issued an apology for that headline and article. Today's paper certainly suggests that they're not overly sorry about the whole thing.

Perhaps Mr Desmond should have stuck to what he knows best.

Also, it seems that a number of people have felt the need to use the word liar in the last couple of days. Tim Worstall, for example, adds his voice to those who think Sir Ian's time is up.
