    It is what the BBC does not report that is the problem. I don't watch much news on RT there are plenty of entertainment programs.

    I pretty much boycott them and Fox news.They are bit fond of androids for my liking.But whatever floats your boat,most of them are going to make something up to get you nibbling away at the drama of it all.
