Richard North, EU Referendum, has a post about Afghanistan, however his intro to this post succinctly sums up why our media do not perform the service they should, namely keeping their readers/viewers informed about what is happening at home. Richard's opening paragraph reads:
"The resignation of David Laws would be big news at any time, but the homosexual relationship gives it an extra edge. The saga of "poofters in power" – as it was characterised by one of my correspondents – has a special fascination in the Westminster village, which is far more interested in who is buggering whom than it is the general proposition that the population as a whole is being right royally buggered by the political classes."Well said Richard - extremely well said, indeed!
