Two day ago I turned my radio on at the usual time (5 O’ clock) on the usual propaganda channel (radio 4) and a reporter from France 24 news channel told me there had been a large explosion in Beirut and that moment before it happened, she saw a low flying plane in the sky. Now if that is not trying to put words in my mouth then I don’t know what is. Thankfully I have a mind of my own and (with my experience) can usually work out what is really going on. As usual it is not good!
