Buried? Overlooked? Missed?

Over the last week or so the news agenda in this country has been, unsurprisingly, dominated by two items: the renewed volatility in the global financial markets, and the rioting and looting in London and several other major cities.

What then, I wonder, has gone un- (or under-) reported by our MSM in the last five days? What bad news has, to quote Jo Moore, been buried or otherwise simply over looked either due to bad timing or deliberate action?

Readers are invited to use the comments to enlighten both myself and others as to what may have been buried, overlooked or missed.

    Generally MG, just about everything else that is wrong with our rotten country; the economy, education, the EU – need I continue?

  2. How about the downgrading of the US credit rating from AAA to AA+?

      I think anyone follow the financial crisis would have picked that one up. It was fairly big news when it happened.

  3. Demelza says:

    Famine in East Africa while the yoof go looting for plasma screens because, like, not having one is SO unfair?

  4. Ian R Thorpe says:

    Scientists at CERN think they might have discovered the so called go particle, the Higgs Boson. On the other hand it could have been the shock wave caused by a mouse farting somewhere in the tunnel.

    Another EU tax, Rebekah swanning off on a holiday.

    • Misanthrope Girl says:

      Whilst Mrs Brooks holidays arrangements hold no interest, what are the thieving buggers in Brussels up to now?

      • Chalcedon says:

        Robin Hood tax on financial transactions. Now that will go down well in the City of London won’t it? I think they’ll do it out of spite.
