This evening, following the earlier report of the tragic loss of the 3 soldiers in Afghanistan, ITN sent a reporter to do a piece to camera from outside the MOD.
The report was a classic. The casualties had been "inside" their "armoured" WIMIK Land Rover, which apparently had a V shaped mine resistant chassis.
Since he was standing outside the MOD building, we have to assume that he'd been briefed on these matters by the MOD's press office, so it all smacks of stunning unprofessionalism by the reporter and a deliberately misleading briefing from the civil servants.
It's no wonder you despair.
These people are beyond belief. They are getting away with murder
