News & politics

Good to know that the BBC has it priorities in the right order.

The BBC does a good job and keeps the commercial side up to scratch. It needs protection from Johnson and the likes of Nadine Dorries.

There have been many excellent programmes about the danger our planet is in, BBC and other channels.
It's simply that the queen is particularly in the news at present because of concerns about her health and her not doing the opening of parliament today, and the forthcoming jubilee.

The fact that we might hit 1.5 degrees in the next five years is a really big deal though.

The Queen is in the news due to her not reading The Queens Speech at the opening of parliament today.

It is news as we are witnessing her gradual withdrawal from her duties.

The Earth’s demise is constantly in the news/headlines.

If you look on I-Player you will see that the Beeb has produced/shown several documentaries on climate change.
Some of them are no longer available.

We’ve heard it all before about the planet, for decades in fact.

But surely we all know that the planet is heading for catastrophe too? It is fairly recent news that the Queen isn't undertaking as much as she did before Prince Philip died.

I noticed that too! OH and I couldn’t quite believe it. We all know the Queen is on her last legs and there is nothing that can be done. The planet may be on its last legs and there are things we can do!

15 minutes about the Queen ageing etc.

10 secs about the world heating up to catastrophic levels.

Oh well.
