This is a significant judgment which I'm sure will impact other cases. I don't understand why police are so reluctant to produce ID when asked. What are they afraid of? In many countries it's standard practice for an officer to producer a warrant card if asked.

It’s a word used by governments not reporters. If somebody is an Islamic fundamentalist then say that. If somebody is pushing for independence then say that. To Hitler the French underground were “terrorists”. During apartheid Nelson Mandela was a “terrorist”.

30 million! I remember when the outbreak first started and I was wondering if it could get as bad as SARS.

The 17% figure was released yesterday and the BBC reported it all day on TV and radio. So that’s like the opposite of never. I guess I should be singing to you the theme song from “The Always Ending Story... la la la la la la...”

Attribution. It is however a loaded term though. As a reporter I never use it to describe somebody myself. All it tells your audience is that you don’t like that person. Reporting language should be specific. In this case it’s a word used in the report, hence inverted commas.

Well to tell the truth this is - or should be - part of the debate. Without going into details about what he is supposed to have done specifically, governments all round the world are exerting influence via their diplomacy or study tours or foreign aid etc.
