Shabby journalism strikes again. Look at the BBC headline:
Britain will pay 'blood price' - Blair
The report goes on:
Britain must be prepared to pay a "blood price" to secure its special relationship with the US, Prime Minister Tony Blair has told the BBC ahead of talks on Iraq with President Bush.
Blair didn't use the words 'blood price' at all. The presenter, Michael Cockerell, did. The gist of the question was whether Blair was prepared to commit forces in support of the US, which, of course, he is.
I'm not an apologist for Blair, but the quality of our journalists concerns me far more than the quality of our politicians.
