No excuse for lazy BBC reporting

It might seem a trivial thing given the terrifying debt related economic problems stalking European nations, but what I noticed on Google’s news headlines that had been published by the BBC really got my hackles up.  There is no such thing as a UK marine, or a British marine.  This country has Royal Marines. 

They are outstanding professionals who put themselves through physical and mental trials to earn the coveted green beret and cap badge comprising the Lion and Crown, Gibraltar, the Globe, Laurels, Fouled Anchor and Per Mare Per Terram motto.

Perhaps the cabal of lazy progressives ensconced within BBC News – who don’t give a toss about this country and who sneer at our heritage and undermine our traditions – would like to consider that when a Royal Marine loses his life serving alongside his friends and colleagues, carrying out a mission determined by his country’s government, he deserves rightful recognition of his hard won status – that of a Royal Marine. Our thoughts should be with the family and friends of the young Royal Marine who was killed near Sangin. Another tragic loss in a campaign that has been completely mismanaged and badly thought out.

    What they really meant of course was “European Marine”

    We can’t expect any understanding or decency, not even basic checking,from such as these.

    Well, what else would you expect from the narcissistic bien-pensant progressives (sic) who infest the well-remunerated corridors of the Biased Broadcasting Collective?

    They subscribe fully to the ideology that has no love for the military and which regards with a disdain verging on contempt the honourable profession of the bearing of arms in the service of one’s country. Execrable detritus, every last one of them – they are not fit to lick the lowliest Royal Marine’s boots.
