Of course they would...
The move inevitably drew skepticism. "The media in general predicted and said we would fail. Or even in some cases, rooted for us to fail," Price said.
...they don't make money from positive stories.

in msg 2080483 I said
the BBC as a news site, these days they are usually the last to report on any serious news.
Well now there is proof, Three hours ago they reported that Perseverance Mars rover's first rock sample goes missing, this isn't news it's history it was reported on space.com, scientificamerican.com and abcnews.go.com 3 days ago.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo resigns after sexual harassment allegations

Both Republicans and Democrats have their sexual harassers, the difference is the Republicans endorse them the Democrats have zero tolerance.

UK announces around 600 troops are to be deployed to Afghanistan to assist British nationals to leave
US and others laying groundwork for Afghan embassy evacuations

Is this the beginning of another Saigon airlift?

It is often said we should study history, so that we don't make the same mistakes again.
So, did anybody study the nearly 150 year period covering what we call the 'North West Frontier'.

Message 2082140 - Posted: 12 Aug 2021, 21:46:59 UTC - in response to Message 2082130.  

I visited the Punjab (specifically, Amritsar) in 1984 - during the tension that led up to the assassination of Indira Gandhi. I was there purely as a tourist, but we were warned not to stay overnight, and not even to attempt to visit the Golden Temple. There were armed Indian Army guards on the day-train from Delhi.

That experience has given me a lasting interest in colonial events such as the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, and in general the events following the Partition of India in 1947. The British Empire doesn't come out of that period covered in glory.

That's a very mild critical assessment of the situation.

Much more history before that time period. Check the history of:
Foreign Office
Colonial Office
War Office
Commonwealth Relations Office.
Board of Trade.
& one year in particular: 1966 (no not the World Cup final).
Administrators of the British Empire
Not much changed in 229 years of bureaucracy asides from name changes.

In online videos Davison spoke of being "beaten down" and "defeated by life".
One would expect that to come from a 40/50/60/70, but a 22 year old?

Never thought the antivax crowd would be in 100% agreement with the pro-choice crowd.

Greed at work
He claims he "has suffered and will continue to suffer lifelong damages" as a result of the artwork, including "extreme and permanent emotional distress" as well as "interference with his normal development and educational progress" and "medical and psychological treatment".
So, why now nearly 30 years later?
