I was in manchester this afternoon, 3000 ex and serving service men were protesting against the prosecution of SF along with London servers too .I might be wrong but seen nothing reported on BBC. Hmmm
Thanks for that Diogenes . Dont see londons press or news , but you'd expect it to go national. Or is it that theyre more concerned with Swampy and the enviromentalists ?22000 bikers in London last weekend according to Met figures, not reported. Larger march planned for tomorrow in London.
You can see why people might look askance at the BBC for more or less dismissing 22000 bikers parading through the capital as not being "significant". Whatever your feelings on the Soldier F case, that many people protesting is surely newsworthy?BBC Complaints said:
Thank you for contacting us about BBC News coverage from April 12 regarding the Veterans Motorcycle Demonstration.
We realise you felt the ‘Rolling Thunder’ rallies across the UK on April 12 should have received more attention on BBC News.
Many gatherings take place in cities around the UK and we do not cover them all. Instead, we consider each protest on a case by case basis and take into consideration the wider context of the story at hand.
We have recently reported on the Bloody Sunday trial, including a range of voices reacting to the recent prosecution decision made regarding ‘Soldier F’.
We’ll continue to follow the case and return to significant events as it progresses.
