Downturn

So, the figures are out and the UK economy shrank in the last quarter. This post isn’t about that. 

This is about the BBCs reaction. They’ve unveiled a special page: bbc.co.uk/downturn

Easy to remember URL, snappy graphics, special fonts, lots of content. New graphics are already on News 24 as well.

Eh, could you at least pretend you’re not beside yourself with glee that we’re “on the brink of recession.” 

How long have they had that ready to go? You just know they don’t have an equivalent ‘upturn’ page. 

It makes you wonder what they do have ready, lots of pre-done obituraries I imagine, but do they have terror attack pages, nuclear strike, alien attack?
