Same Old Same Old

It's significant that the London media - and especially its more "liberal" wing, which has been wallowing in a faux unionjackery since the London Olympics - failed to carry even a mention of the death of Eileen Beasley, never mind an obituary.  Obviously such a significant figure in the history of modern Wales is of no interest to these outraged defenders of the human right to kick off in a Moscow Cathedral.  The newly discovered Britishness of the metropolitan elite clearly doesn't encompass anything as unfashionable as the recalcitrant Welsh, or the independently minded English working class for that matter.

UPDATE:  I see the Guardian did get around to publishing an obituary.
