Once is accident – Savile – protection of their own, contempt for us.
Twice is coincidence – McAlpine – assault on their self identified enemies.
Three times is enemy action – 28Gate – lies, deceit, and assault on the rest of us.
But you knew this anyway, didn’t you?
Actually, in the case of the BBC, we all knew that twice was enemy action. Third time was just another example of an ongoing campaign.
A reputation created up over ninety years, dragged into the gutter and pissed on.
