If ever this country had a true modern hero, Surgeon Captain Rick Jolly RN was that man.

Recognised by both Argentina and the UK for his heroism, this man was never Knighted for his contributions to the world and his true understanding of the word humanity.

Bob Geldhof and Nick Clegg should bow their heads in shame.

RIP.

No mention of his passing from the BBC. Too busy with some snowflake, ex-thug US actor donating money to underpaid actresses.

Not on their pages on the day of his passing. A check of his name ON THE DAY led to an article dated 2005. This no doubt came after the Times Obituary, shaming them into it. Stick your :oops: where it needs to go.

Or maybe... it just took a few hours for them to arrange the video interviews that you see on that news story. The idea that the BBC have some sort of bias and didn't care to post the story seems a little bit paranoid conspiracy theory-ish. Tbh.

First up I may be a tad sensitive on this for personal reasons so I apologise there. However, the BBC is this countries national news service. The Marky Mark story was news worthy to be reported immediately on the day, a national hero was not.

I suppose it just reflects where we are as a society.
