Regarding the BBC's lack of coverage...
Regarding the BBC's lack of coverage at the Manchester Demonstration during the Protests at the Conservative Conference in Manchester during September 2013
Would the recent, peaceful demonstration
In the middle of Manchester
Just before the Conservative Conference in Manchester
At the Manchester International Centre
Got more coverage by the BBC
Instead of a minor side story
If they had been 50, 000 suicide bombers
Instead of 50,000 peaceful demonstrators?
Would it have got more coverage?
If it had got more hostile
For whatever reason
And the Police got the horses out
Re-creating without planning
A bloody re-creation of Peterloo
Leaving bodies on the floor
Like maimed rats.
Would they have swarmed towards it
Like bees to a honey pot
If the violence had increased
Up and down Piccadilly Gardens
Then onto Deansgate
Smashing up and down windows
Until the glass shattered like water
Leaving the air smelling of fear.
Very likely I am saddened to say.
