Bowen Bowen Gone!

At the beginning of the Libyan uprising back in February, the BBC’s esteemed Middle East Editor Jeremy Bowen was nowhere to be seen. He had snuck off to the slopes…

When he did finally get back to the action, his soft-stance on Gaddafi raised eyebrows, particularly back in June when he said:

“More questions now seem likely about what Nato is doing in Libya and what it is achieving – not least by Nato members who never agreed with the operation” 

Well it seems that the fearless and impartial Bowen hasn’t bothered to stick around to find answers to those questions. Guido’s Beeboid co-conspirators are strongly hinting that Bowen has jetted off for another holiday during the finale. Given that even Sky’s most vehement critics concede that they have thrashed the BBC in terms of Libya coverage, on a fraction of the budget, perhaps it’s time for a revolution on the Middle East desk…

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
