: never let it be set that the BBC headlines all news from Iraq negatively. Yesterday’s CEEFAX headline
Baghdad morgue dead rise again
suggested very positive if extremely surprising news from that quarter. Sadly, the article made it plain that only this month’s count had risen, not the dead themselves, so that morgue staff were ‘worried about their ability to cope’, making it a very unsurprising minor example of the BBC’s eagerness to squeeze every last drop of worry from the situation.
