WTF? Since when was it considered partisan to help the civilian victims of a conflict? Does this mean there will never be any appeals on the BBC (or others in the UK - but apparently the Beeb called the shots) for the victims of the Congo, Darfur, etc etc? Or is the idea that the Disasters Emergency Committee is some kind of cat's paw for Hamas? Or what?
Can anybody read this story in a way that makes any kind of non-sickening sense?
