BBC tries to hide Biden’s warning for Johnson over Northern Ireland

Talking-up Scotland

Twenty paragraphs on Russia and this frankly ludicrous, fawning, attempt to paint Johnson as his hero, Churchill:

President Biden arrived in the UK on Wednesday. He will meet PM Boris Johnson to agree a new “Atlantic Charter”. The pact will be a modern version of the one agreed between Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt in 1941, with a focus on challenges including climate change and security.

before this carefully worded avoidance of the truth of Johnson’s responsibilities for the crisis in Northern Ireland:

Mr Biden is expected to warn that the UK-EU trade row could endanger peace in Northern Ireland. He will call on fellow leaders to protect the gains of the Good Friday agreement.

From the Guardian, a more accurate account:

Only the BBC seems to have misjudged the headline story:
