I really like Newsnight on BBC 2. It’s a very competent programme indeed. In fact, you can watch the latest programme here.

However… I didn’t know its journalistic effervescence was of such a dimension that Britain needed to protect its atomic weapons from the show. But judging from this little gem for a headline on the BBC News website shown in this screenshot… it seems that the Ministry of Defence has had reason to lock up its nukes whenever the Newsnight team was in the neighbourhood.

Maybe someone did go ballistic about that thing about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq after all.
