Speaking truth to power

Today's Evening Standard contains the following headline on page 4:

DARLING APPLAUDS STANDARD CAMPAIGN ON RAIL STATION SAFETY

It goes on:

"The Evening Standard's campaign to improve passenger safety at London's stations has been praised in the Commons by Transport Secretary Alistair Darling."

Bravo, lads! That's telling 'em.

I mean, I'm no great fan of the goldfish bowl world of Fourth Estate agit prop masquerading as political Opposition, but really. This is a story that wouldn't have disgraced Pravda during the Soviet era, you know the sort of thing:

PARTY BOSS PRAISES OUR REPORTS ON STEEL PRODUCTION.
