    "The teen's using Instagram to chat about mental health".

    That's BBC hyperlink text.

    That's an apostrophe.

    It shouldn't be there.

    "Sex tech makes a splash at tech show"

    That link is just vulgarity.

    "Pringles tubes burnt to crisp in M1 lorry fire" is just as bad. Who was on duty last night?

    And this one is the Guardian, sadly.
    The study found that the murres mostly likely starved to death. The seabird must eat half its body weight to survive, but food grew scarce amid intense competition from other creatures.

    https://www.theguardian.com/environm...-north-america
    The seabird must eat half its body weight every second? hour? day? week? year? Over the course of a lifetime?

    "NHS pledges elderly rapid response community teams".

    By pulling pensionable social workers back out of retirement, perhaps.

    IS that their way of reminding us that EMTs and medics are getting older?

    Re: Unintelligibly illiterate BBC News article link text

    I have grown more convinced over the past few years that the department which prepares the link texts has at least fifty staff who do nothing else and are bored to teers. They compensate by seeing which of them can be silliest on any given day. No other explanation makes sense.

    "Trump ordered to remove envoy in Ukraine in 2018 - video"

    What gibbering cobblers is that?

    Who on earth is in a position to order the President of the USA to remove one of his envoys?

    Of course he wasn't ordered to. He gave an order that the envoy be removed. That's a total reversal of the link text. "Trump ordered removal of envoy" would work.

    Plonking BBC staff in major upstuff yet again, foisting clickbait on long-suffering users.



    eta:the link text has changed to "Trump ordered Ukraine envoy's sacking in 2018 - tape" so someone finally worked out there was a problem. The article's headline is still "Trump ordered to remove envoy in Ukraine in 2018 - video" though. But at least the clickbait aspect of the link has gone.

    Rather unbelievably I felt compelled to actually complain on the contact form this time. I've never done that before.

    As follows:


    You've put the wrong link to the Nicholas Parsons Official Website on his obituary, followed by the words "Why you can trust the BBC". It's http://nicholasparsons.info/ not .co.uk

    For the official BBC obituary I suspect you ought to fix it.
