One of our planes is missing……

ImageAs the unbelievable search for the missing Malaysian airways flight MH370 continues I am beginning to be suspicious that we may all have fallen victim to an elaborate hoax.

All I can say is that while we are all glued to our TVs, mobile devices and social media of choice looking for flotsam in the South China Sea and worried about the security on our next flight to the Costa Brava , other important news stories seem to be being buried.

I am sure that President Putin deliberately timed his invasion of the Crimea, bringing us all (not) to the brink of the Third World War…. but for the fact that no-one in the West of Europe or America believes that their soldiers should fight for anything other than oil these days, and would not want to have their gas supplies disrupted, or Chelsea’s chances of winning the Champion’s League impeded. No, I am sure that Vlad the Destroyer deliberately timed his brinkmanship to coincide with the Oscar (guilty as a guilty thing) Pistorius trial. Nothing could provide a better distraction from the plight of the Ukrainian people than wall-to-wall coverage of how the stumpy guy tried to cover up his murder. But, even for the president of Russia, deliberately disappearing a plane full of Chinese people as a distraction to his re-writing of Ukraine’s eastern and southern boundaries might have been a little excessive.

So, we should look for he or she who has most to gain to identify the culprit.

For sure, the Middle East and Israel seems to be quiet at the moment – the big news story in that region seems to be that someone has referred to David Cameron as “Gordon” – with no news regarding our imminent destruction at the hands of a mad Iranian with a nuke. And, the terrible acts being carried out against the innocent people of Syria by Assad’s followers also seem to have been conveniently brushed under the media carpet for now.

But no. I suspect that the news story about the missing plane has been put out there to distract us from the misdeeds of someone far more dangerous and cunning than Messrs Putin or Assad.

……the Max Clifford trial isn’t getting that much coverage is it?
