The reason I say thank goodness, is I’m so glad the media have at last got a different headline to focus on. I know they do so love to dwell on all the gory details – but, for the first time in ages, the doom and gloom about the economy has been relegated to second place.
Over the last few months I have deliberately avoided watching the news bulletins as much as possible (difficult when you’re a news junkie!). On the occasions when I’ve caught them, even the newsreaders were looking fed up at having to tell the same story over and over again.
Who would have thought that such a serious health scare story could seem like a breath of fresh air?
