Can you honestly not see the difference in the way it's reported?

I can.

Not sure why you asked then if you can see the BBC version is very different to what was in the Express.

Won't somebody think of the children?
Home Office ‘ignoring offers to give homes to child refugees’
Boris Johnson’s government is defying its obligations to offer sanctuary to vulnerable minors...Boris Johnson’s government is defying its obligations to offer sanctuary to vulnerable minors. Councils across the UK have volunteered to take hundreds of unaccompanied children from across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. However, numbers of arrivals are said to be “pitifully low to nonexistent”.

Johnson told parliament on Thursday he was reducing legal protections for refugee children in his new Brexit bill (which) jettisons a commitment in EU regulations that secures safeguards for asylum-seeking minors in Europe who want to reunite with family in the UK.
A Home Office spokesperson said: “Protecting vulnerable children will remain our priority after Brexit and this new clause reaffirms our commitment while clarifying the role of parliament and government in negotiations.”
So Boris says the bill reduces legal protection for refugee children and the Home Office says it reaffirms a committent to protecting vulnerable children. Just not the refugee ones presumably.

One of us - or both of us - is misunderstanding the other I think.

In my first comment on this particular topic, I looked at both sources and then highlighted the differences.

Merry Christmas to all...

BUT..... For those who think its all a 'done deal' and are happily munching on their Xmas Turkey,looking forward to the 'Sunlit Uplands'

Heres a few cold ,hard, facts, That cannot be ignore. The truth about the future

https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...share_btn_link

The last paragraph implores the government to 'fight' any decision by the Treasury to take the easy route they traditionally have . and to instead , direct funding to the Midlands and the North if there is to be any hope of improving productivity in the UK. As this 'plea' has gone unanswered for years,I doubt very much whether the 'fat cats' of the South will listen.. Fiddling while Rome burns' comes to mind .Or too little ,too late .

From Frans Timmermans, Deputy Commission President:

“I know you now. And I love you. For who you are and what you gave me. I’m like an old lover. I know your strengths and your weaknesses. I know you can be generous but also miserly. I know you believe yourself to be unique and different. And of course you are in many ways, but perhaps less than you think....You will never stop referring to the rest of us as ‘the continent’...it helps you to create a distance you think you need. But it also prevents you from seeing that in fact we all need a bit of distance between us. All European nations are unique.”
SNIP

Timmermans concludes, however, that the UK “will always be welcome to come back”.

Quite well put, I thought.

Quite, eloquent and relevant - but, sadly, wasted.

From the dark side
No 10 squares up to EU chief Ursula von der Leyen
Downing Street squared off against the EU tonight, insisting it would not extend trade talks past the end of this year despite Brussels' top bureaucrat saying a deal was 'impossible' by December
