The Today programme is now producing its own anti-government protest songs. It was only a matter of time, I suppose.

We make two big journeys in our story it’s often said,
One when we are married, one when we are dead.
I thought we were protected by a golden trust,
Now I’ve been abandoned, your words have turned to rust.
This bed we made
Went off the rails
We lie on nails
Our dreams they fade
We had a deal
And still you steal
Incidentally, is anybody else getting more than a little sick of BBC journalists doing these “look at me” reports which serve little purpose other than to raise their own profiles and create a bit of ego-soothing Twitter buzz?
