Do you remember the migrants? All those people coming here across land and sea, from North Africa and Arabia and the Indian sub-continent? In boats, sometimes. Occasionally on foot. The BBC used to lead the news with it almost every night. I’m sure I remember them doing that. Tearful migrants who only want a better life, etc.

I ask because I have seen a lot less of them recently. And yet I am prepared to bet that the numbers trying to get in have not remotely decreased – probably quite the opposite. So can anyone suggest why this is a less attractive news story to the BBC than once it was? Or am I being paranoid?
