The meat of the article *seems* to be fair 
(alternating pro- and anti- BPL statements), but the 
all-important opening and closing statements seem to 
be biased against "us".

Some would say I am reading into it too much, but IMO,

the opening sentence subtly makes it out that hams are

somehow against BPL just to be against it - we want 
it "our way".  It also establishes that BPL is one of 
those holy-grail things, consumer choice, and we hams 
are going to ruin it for everyone.  The closing 
statement is definitely pro-BPL.

Also, the article leaves out any reference to other 
countries having scrapped the BPL idea...
