    Agreed! It is (to quote Peter Karran) all very clubby clubby, pally pally, chummy chummy.

    Yes, I agree, Declan. They seem to be creating their own language: ' Granite obelisks - recently installed for the first time along the Island's longest walking route - have sparked negativity.'
  3. A couple of weeks in 'Britain's Best Little Prison' should see him completely rehabilitated and ready to become a valuable member of society.

    No it isn't good. It's pure unadulterated pap. It appears to be catering for what Jasper Carrot used to refer to as the Sun Reader Mentality. I don't really care if some people love Marmite, and others hate it. Whether scone should be pronounced scon or scown, and whether is is better to put the jam or the cream on first, and whether I should position my toilet roll so that it unrolls from the front or the back. I also do not care where Wotton is lurking, and I definitely do not care whether or not she gets Ben's Banger every day. It is now only worth turning on to get the latest weather info from the duty forecaster.
  5. It looks to me like someone doing Dad-Dancing.
  6. I don't really mind a statue of the Bee Gees, but Madness? (That idea Suggs!) "If the sculpture is of high quality then it may develop its own appeal as a work of art with the subject matter having less importance with time. It will no doubt acquire a nickname, like the Dublin statue of Molly Malone (“The tart with the cart”), but the reaction of future generations may well be , “Who?”" . . and definitely not The Who. (Even if Pete Townsend's Dad did play in the Squadronaires, and Happy Jack lived in the sand at the Isle of Man.)
  7. I think you might have just Started A Joke there, Charlie.

    .. . . . or Howard's Howitzer or Wotton's Whoppers or Dollin's Donger or Williams' Winkie ?

    What a brilliant and original idea - 'famous' people telling the listener about their favourite records. They could call it 'Tax Haven Island Discs'. (Roy Plomley must be turning in his grave.)

    A strange change of tense on this item from MR news: The driver is out of the vehicle and is being checked by medics, while the road remained closed for over two hours while the scene was cleared.
  11. Maybe a High-undai. (A RED one, of course!)

    Formlia for formula. Infastructure for infrastructure. (And the TWO lady newsreaders who pronounce NEW as NOO, and the other lady presenter who doesn't seem to know that words such as running, seeing etc have a 'g' at the end of the word.)

    . . . . and that MR has a paid (presumably) News Editor. Actually - I see that they have taken our advice and changed advise to advice. (So it seems that MF are performing the role of News Editor for MR)

    Agree about Ms Wotton. She is a very good "serious" presenter - now reduced to trying to get "Ben's Banger"! I hope she won't be disappointed. (Ben himself has always been lightweight.) Agree also that Beth is probably the best serious presenter/interviewer that MR have ever had, but now she has been reduced to presenting drivel. It would seem that the dumbing down started at about the time that Mr Brindley was handed the reins.

    Nah - I reckon there was only ONE white shirt, and it was passed from one "photographee" to the next, during a mass photo-shoot. (MR doesn't have a Money Tree, don't y' know?)
