    I think the Beeb has seriously lost the plot. Wish it was back to warm and cosy Blue Peter, Andy Pandy and Morecombe and Wise! Glory days indeed!!

    No doubt she and her half witted colleagues are hoping for riots over here this summer.
    As predicted by me last Tuesday.

    Just watched Anita McVeigh announce the passing of Dame Vera Lynn. Initially she was reading out Twitter Posts,desperately trying to find one from a celebrity.
    Why do they have to tell us what people post on Twitter? If I wanted to know I would be on it!

    Anyway she then started rambling some facts about her, trying her best to give the impression that she knew what she was talking about, but failing miserably.

    I then googled Dame Vera, and quickly followed McVeigh as she was reading from a Wikipedia page.

    Cheating or modern journalism?

    Did i read on this forum that only 5% of UK population use Twitter?

    I have no idea why it's held up as an example of public opinion. It's a bigger collection of nut-jobs (to use a famous forum expression of late!) than Facebook.

    Strangely I watched something on the BBC these last few days and it was very good.

    The Salisbury Poisonings.

    If you haven't watched it, worth catching up with on iPlayer. It's a docu drama and a good watch.

    What struck me though, assuming it is made as authentically as possible, was what a shit MSM we have got.

    Without spoiling it, a copper was exposed to the nerve agent, taken ill and critical in hospital and within seconds of it being released to the press his wife was being pelted with text messages and calls from the press.
    There were several examples of this piss-poor press pack behaviour.

    Probably the worser one in the series was when the only fatality's family was harassed in similar circumstances.
