The economy is still in the doldrums, public sector pensions are being slashed, there's turmoil in Libya and other Middle Eastern states. What do Breakfast run a 5 minute segment on this morning, at 8.20? BBC reporter grows beard, viewers complain, reporter duly shaves it off.

I give up. Daybreak can't really be any worse, can it?

Yes, far far worse. They had a fellow on yesterday with an interesting slo-mo camera and they didn't let him say a word.

BBC Breakfast had a 5 minute slot on the art of whistling FFS

People should read the New Statesman whilst eating their breakfast, as I do.

Some totally not kerrazeee family on today who made musical instruments from household equipment.

Yes, it put me in a foul mood for the rest of the day.

Bring back Jeremy B

You'll be wanting the return of Juliet Morris next.

Why the hell does the BBC think the great British public needs to be told how to buy tickets for the Olympics - why the fuck am I watching the 'olympic family' trying (and failing) to book tickets live on the Breakfast News?

Fuck me!

Just had an item on 'has the cost of your shopping gone up?' that revealed people are buying fewer clothes but spending more on each item: 'There's been a trend towards quality and things that will last - buying clothes you can wear for perhaps a year'.

A year? That's not lasting. There are several things in my wardrobe older than I am. And at least 70% of my clothes are more than 5 years old. I can't think of anything I've bought expecting it to last for only 1 year.

Caught a bit of the nearly-9-we can't-be-arsed slot - they seemed to have decided that the news is now too awful to contemplate, so here's a nice man in a nice cardigan singing nice songs about how nice Ireland is.

nice man in a nice cardigan

That would Eoin Mc Love.



Loved the nuclear expert demonstrating a Japanese power station using upturned vending cups.

Sian was looking a bit frumpy this morning, that's not what I pay my licence fee for.

There was a guy on the oother morning explaining the effects of earthquakes on different size buildings by using a set of deely boppers (sp?)

Next week: The economy explained in smarties.

Carole looked like one of the waitresses from Allo Allo in her outfit today.

I particularly liked their hi-tech props the other day when they used polystyrene cups to demonstrate what was happening to the reactor in Japan.

absolutely, I regard my jeans I bought about 2 years ago as my new pair...

actually, how would any item of clothing last less than a year? wearing it everyday until it wore out?

Lento_ - 16 Mar 2011 11:18:47 (#20 of 1505)

I'd want my money back if any non-sock item of clothing lasted less then a year.
