Today's issue that affects me: Seriously, you are just taking the p155 out of your listeners, right? Go on, you can tell me. It will be our secret. I won't tell anybody, I promise.
Why does the BBC so hate Britain?
NUJ to ballot on no-confidence vote in BBC director general
"NUJ members are committed to defending jobs and quality journalism at the BBC and we are asking readers, listeners and viewers to join with us in this battle. And that is why we will be organising the no confidence ballot against Mark Thompson, the architect of this butchery."
You also missed this piece of Shock Horror news from the Telegraph:
Flight QF31 flew for around two-and-a-half hours with three functioning engines before landing safely in Dubai. None of the 258 passengers or 25 crew on board the Qantas Airbus A380 were injured, a spokeswoman for the airline said.
I have made PLENTY of story suggestions for you over the past 10 months, which you continue to ignore. There is, of course, another alternative: If you have nothing to say, say nothing!
1) IMF - Should Britain give money to the IMF even if some of it goes to save the Euro? : Oh good, a vote. Should I text "Yes" or "No" to 88291? Plenty of opportunity here to expel sufficient hot air to inflate a passenger-carrying balloon, but it is not going to influence the minds of those who make these decisions, is it? Changing nothing again, as usual. Next...
2) UMBRELLAS - Have you ever been injured by an umbrella? : No. Georgi Markov was, and didn't live to tell the tale. There is only one possible solution: BAN ALL UMBRELLAS, NOW! I think you'd better get Galloway on the phone for an expert opinion though. I don't own an umbrella and cannot remember ever using one. Quality journalism this is not. Next...
3) INSURANCE - We’re joined by Martin Lewis. Every year insurance companies find new things that we need to insure ourselves against. But what insurance do we really need to buy and what can we do without? : Thanks, but we're already sorted out for this, and we always take Martin's advice from his web site when looking for new or replacement policies, so I have no need to listen. I wonder if anybody does umbrella injury insurance....? Next...
4) HEDGES - Is it ever right to use a hedge for a loo? Find out more in this article from the Daily Mail : And all is right with the world as you end the week with a story from the Daily Mail, and which confirms that this is anything but quality journalism. Well done!
