There is no more... again

I've tried the new format for a couple of weeks now, and I have to say that I am having some issues with it.

The main one is just finding the motivation to write stuff about news from several days ago. I had been hoping to catch up on last Thursday's and last Friday's JV programmes over the weekend but a busy schedule has prevented me from doing so. It is now Tuesday morning and I feel that the relevance and impact of writing stuff about a programme broadcast five days ago is lost. I had hoped that the "catch up" format would work, but - and to be honest - I can make better use of my time!

I guess my heart just is not in this thing any more and so for that reason I have to regrettably say again that there will be no more daily updates.

The blog will remain in place as a testament to what has gone before, and I will update it from time-to-time if I hear JV being particularly banal and also when the BBC choose to communicate with me directly.

I'm very sorry about this, and I thank you sincerely for all of the support and encouragement that you have given. It really is appreciated very much.

Vine was recently interviewed by the Radio Academy (you can hear it here: and a few weeks ago the chap doing the interview was actively seeking questions to be asked of the man. I sent a few, but they were not used. Instead, Vine preaches to the converted about how good he is, how good his programme is, how he can do no wrong and while still happily wallowing in the fame of the Gordon Brown "bigot" thing from two years ago. Listening to him talk with such attitude really annoys me.

I heard it!

"... they drink x% more alcohol in Scotland than they do in the UK". Devolution must have come early, and I missed it.
