That poem is bloody wonderful...and oh so true.

Nowadays, they don't do interviews like that any longer, they send a bloke round, on his own, who does the camera, does the story, does the recording, the whole thing...and he sits there and gets you talking, telling you his own stories, once you get him incensed enough to let down his guard....and then, he tells you that he'll only be able to use the quiet bits, as they're not allowed to put the passionate bits on the TV.


And so, the days of the Beige, Bland and Blind voices arrived...

Bloody Cowards!

ALL it takes is ONE brave media person to step out and decide to tell The Emperor he has no clothes on....and he can do that by letting someone else do the stepping...
