Slightly odd closing with Tom just now.

"I'm afraid that I will be back here tomorrow night" before swiftly dropping his scripts beneath the desk presumably in the bin and not looking too pleased.

Tough night behind the scenes I presume?


Well, if he doesn't want to be there I am sure our old favourite,Wesley Smith, will be happy to cover. Wink

Or just a little self deprecation taken too seriously by some viewers.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

I thought it was his attempt from when to emulate Paxman when he said "Martha's paying for a sin in a past life", or something similar in a Newsnight sign off!

NAT getting some flack on Twitter for the lede on the Genoa bus story




Alistair Burnett is probably turning in his grave. Not ITN's finest hour.

NAT Editorial meeting, 20.00hrs.

Editor "We need another angle on this bridge thing in Italy"

(silence from production team)

Senior producer "What about killer concrete kills people on killer bridge - could it happen here?"

Editor "Naa. Bit tabloidy for us"

Senior Producer "But GMB will probably do it tomorrow morning"

Editor "Yeah. Good point, get someone on it. It leads and I want a 2 minute package. Needs to be full of scientific words, though. Is Lawrence McGinty in the newsroom?"
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.
