But it hasn't... so in the meantime, let's enforce the law, broadcasting code and have the broadcasters exercise their duty of care to their employees.

I have noticed today that BBC Breaking News twitter account has been writing in International language- UK government and British Minster rather than just Government and Secretary/Minster. Never used to.

Did anyone watch the actual Dramarama on C4 last night or like me are you all sick enough of it dominating the news without wanting to spend two hours on a Monday night watching it too.

What baffled me yesterday was how in the lead up to it there was quite a bit of coverage of the trial of parking lorries on an airfield (which sums up how ludicrous the whole thing is), but then once it happened there was virtually no coverage of it at all on the major broadcasters websites.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

I recorded it. We don't intend to watch it until well after March 29th, when either we'll be living in a cave deep in mid Wales, while every city in the UK continues to burn, using a bicycle dynamo to power the PVR and telly, or absolutely nothing untoward will have happened (a bit like the Y2K panic 20 years ago) and we'll here at home as normal. 50/50 I reckon.

Y2k was blown out of all proportion. Brexit on the other hand will probably be far worse in the knowledge that (unlike Y2K in the way it was presented) we could have avoided it. But we are where we are so let's build ourselves some nice Anderson shelters and then go round shouting "Put That Light Out!" every night.
