Due to the novelty value of my currently being away from home in a different region (Hannington TX), I briefly flicked over to Gormless Moron Briandead circa 07:10 in the vain hope that the regional bulletin might air at anything like the correct time.
Was greeted by the "pre TOTH
" national weather occurring at about 07:10, and the "TOTH" itself occurring at about 07:12. I have no idea what preceding occurrences had caused the timings to be this far off (nor do I care).
It's astounding how utterly incapable this programme seems to be of adhering to the intended timing structure, like Breakfast manages to do. Timings going wildly off-kilter once in a blue moon would be fine, but it's a bloody miracle if GMB actually runs to time.
At least Piers & Susannah threw to Charlotte for a quick news-brief immediately post-titles, so the regional bulletin was at about 07:14 which wasn't such a bad delay.
I'm still a European.
