Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

The love for Loose Women never fails to amaze me. How is it appropriate for a serious news presenter like Charlene White to be the presenter of such a sexist load of rubbish? Imagine the talk there would be if Sophie Raworth or Fiona Bruce turned up presenting such a programme on the BBC?

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Brekkie made a ludicrous claim that having entertainment shows like Dancing on Ice and sport on TV is causing people to break the lockdown rules! The argument from him and timbouk seems to be that if they can’t leave the house and go to work then no one else (who have a reasonable excuse) should do...

Re: NHS Clapping

10 months on the most offensive thing about all this remains that Ms Plas claimed to have had the "spontaneous" idea for the clapping, despite the fact it had been happening throughout Europe and New York City for weeks beforehand.

My fault, sorry. I didn't quite realise what I'd be unleashing.
Never mind, just an observation.

He certainly begged enough for it to be lifted. It was a bit unedifying the way he was getting on round here.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I can't help but feel though that this whole saga is a repeat of the travel corridors chaos. People have made plans despite knowing that they could be changed at a moments notice. Common sense was not applied in the first place! just like everything this year just because the government say you can...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Desperately sad times. You can’t help but feel sympathetic for those that this affects. My mum and dad (who are in their seventies) decided months ago that they would have lunch themselves and me and then my sister and her family would visit for very short periods of time to exchange gifts etc. it j...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Having been good at keeping rota talk off the site and penalising people for posting off-topic posts (and random political stuff) it feels like the Kay Burley affair has set this policy back to square one.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds Brekkie's negativity tiresome at times. He has dug himself into a hole with the Kay Burley situation and he can’t get out of it now. I doubt he’s a fan of her, though he’ll love her confrontational attitude to Tory ministers, it’s more that the story emerged ...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Perfectly OK it seems for Kay Burley and Beth Rigby to be out flouting Covid regulations, unlike all the others that TVF have castigated for the same actions. I’m not sure why Brekkie seems to be doing his best to shut it down, I never knew he was such a big Kay Burley fan His latest post on the va...
