For those that like that sort of thing, that is the sort of thing they like.
Thus spake Miss Jean Brodie, talking about the Girl Guides (6 minutes 25 seconds in). For me, it's soccer. There is of course one thing more boring than soccer and that is people talking about soccer endlessly. Today has been particularly bad. I turned off Radio 4 at 7.30 when the sports news was on, but found that they were still on about football at 8 o'clock. By 9 o'clock David Cameron was talking about it. What the hell had it to do with the PM ? Just turned the 1 o'clock news on and they're at it again. Other big news story ? Prince Harry to go to Afganistan. So important to let the Taliban know, isn't it ? Oh yes, something happening in Syria and Greece. So kind of the BBC to let us know.
