What colour does arguably the broadcasting world’s most revolting babypoo brown tie collection look with your dark glasses on ?! (OK he has a few rivals on Sky sports to be fair). Andrew is a great reporter who talks TGV and sense at the same time, but oi oi oi, who buys his ties ? Who makes ties that ‘orrible?
Why do they always have to wear boring suits unless they’re in a war zone or covering a hurricane ? They look better and report better in the Marlboro style outfits, these foreign reporter blokes!
Hmmm, was wondering when eagle eye would bring that up!
I look beyond his ties but I have to agree he looks best in casual clothes, everyone does apart from Ian Woods and Keith Graves (foreign correspondents talking), it will be a long time before we see Wilson in casual clothes again unless he pops off to another war zone that doesn’t start from Bush’s desk or another hurricane that doesn’t emit from Bush’s behind.
Any more comments about the ties and I shall have to challenge you to a duel, frying pans at dawn, you call the toss, does he buy them at Walmarts or Woolies?
Of course he looks the same, probably down to good living, happy marriage and now he lives in the states, no more bombs going off over his head. Look at David Chater, stressed out or what? They should send him to the States to team up with Wilson.
Well, you’d win by default as eagleeye is def shuteye at dawn. Besides, I can’t cook. Yeah, I’m sure AW’s timeless looks are due to good, clean , all american living I’d love to see him teamed up with Mr Chater altho’ not sure how DC would take that one, and then Woodsy would have to do the flak jacket thing wouldn’t he as Sky are soooo small they can only send 2 reporters to the same place if it’s as big as the US of A. And I can’t see Woodsy with bombs falling round his dome. That takes a special kind of nutter, sorry, correspondent.
Frying pans at lunchtime…how does that sound? AWesome. We could sell tickets!!
Apart from buying ties and getting military hair cuts ?
They shmooooze with the Washington cocktail party politico set and check out the big, um, haired bimbos on rival networks. Occasional trips to trailer parks and back to Walmart for wet weather gear for the seasonal hurricane. Take the kids to school….
Why are there two Skymen in the US of A when they have a team up with Fox? All other foreign news is left to one, overworked correspondent, OR one we never see (where is Laurence Lee anyone ?).
Well, I’d rather be eating matzo ball soup and schwitzing in the hot middle east sun myself. I read Emma Hurd’s bit in the SKY magazine, shame they didn’t think to do it when Wilson was there, although I suspect his response would have read something like Stuart Ramsay’s, nothing out of the ordinary, pretty average guys living family life surrounded by hell. Bit like living in Cardiff really .
KEITH GRAVES IS TRYING TO OUT DO HIS FELLOW CORRESPONDENT WITH THE TIES!!
ps Laurence appears occasionally dressed like he’s in a scene from Gorky Park, bless him – I’d like to read his Q&A’s
