    If you had the chance to banish something from Sky News to the depth of Room 101 what would they be?

    pole cam and the current music

    yours?

    I disagree with you completely there.

    I like the new music – it suits the channel in my opinion. The pole cam is also a great addition as it gives loads of new camera angles which weren’t possible before.

    I’d banish Littlejohn to room 101

    Nah, I’d keep Richard Littlejohn, as he is the highlight of the evening. He takes no prisoners and tells it as it is, and if people don’t like it he doesn’t give a damn! Great stuff.

    Banishing something from Sky News? Hmmm…. that’s actually a hard one. So I’ll be boring and agree with edofis on Francis Wilson. As that would mean more Lisa Burke on our screen!

    Id get rid of Sky News Australia’s management and replace them with a team able to get stuff done.

    I would put nothing from Sky News into Room 101, the only thing I don’t like is that there is no Interactive (even a basic interactive) on Freeview, and my emails to them go unanswered.

    Sky news is the best.

    All the people who decided not to reply to their loyal (paying!) public’s emails but send them an auto response invitation to join the inane and intensely boring ‘forum’ instead.

    Julliette Foster, couldnt agree more. BE GONE, I say

    Kay Burley (whenever she’s onscreen Sky News becomes The Kay Burley Show) and Emma Crosby (for her awful diction and word-mangling tendencies!)

    I guess me and paellataffy won’t be getting on then

    I’d banish the guy (or girl) that keeps allowing Kay to have so much time off, I mean half the time she’s not there, must be part time contract she’s on nowadays

    I’d either put kay on the saturday night overnight shift or i wud put her as a producer or sack her.

    For one of the main presenters,she has terrible diction,bad grammar,bad clothes for her age(51) and she portrays the “Im the best “image presenting the news.

    Emma Crosby,Juliette Foster,Juliette Errington,Sheila Jansen or anna shud replace kay the cow burley.

    Juliet Errington replacing Kay as a presenter?? That’s would be something new. She’s a reporter, Barry.

    Sacrilege! Wash your mouth out with soap and water. I have never read such blasphemy in my whole life! – Kay Burley is the Queen of Sky News.

    51 you say? She looks bloody good for 51 so, if I look half as good at that age I’ll consider myself a lucky man.

    we dont however get on and rarely speak

    You’ll probably speak even less now after the cow comment!

    I don’t believe she’s 51, why did it say on the sky website some time ago that she was 42? (was only like a year ago). I’d thought she’d be only 43 by now, plus she can’t have had that much surgery, I only ever read that she had her eyes done. I also remember reading on mediaguardian that she was that age, when they were considering presenters who might transfer to ITV to replace Dermot Munningham. She can’t have lied about her age to everyone?

    PS, I do know that Moria Stewart is 50, and she looks very good for her age.

    she IS 51 -believe it or not.

    The queen of sky news is ,obviously,anna botting-with the queens mother being vivienne creegor.

    Princesses are the two juliette’s,emma,lorna,sheila and paula

    The evil witches are mai and KAY BURLEY

    King of sky news is jeremy

    knights are chris,david,allan,steve and martin popplewell.

    evil knight who needs his eyes fixed is martin stanford!

    and as for the representatives who should have been there picking the award for sky news—emma and steve should have replaced kay and her sidekick….whilechris shud have reped martin//!!

    I dunno why you’ve got a think against her. Her style might be a bit too sexy and flirtatious, but at least shes lively and completely competent especially in times of breaking news. At least she’s not dead wood like Mai Davies, (yawn), and crucially she seems to have good chemistry with most people she presents with, you never notice any tension unlike with Juliet Foster.

    I agree with you with re to mai(yawn)

    Shes not sexy-emma,sheila and lorna are sexy!!

    she comes across as being stuck up and “know all “.

    the sooner she moves to a shift i wont see like news today cos im in skool or the overnight!!

    thats interesting that you notice tension with juliette foster.

    Who mainly with-she best gets on with chris in my opinion

    By d by she has not bin on in since last thursday!!

    Well in the beginning she didn’t seem to get on with Chris or anyone when she had to start working with other presenters. Their was a long thread running some months ago about how frosty she could be. She use to have a habbit of ignoring and refusing to comment on what a fellow presenter said, and for sounding quite rude in interviews.
