Martin looked a bit bemused by the graphics when he was doing the story of the Transit of Venus. Funny!

Well not necessarily a promotion. He has been doing the reporting for a fair few weeks now. He is freelancing and still occasionly does presenting as well - although I'm not too sure if he's done any night shifts recently.

I think sky news is an exceptional news station, that has the most accurate news on Iraq in my opinion.



However The name of the programme 'Little John' is offensive;deeply insulting.Also it's not descriptive by any means, so why is it called that?This name is hurtful and is almost an allegation.



Therefore; in conclusion I ask you to change the name or I will e-mail the Government.

Why does it offend you?

The programme is named after the presenter - Richard Littlejohn.

We are not Sky News - we are are fansite to Sky News. So therefore we cannot do anything about LittleJohns name....... I fail to see how calling a TV show by your surname is offensive
