Colin Brazier is in Jerusalem now on Sky News - in his correspondent rather than presenter role at the moment.

I don't like the way News 24 simulcast with BBC World on the crisis. The female presenter has the most annoying accent.

That would be Lyse Doucet you are referring to - it's a strange Canadian accent - but if you can stand that, she is actually one of the most knowledgeable presenters around and most fluent broadcasters. It's easy enough to understand what she's saying, but admittedly some people can't bear her accent.

I 'm Canadian myself, and I know that Lyse's first language is french. She's from New Brunswick and they speak french there. I've also been a fan of Lyse. She is really good at doing live coverage. I saw Ben Brown and Clive Merie talking to one another on a feed that they have. This has been really good coverage. Lyse always brings us viewers really good coverage. I always find the BBC to have the best news team around. I have been watching a little bit of the coverage and it's really good.

I just want to say that Fox News coverage of this has been second to none. Puts Sky and the BBC to shame in terms of Live Pictures and Location of Reporters/Presenters.
