I don't recall the same intensity of reportting of the floods in the "North" the other week.


Her Highness can not skate right now...

I am sure, you are right with the Thames vs. The North the other week - "lakewood" - but remember - that Her Highness Lady Kay Burley can not skate on the THAMES just now...Classeyham!

My apology if this has been repeated on the forums but what has happened to Andrew Wilson and where is he now.

I have found a report on the web that says Robert Nisbet will take his place in September and Catherine Jacob will take Robert Nisbet's place as Environment commentator. Here is the link

Honestly, I'm away for a few days, and you all start squabbling over Dame Kay.

She's mine. End of.

I have to say, the bits that i did see of her were quite gripping actually. First we were brought news of how she might have a runny nose, and then, a major drama occured as she started screaming (quite literally) at an elderly couple to walk slowly in through the flood water as they tried to make their escape from the Ice Queen.

Simply thrilling.



Anyway can't wait to see her daily broadcast to the nation (assuming she's not away) tomurrow as I've been away for the past 10 days in Tunisia and will be going to land of Oz for a month on wednesday.

Is Sunday & Saturday Live now going to be with Lorna & Steve? They seem to have new opening titles, like the old sky news today ones.

Yeah, she hasn't been doing much at all, though I would've thought the current Foot & Mouth outbreak would have given her another opportunity to get stuck in a lab reporting on some tests.

She was dunking some test tubes into the flood water the other week, to show us the water was polluted, no need really, you could tell that by all the turds floating around that it wasnt Evian quality
