Don’t forget to clear out your drawers……

Now you’ve finally got to your last day just remember to do all those irritating things I am sure the BBC will expect you to do!

  • Return all items belonging to the BBC including your breakfast mug, any pens and pencils , your stapler  AND any cutlery you have pinched from the Staff Canteen.
  • Hand in your ID badge to Security at Reception
  • Ensure you have cleaned out your drawers.  You will be expected to return if you leave Dirty Drawers behind!!

That’s it then .  an EARA ended!



Good luck!


Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen – it’s working!!


Wow it just goes to show what can be achieved in a few short days!

Gather a few world leaders together to hear how  the planet is heating up and we are all doomed, and what happens  – without any effort on anyone’s part – we get snow

I hadn’t expected results so fast

Well done!

Perhaps we could leave them all in Copenhagen – now they’re all together – and set them some more challenges – the financial crisis for example!

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot – what about your Telegraph column!!

Are you sure this retirement malarky is a good idea?

I  – for one – am VERY concerned about your future journalistic career.

How on earth are you going to cobble together that column you write in a certain Sunday paper  when you’ve  cut yourself off from the ready supply of material?

I’d keep your email account open if I were you or you could find they  also give you the boot

Mark my words –  You could be heading for parlous times.

Don’t do it!!

The thought of you begging is just Unmanly and not pretty!

The foggy Boggy bump

The mist is hung around the bay

The outlook was somewhat Foggy

In the gloom a  resounding crash was heard

Said the harbour Master  – “Oh here comes Boggy!”

More Hot Air…….


So the Met Office has announced the last decade was the hottest on record

Well  may be a lot of the problem is due to all the hot air being generated by the differing views of all the “Research Scientists”

And the current HOT SPOT over Copenhagen

Anyway we don’t need to save the Planet – the Planet will survive

Us Humans – Ah – that is a different matter!!!

So now we have to give up food to live longer??

So – It’s another joyous day of joyless research !

According to my newspaper

“Extreme diets – just above malnutrition levels –  will add 25 years to the average lifespan”

And we have to cut out meat, fish and nuts!

Which – I suppose – doesn’t  actually leave a lot to eat anyway!

All this so we can live to be 100.

Well I can tell you that isn’t necessarily so.

My dear dad – “Lord Moor Common”  – is 100 and he has definitely lived on quantities of all the “wrong” things his entire life!

So stuff the research – I’m off to have a full English breakfast  and be dammed!

Oh good Grief – now the Christmas Pudding is being blamed


Is nothing sacred!  According to the latest bit of Barmy Research highlighted in my paper this morning  –  the Christmas Pud – that bastion of the British way of life – is now blamed for contributing to Global Warming!


I bet the penguins hanging on to the Antarctic icebergs will be surprised to hear that their way of life is secure –  providing a small island – many thousands of miles away –cuts out the sultanas and candied peel from their  festive Puds – ONCE A YEAR!!

Is it me??

The world has truly Gone Mad!
