Don't agree generally, but she did do a very cringe worthy 'interview' with Serena Williams during Wimbledon.

Today on the M40 - f*ck them all.

Been like that on the A2 at Eltham for months. 30mph for what feels like an eternity.

They'll never go. May increase the limit back to 50 but the effort they went to to install them, they're never coming out.

I'm guessing he just did the whole Kings of the Wild Frontier album, which is what he's done at other gigs this year.

Seriously under-rated is Adam. His very best work actually came before he was famous pre face paint, when he was a good old punk. Some great stuff.

Police seize all phones from accident sites now. So even if that text you sent was while you were stationary, you might still be liable if you have a crash soon after. Saw a woman sending a text while going round a roundabout yesterday. Utter fvckwittery

The outdated practice of letting a women get out of a lift first, yes by all means if its practicable but if she's at the back of a busy lift it looks silly and awkward.

Just been in a lift with 6 men and 1 women and it gets the ground floor and one bloke makes a ridiculous play of moving aside for her and sticking his arm out to stop anyone else leaving, it was incredibly over the top and the women herself looked embarrassed by it.

I drove home to the less than enthralling sound of Jonathan Agnew prattling on about some Equestrian event. Who the hell would be remotely interested apart from friends or relatives of the competitors? It was about as conducive to radio as golf (which 5Live tend to cover virtually non-stop when there's a big tournament on too).

I have to say I love golf on the radio. Very soothing.

But I also suffered the Jonathan Agnew - equestrian mash-up and later on in the evening they had poor old Ian Robertson struggling his way through a women's rugby sevens game between Canada and Australia. Quite a niche market for that one too I would have thought.

All the time.

It's astonishing the number of drivers who don't seem to be aware that their vehicles are equipped with indicators.
Also pedestrians who just don't look before stepping into the road, half of them on mobile phones. Muppets.

Five live do exactly the same with the football commentary. Settle down to listen to "exclusive coverage" of a PL game involving Palace. 90 seconds after kick off, "Lets go over to Aintree to see what's happening in the racing." Three minutes later, "Lets go over to see what's happening in the Rugby at Twickenham etc etc. It just isn't f*cking live commentary. It's nothing more than a multi sport version of Soccer Saturday on the radio. Wankers.

Second safest bet ever: no matter how carefully you coil the cable up after using it, the next time it sees daylight it will get all twisted and knotted up.
