Since retiring earlier this year, I have spent a lot more time watching or listening to the news (I know I should get a hobby). Some of the celebrity interviews instantly cause me to slip into rant mode, mainly because their voices make my ears bleed. Examples include: Kenny Dalglish (can't understand a word he says, despite having lived in Scotland for a number of years) Any foreign football manager (cliches sound even worse in a dodgy accent) John Prescott (instantly gets the blood pressure soaring) Chris Huhne (smug, slimey bastard who should never have been let anywhere near power) However, these have all been surpassed recently by the Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, who is all over the airwaves at the moment thanks to the Commenwealth Conference and the Qantas strike. God, the noise! Anyone want to trump these prime examples of ear-drum assault?
