Now I am by no means a fan of the syrup-topped, blarney-spouting dee-diddily Irishman. I would not normally listen to his show but on Monday I turned on my wife's car to find her radio tuned to BBC R2. As I reached to put R4 on, I stopped. The comedy Irish presenter and current "World's Loudest Sportsjacket" record holder was talking arrant good sense. Apparently he does not play dedications. However someone had written in to tell him that 40 Cdo were home and he broke his own rule to wish them a welcome home and to give a big up to British lads and lasses serving around the world. He will no doubt be severely disciplined by BBC management but Sir Terry, well done and how amazing that it is a non-British presenter who hits the issue bang on the head?
