And in other news, bears shit in the woods and bear shit does not stick to rabbit fur.
Well, I used to work in Nautical Miles as it happens, working with ex-RN Navigation officers. We always referred to steaming days rather than distance as it was easier to brief and to avoid confusion. Most of the vessels we were monitoring were averaging around 13knots: so approx 315 NM AGW WP, IIRC.@bigeye
My (current) drip is that the BBC seem to, more and more, talk of distances in kilometres (even when nautical miles should be being used). I accept there is a minority of people who can quote what a nautical mile is but all of us are brought up with the statute mile.
Is this some form of Brexit snub, or just some form of ignorance on the part of the programme makers?
Fine but then hang them on their own words rather than just shout at them.Never a truer word was writ.
I would that suggest that the real reason for the aggressive nature of the interviews conducted by many of the characters mentioned here is that the nearer you get to seat of power the more it's apparent that those that wield it are ALL a cloud of self serving, desperate c*nts.
It's a fair point. My Thursday nights generally used to be late thanks to watching QT then The Week, neither of which I would dream of missing. With the cancellation of one and the continual ramping up of bias and dumbing down of the other, I tend to get to sleep earlier on a Thursday nowadays. The only thing I tend to watch by choice on BBC is the news (and recently we've been casting around for an alternative), "The Repair Shop", and whatever SWMBO tells me I'm watching (not much). I haven't actually watched a full episode of QT for at least 6 months.
Ten years ago I used to watch BBC TV as a first choice for any political coverage, for entertainment, information and comedy programmes. Over the last two years that has mostly stopped, and at the very least reduced markedly; my tastes haven't changed massively, but the output of the BBC has. I can't watch any of our national broadcaster's output without noticing I'm being preached at, I no longer have the same level of trust in the news provided, and coverage of politics is so biased toward a metropolitan liberal standpoint it is beyond parody.

Murdoch follows the money. If he thought public opinion was different, we'd get the same reporting as the Ozzies.Sky News Australia is brilliant.
Wish Sky in the UK had the same sensibilities.
