The outage, which began at 1520 BST, affected thousands of homes in West London, said energy firm EDF.

"We were watching the game in a pub in Kew," Donnelly told the BBC.....

a) It's on the London News section not the whole bloody site.

b) It was a fairly big deal for those in SW London as they had their water cut off for 4 hours as well.

c) The quoted section that you used was a fraction of the article and near the end.

I posted it in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' because last night it was the No.1 most read news article on the BBC News web site. Worth a little Analysis I thought.

It is about as interesting as reading your thread or watching the sea evaporate.

Not intended to be interesting, rather incredulous.

Just wanted to remind us of the true values and genuine interests of the British people, whilst soldiers are serving in Afghan

Kockbreath,

As Gremlin signed his post as 'Prat', I simply had the courtesy to address him as such.

How do you gauge the 'genuine interest' of British people by a newspaper article? Ive seen 4 of my lot dropped in the last few days but still found time to eat a chinese and pull my helmet off last night, it is now unfortunately 'old news' mate, at present Gods face appearing in a naan bread in Slough would hold as many words in print as a fatality.

I gauge 'genuine interest' of the UK by looking at the '10 most read stories' on the BBC web site.

I had been reading with great sadness of Royal Marine L/Cpl Michael Taylor been shot dead on Tuesday in a gun battle with insurgents in southern Afghanistan.

Maybe people were just looking at the 'Ant & Dec not watching telly' story as light relief, but to see that story as the no. 1 most read, whilst the name release of L/Cpl Michael Taylor did not even making the top 10 most read was a social comment in its self I felt.

I dont agree, the words 'Afghanistan', 'troops', 'injured' and 'killed' are common place, Id click a link to a cat that plays a cello with its feet whilst reciting Sartre but once a couple more learn how to do it I'm f*cking bored sh*tless.

I guess I must just be a bit sensative to it. If I see a story with the words 'Afghanistan', 'troops', 'injured' and 'killed' then I will read it above most other stories, read that persons name and take a moment of my time to mentally pay my respects.

Then I see mates, family, etc too busy watching big brother or whatever to pass the time of day, never mind show or pay any respect, and think 'wtf'.... ?
