Telephone Wind-up...

aThe US election reports have now been pushed into second place in the news agenda by Russel Brand and Jonathan Ross's telephone antics. Brand has now quit the BBC and Ross has been suspended for the next three months.
The younger generations don't see all the fuss while old foggies like me think that they really went too far this time. I personally will never agree with swearing on the telly. Filthy-mouth Gordon Ramsay has a lot to answer for.
But I am all for telephone wind-ups when they are funny!

Just like the time, when our most famous local DJ, Paul "Goffy" Gough set me up by getting an impersonator to pretend president Mandela wanted a table at Krimo's...
The guy really sounded like our Nelson, but did I fall for the scam?
No Way, José!

Later Goffy sent me a copy of his wind-ups CD. Funny but not obnoxious!

What occurs to me about Brand and Ross is do they give any thought to the people who are dependent on them for employment - especially Ross. Whilst his salary is suspended will he do the right thing and see that his co-workers don't suffer?
I can't help wondering if you would like the Lord to visit? Mandelson that is.

No, I doubt that anyone will have thought about those.
Not sure whether Mandalson will come back again to Hartlepool...
