Danny Dyer, Shaun Ryder,  Bez, Stacey Dooley, and anyone else who doesn't talk proper.  Oh and Dr. Julian Boon because he's just weird. :D

...voice overs between programmes now regularly on the BBC with over the top regional dialects. Makes me cringe just listening to them!

Voiceovers annoy me ~ full stop. :D Those between programmes are particularly annoying because they seem to be 100% louder from the studio and I am forever turning the volume on my TV up and down. I won't watch any programmes that have the people I've mentioned in because I can't stand their voices.....and I missed one Brian blinking Blessed!

I've not watched the EFL highlights on Quest since he took over. The face, the voice...

Add to that reporters and politicians, using incorrect grammar when they keep telling me that abstract thing things have been “ put into place “ as in , for example: “ Weather warnings have been put into place “ . No they haven’t  ! !  Weather warnings have been issued . That’s all you need to say. If you think they’ve been put into place, what place were they in before they were in the place they are now and what place are they going to be put into afterwards ? We have a rich language. Abstract things can be effected , introduced , issued , instituted, announced , as the case may be , and politicians should know that laws are not put into place they are passed. Drives me nuts.

The quality of grammar and spelling on legitimate news websites is appalling. Surely they can employ people who can speak (or at least understand) English? Proofreaders are clearly a thing of the past...

Harriet Harman was the worlds worst for my other pet hate, people who say “you know “ in every sentence. I wish interviewers would say No we don’t know , you idiot, that’s why we asked you to come on here and explain.

Well it seems it's too elitist to expect "good English and grammar " at university these days, mustn't mark down for incorrect spelling or grammar apparently. :rolleyes:

So once again dumbing down to the lowest, instead of raising to the highest even in universities,  where I  always thought clever clogs attended.

Unlike some years ago when university was for genuinely clever people, any old thicko can go now and while they are acquiring a pretty ordinary pass in a completely useless subject they will probably rack up a huge debt that they are unlikely ever to pay back.

Hence Bournemouth University..  

They have a good time here though so it's well worth it :t:

What exactly has she done wrong in this instance. She's told friends she's ready to forgive what's happened in the past? She's told friends she adored the duke? She's listened to medical advice not to fly? 

The commentator seriously comparing flying in the late stages of pregnancy to having a home birth is the only ludicrous thing i read here.
