Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately: The lady who got her hand stuck down the toilet. Why is there always a single shoe by the side of the road? The British media are royal sycophants? Stuff left behind. David Beckham is no actor. Donald or Duke? Cyclist should be banned from the […]

Why are airlines so bad at public relations? British Airways is the latest airline to suffer a PR disaster. The CEO said too little too late. Dressed in a high-vis jacket, speaking from BA’s operations centre near Heathrow, Alex Cruz tried to repair the damage done to the brand after the global IT crash that […]

The environment is being destroyed by the Supermarkets of Britain. When you shop at any of Britain’s big supermarkets, you’re not given environmentally friendly, biodegradable bags to take your shopping home in. You’re given plastic bags. These bags can take hundreds of years to break down. They’re clogging drains and waterways and killing wildlife. The […]

Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately, including: Why is there always a single shoe by the side of the road? The zombie apocalypse at Stansted Airport. The fake speed camera.

“Which way do you vote?” The sales manager at work asked me that question in the middle of a crowded office today. Britain’s next general election is only weeks away, I suppose he was curious. I told him it depends because I don’t have a brand loyalty. I approach voting the same way as I […]

As far as acting goes, David Beckham is a great footballer. He makes a cameo appearance in Guy Ritchie’s new film, “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”. In the film, he plays a disgruntled Cockney knight called ‘Trigger’ (I’m not making this up). He offers a few words of advice to Arthur. I don’t think Posh […]

Are the Russians getting ready to invade us? There was a Russian submarine in the English channel on the weekend. The Royal Navy ship, HMS Somerset spotted it off the east coast of the UK on Friday morning and followed it through the Strait of Dover. Last month, Somerset’s sister ship HMS Sutherland escorted two […]


Like a “zombie apocalypse”. That’s how one Twitter user described scenes at London’s Stansted airport yesterday.  Reports today say it was chaotic and some passengers even fainted. It was all because an X-ray machine broke down. It took nearly four hours to fix it. Stansted is the fourth busiest airport in the UK and is […]
