Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately, including: Fat shaming. The lady filmed shaving her legs in a public swimming pool. Diversity in the NHS. Boris Johnson gets pranked. Israel wins Eurovision. Disgruntled tourists knock Britain. No more cheap booze in Scotland. Should wolf whistling be banned? Unleaded food and drink. The Ikea […]
