Alistair Burnet and two pizzas

The reference was there, well, I sort of remember him and I did recognise him when I saw the photo; Alistair Burnet has died and my memory was sort of jolted and, yes, this was the guy who used to suck up to the Windsors. Well, no real harm in that, I suppose, but when you hear another lackey journalist trying to identify characteristics that made him a “great newsreader”, you tend to think …… “great newsreader! Is that not a bit like being a great garbage removal man or a great joiner?” Yes, a good joiner, maybe, but ……… and, yes, Alistair could read the news out loud.

Well, in Blighty they work hard on creating their little myths and that really does stop the Joe Soaps from seeing what is going on in front of their faces and there was me this evening buying two pizzas at ‘Pizza Express’ to take-away, in uninsulated boxes, for the princely sum of 17 pounds and there was me asking what if they get cold and being told, “you can put them in the microwave.” Seventeen pounds worth of pizza from a microwave!

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
