Fair play to him, after all, every major public emergency needs a twat with a dictaphone.

Nah, he's running down to Starbucks for the free WiFi. Bung in free refills and he's set for an afternoon of cat videos on YouTube.


He's probably sulking cos the Chronicle had their best man Friday on the Oracle Live updates yesterday*

*LOL @ Friday whining yesterday about the police being "uncooperative" with him.


All over Twitter and Facebook there were posts galore about what an excellent job the TVP were doing yesterday, communicating well and protecting the community.

You then get this weasel whining and moaning about the complete opposite what the public think. Maybe he might realise there is a reason why no-one wants to communicate with him or his perception is lower than a sewer drain, then maybe not.

I heard a rumour that when he got the job as Reading FC reporter he was forced to change his name by deed poll to Friday as it was thought Reading fans might like it due to the association with Robin Friday. Don't know if that's true though.

I think the marketing people at the club will be asking the Football League shortly to change our name to London Irish.
Justification will be that we have more Irish players than the rugby team and that nowadays Reading is almost a London suburb..
The shame is that unlike in the days of Long and Doyle and then the Hunts we will now be made up of old Irish players rather than previously when they were up and coming.

I knew this would happen when they put Reading on the tube map. It's all part of the creeping urbanisation which should be resisted at every opportunity. I couldn't help noticing recently that there is basically a field between Pangbourne and Purley, Purley now counting as greater Reading I think. If that field goes, god help us all.

its just inevitable really, Reading will become more and more an outer suburb of London. It easier to get to central London from most of Reading than it is half of Greater London.

The club isnt going to get renamed London Irish though.

Italy has a boot. So you’d assume therefore a leg.
