To think the BBC coverage of the flotilla is total crap

They really are making a pigs ear of it.

I want to see the boats (try and spot DPs dads boat)
not listen to all the crap from this presenter and that presenter and bloody poems,

I was a bit envy at not being able to watch. DS2 and DH are having a Harry Potter DVD marathon. Sounds like I'm not missing much then? I can imagine the amount of filling and waffling the presenters are doing though.

Someone here has just said the very same!

YANBU - DS has some friends on a boat - we want to see them, not Tess dancing / Anneka babbling etc etc

Is Sky doing a better job I wonder? And why is Tess dancing?

RabidAnchovy Sun 03-Jun-12 15:25:58

And where did they find the two in door presenters my 11 year old could do better

We've just been commenting how shite it is.

Who are the indoor presenters?

Kate didn't plan her outfit well - she's blending in with the boat confused

CrispyCod Sun 03-Jun-12 15:27:01

Perhaps if we tweet them someone might pick it up and do something with it! Anyone got a twitter account?!

RabidAnchovy Sun 03-Jun-12 15:27:03

I have no idea SB

CrispyCod Sun 03-Jun-12 15:28:23

Oh I think Kate looks stunning. That shade is beautiful.

sensuallettuce Sun 03-Jun-12 15:29:17

Yes she looks great - but so does the boat smile

they are that bloke from country file/dancin/blue peter and sophie rayworth.

why do they have to give him (matt something) every bloomin job going?

RabidAnchovy Sun 03-Jun-12 15:29:51

We have someone ringing the bells on the bell barge too, I don't want to see John Barrowman or Anika Rice and some bloody painters

Just having a quick look. Anneka Rice? confused

Yes I agree it's awful. And John Barrowman in the boat with the bells? was there nobody else available at all? I can't stand him.

How annoying. Just show the bloody boats.

What is the 'big moment' they are referring to?

RabidAnchovy Sun 03-Jun-12 15:31:31

SHOW THE BLOODY BOATS ITS ALL ABOUT THE BOATS angry

Dawndonna Sun 03-Jun-12 15:31:32

sparkling the indoor ones are Sophie raworth, and him off countryfile.

DD2 is watching a film I will probably catch it later I do hate when these commentators dont just let us watch something we dont need chat imo ,

ToryLovell Sun 03-Jun-12 15:31:56

FFS those crappy painters

#bbcjubilee was mentioned earlier - don't know how this twitter thing works

I enjoyed the shot of Ben Fogle in his boat when he erected his oar.
