I usually have this on when I am in the kitchen
and I know that the people who phone in will invariably wind me up at some point.
However over the past few days I have found myself shouting FFS and it has been when Jeremy Vine has been interviewing someone - he has been awful.
I know some people may think that I have arrived at his this conclusion a bit late !!
Does anyone else think tho that he is getting worse ?

Oh no. I am very fond of Jellybean.

What don't you like about him? I like that he doesn't take sides even if there is a rabid caller.

I had to give up him about a year ago.

His callers tend to be a bunch of bigots and he seems to encourage them. The BBC may as well go the hole hog and employ Jeremy Kyle instead.

I haven't heard him for a couple of weeks as I have a workman in at the moment listening to Radio 1 (boak).

But I love Jeremy and can't wait to get back to him next week. What sort of thing has upset you?

Can't stand him!

He seems to think he's running some hugely significant debate when it's just a bunch of random bigots with too much time on their hands.

PMSL at Jeremy Kyle doin the show !

Clara did you hear him yesterday interviewing the woman who works in a prison ?
I just think that he made a pigs ear of it.
I was cringing yesterday.
The same today when discussing racism in American politics .
I am just a bit shock that he can get away with such crap poor interviewing techniques.
My toes have literally been curled up with embarassment for him
I would do it soooo much better grin

I did hear him yesterday but didn't notice anything untoward. Maybe I lack critical reasoning.

I do like how the same stories are repeated every six months, such as should drivers use headlights all day, and why you shouldn't lend money to your family. There's something quite comforting about this.
