Mediaballs: Pearls before swine

Phrases you never thought you would hear...

"That's quite technical from Nigel Harris" James Naughtie on the Today Programme, err, today!

Lord Reith must be spinning in his grave if a Today presenter found Nigel's explanation 'quite technical'.

Where was the world's greatest living transport commentator when we needed him?

And would James Naughtie's head have exploded if Radio 4 had coaxed Captain Deltic out of bed before 07.00?

Come back Raymond Baxter, we say.

UPDATE: This from Sir William Pollitt...

I suppose the word 'wheelbarrow' would sound technical to the presenter who uttered the C word on Today only last week.
