Top darts player Phil 'The Power' Taylor gets One Minute on The One Show to tell the nation how he can't abide bad manners and rudeness.

Whether it's taking up excessive space on trains or jumping the queue in post offices nothing infuriates Phil more than discourtesy. For the film, Phil travelled to Newcastle-under-Lyme to meet Reverend Ian Gregory founder of Campaign for Courtesy.

Their motto: Courtesy costs nothing but profits everybody.

What impolite activity annoys you? Queue jumpers? Gum chewers? Have your say below

Also: Do you back the campaign for courtesy? Or have manners 'evolved', and older people failed to keep up with changes in society?
