That way, there'd only need to be one post on the subject, as it would remain anchored to the top of the blog until the PM team decided to remove the flag, so relegating it back to its chronological place in the post listings...

The less provocative stuff we write here, the less moderation is needed (in theory), thereby saving money, or, as they say in business, driving out cost.

Instead send the £10 straight to Children in Need".

I keep dropping by here, but it does feel a bit like flogging a dead horse. If you'll pardon the analogy...;-) Thu 18 Nov 2010 11:35:28 GMT+1 Rob Grover http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/11/a_message_for_you.shtml?page=68#comment13 The West Wing is one of the greatest TV dramas to come out of America for many years and the music and opening credits are excellent.How did you get Mr. W.G. Snuffy Walden (crazy name, crazy guy?) onto yuor wonddderful little programme. The Lord Mair's influence clearly reaches far and wide - but we knew that already Thu 18 Nov 2010 10:28:13 GMT+1 The Intermittent Horse http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/11/a_message_for_you.shtml?page=63#comment12 jonnie (12) - I think the blog has been suffering for some time. It has now been practically abandoned as a vehicle for discussing any topic covered by PM. A rough count of the threads put up over the last week reveals:Beach - 1 threadStourhead - 1 threadiPM Honours List - 2 threadsPromoting the CD - 13 threadsI think they should reintroduce the strapline. I'd suggest: "Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here."

A break for Eddie I guess but rather a sad 2010 look from previous years with the multiple postings on the same theme.The silly season used to get comments in the hundreds - hopefully come Friday things may look better.

Insert CD into CD player, shiny side down, close tray, then press play. Be aware that there are some LOUD tracks on it.When? Probably not when holding a posh dinner party. But it should work well with a glass of something alcoholic, or even just as background music. Of course, you could get serious about it, invite the neighbours round, issue them with score sheets and rate every track. And no, I did not spend the rest of the night with the tune going round my head.

Not that I'm one to complain ;-)And shouldn't you stop throwing stones at the poor little birdies?PS The biology teacher liked the owl pellets, apparently. Your influence extends over almost the whole nation Mr Nutt...

Very funny! I've received my CD. I haven't listened to it yet because obviously I'm waiting for the perfect moment (actually, to tell the truth, I'm a bit scared). But the really weird thing is that I dreamt last night I was listening to it. I am obviously more than a little scared now. Any advice on how and when I should play the CD?

I would suggest a simpler, clearer message. Or maybe it's supposed to be funny? Must just be me, then. Wed 17 Nov 2010 10:59:12 GMT+1
