I know Eddie and the PM Team are always glad to hear how they can improve their service to us, the listening public.PS And I don't have an accent. I'm from NZ. I'm normal there. Everyone else here does though. And they all pronounce words wrongly. I'm just waiting for the BBC to catch up.

I sometimes use ''thee'' instead of 'the' to emphasise something - as in ''This is THEE wettest morning you could imagine'' As long as the meaning of the words stays clear I don't mind how they are pronounced, and am a great advocate of hearing regional accents.I'd type in my accent, but the mods would probably tell me it's not English ;o) Sat 21 Jun 2008 09:07:39 GMT+1 Chris Ghoti http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/06/martha_stewart.shtml?page=68#comment31 armadio, at least eighty years ago A.A.Milne wrote: 'Winnie-/ther/-Pooh. Don't you know what "ther" means?' on about page two of his children's classic, so this pronunciation has been around for quite a long time.

Sat 21 Jun 2008 05:40:21 GMT+1 armadio http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/06/martha_stewart.shtml?page=64#comment29 pm is the best. I know I'm very fussy about pronunciation, but on pm, you pronounce "the" to rhyme with "sir" not "see", and also "a" to rhyme with "sir" not "say". I know language changes, but I am actually surprised that the pronunciation of the BBC doesn't try to check this. I feel the BBC is leading the change, not reflecting it. What do others think, please?

But the BBC seems to have missed the elephant in the room. This is what I mean, with the increases in the price of oil, possibly going to 200 dollars a barrel, the gas going up in relation to this, and the knock-on effect in the supermarket for food, if you add in the increase of peoples mortgages, this winter, we will only be able to pay some of these bills not all, we could be looking at not hundreds but thousands of people unable to get to work because they have paid the mortgage but couldn't fill the car/bus, go to work and not feed the family, or feed the family but not pay the mortgage. When you look up at the chimney pots of people’s houses this winter for the first time in years you will see smoke, the reason is people are ripping out their gas fires to go back to coal or anything that will burn, when you are sitting in your centrally heated studio in London this winter please remember the vast majority of people struggling under a mountain of debt that is not of their making trying to survive and I mean survive, please will you look at the death rates, let’s hope it's not a cold winter.Neil Holden Fri 20 Jun 2008 19:56:47 GMT+1 DI_Wyman http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/06/martha_stewart.shtml?page=57#comment26 blimey, that was a close call, so glad the home office is on the ball. i hate to think what could have happened if the poor woman had managed to get into the uk.

Fri 20 Jun 2008 17:06:58 GMT+1 reformedoffender http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/06/martha_stewart.shtml?page=37#comment17 Actually, this is not about Andrew Neil and its not boring!Its actually one of the rare occasions when the discrimination of people who have left behind previous criminal convictions in their past and now lead law abiding lives manages to get into the media.The same issues applies for British people going to the USA. Even people who have been arrested but not convicted find it hard to get in.Remember the guy who over filled his litter bin and then went to court over the fine? He lost. He has a criminal record. He wouldn't be allowed to travel to the States. His home insurance also becomes invalid and most employers wouldn't take him on anymore. The trouble with our country is we can't forgive people. Do the crime, do the time, fine. But then drop it. Its also not boring to note that the same people who think that its ridiculous to discriminate against a woman who committed the 'rich person's crime' of insider dealing, are the ones who would happily castigate the working class criminal who got involved drugs in his youth.

Mankind for the last 500 years has been digging up these carbon reserves, and burning them at a rate many, many times greater than nature took to bury them, and hey presto, we are all surprised that we have global warning. But we decide that we can burn fossil fuels, burn them, and then bury the carbonWhy do humans believe they can beat nature at its own game, King Canute tried and failed. Are we any better? So lets forget beating mother nature, and start using the free: wind, tide, thermal, and light energies.Those who feel they can beat nature, had better beat tracks to the Looney bin.Derrick HudgellWalton-on-the-Naze Fri 20 Jun 2008 16:38:07 GMT+1 needsanewnickname http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/06/martha_stewart.shtml?page=22#comment10 Must we give Mr Neil the oxygen of publicity on the BBC?I mean, even more?
