Harris Tweed Industry to shrink further

It's probably asking a bit much to expect Ben Fogle to do any kind of investigative journalism. The poor lad just does as he's told and reads out the dumbed down soundbyte tripe on the autocue.

No need to despair AL: life is too short, and it is neither your business nor your destiny to despair. You do what you feel you must do, let the chips fall where they may, and get on with the job and enjoyment of life. And Jimmy, watch your blood pressure. How about hiking and fishing, before they stick those horrible whirring thingies up? Or a good relaxing meal with some Pellegrino or a bottle of wine? Where do you find such a meal in the W.I.?

Isn't Harris Tweed meant to shrink? I think there's a connection between compost heaps and tweed, of a urinely variety.

My son and I bought some there last summer while visiting and I'm currently covering the grill for his bass amplifier with the meter he bought. Perhaps some rocker there on the island should rally any highlanders within the ranks at Marshall, or Mesa Boogie, or Fender to repeat said grill-cover a thousand times plus? Sign another huge contract to keep the islanders' investments intact!

Countryfile and it's BBC partner Landward are worth watching for the issues that should be in the main news but are not. Unfortunately both programmes are pretty useless if you want information - they are very light on facts and shallow in depth. Pretty much somes up today's media.
