Pussycat, Pussycat, I love You !

After arriving back from the Rugby (Wales v Japan) last night I sat through the ITV news. Amongst the "news" was a very brief story on the sad deaths of two British Servicemen in Afghanistan, no more than a minute or two at the most. This was followed by a story about the shocking revelation that BBC bosses may well have chosen the name for Blue Peter's cat rather than go with the results of a phone in. The story ran for what seemed like hours, yet I suspect it was no more than five minutes, and had analysis of the scandal in a quality not yet applied to either the Iraq or Afghan crisis.

I'm more than aware that some of this could be classed as one-upmanship by ITV over the BBC but what right minded journalist doesn't see the problems inherent within the system if the naming of a fucking moggie warrants more mainstream news time than the deaths of British Soldiers abroad.

I was going to end this post with a witty one liner based upon the term Pussy-footing around, but I just could not bring myself to do it. What a pussy I am. Shit.
