    Dear BBC News website.....

    ...we pay a licence fee for something a bit more substantial than:
    BBC News - Prince William and Kate Middleton toss pancakes in Belfast

    What's up next, Bear defecates in wooded area?

    Not exactly Delia's 'lacy' pancakes are they. I'm surprised the handles didn't break off the pans.

    Maybe not what you want to watch on BBC, also not what I want to watch, but you have to think that there's more than me and you that pay TV licencing. Maybe somebody is say lonely in their home today with no one to talk to, and for the first time today something 'decent' (in their eyes) has actually come on the box.

    Try Russia Today. It's all "How much can we slag the US off in one morning?"

    There you go, got me started on my pet hate, the BBC Breakfast Programme; it's the main 2 female presenters that get my goat, one seems to spend most her time smiling to the camera, inappropriately giggling and the other does that as well but also persistently cuts across the male presenters when they are talking.

    And why is it that the weather girl seems to think it's to the two presenters that she is giving the forecast

    Yes I know I don't have to watch it and often I don't but apart from that irritation and the fact FOOTBALL seems to be an item of news that can sometimes be yapped about for 10 minutes the rest of the content is pretty good

    Yes, BBC Breakfast - it drives me nuts it is so inane. BBC B********* more like.

    I once described sian williams as dead from the neck up on Twitter and now she's following me!?!?
