Mosquitoes in the UK are annoying but small. Not like the US mosquitoes that are big enough to legally own property.

Ya, haha, hilarious.
How about a dose of West Nile!
Haha. Hilarious.

Mosquitoes = poor peoples' problem, right wealthy presenters?

This would never happen on Spanish-language Moscow television.

I dislike the BBC now.

I recently posted a rant on FB, excerpted below:

I am sorry BBC but I must speak the truth. I have listened to your radio programs (or shall I say programmes?) for over a decade and the sad truth is that you have become tripe. Your news quality and presentation style rank you somewhere below CNN but above Fox News. What once was heralded as the pinnacle of Western journalism is now less than pedestrian.

At least 10 minutes of every hour is dedicated to...sport, mostly football (soccer), even on their WORLD SERVICE program (meant for broad consumption). Umm...who cares?

Further, most of their coverage seems like they are pandering to the common folk of both Britain and America. The coverage is way too U.S. centered, having lost its global touch and feel in the last decade.

The last bright light of their news coverage, the Analysis portion (last 10 minutes) of the World Service program, has also become hopelessly diluted with drivel. It used to be hard hitting journalism, holding back no punches. Now, we have royal baby coverage, "analysis" of food desires, reports on "research" on inane topics, or at the BEST we get Fox News style coverage of important political issues in some region of the world (meaning no analysis, fairly one-sided, and no background information; essentially, a headline).

Yeah, it's joined the ranks of broadcasters with agendas they like to push. However I think the sport complaint is unfair. People need to know about the sports. If it's global of course it'd have football, you can't say it's tailoring it's stuff for a US audience, then have a pop that it isn't tailoring it's sport reports to US audiences.

But ultimately the BBC has had a sharp decline the past 15 years.

Is it unfair of me to point out that the female presenter looks awfully rough for a 44 year-old?

100's of mosquitos on BBC?

That'd nearly cover the tip!

Those weren't mosquitoes.  These (above) are Mosquitos.
