    Possibly. And my answers to questions might have indicated that I thought the entire industry was completely frivolous and unnecessary

    A friend of mine is a delivery driver for a well known supermarket. He knows exactly what type of person he is going to from the shopping they've ordered.
    EG. A load of trays full of unhealthy fizzy drinks and a ton of frozen food = 2nd floor, small flat, overweight people.

    Rather begs the question of why you applied fir the job…

    I didn't apply as such, I was contacted by their internal recruitment team.

    I didn't know too much about it until I did my research for the interview.

    Presumably on the basis of your contributions to WFC Forums?

    The BBC, over the last couple of years, trying to click bait me into reading about/ watching woman's sport. Why can’t I turn it off? Or, why try and hide the articles purpose, by not using clear images?

    I hardly have enough time to watch the best professionals in football, rugby, cricket etc. that’s on tv.

    I certainly don’t have enough time to watch part time lorry drivers and IT managers play the games in a significantly worse way than the best teams. In the same way I don’t watch the Ryman leagues or whatever it’s called now.

    And whilst it is impressive to be good at any sport, I have no interest in being tricked by the BBC for a political aim.

  10. Yes highly irritating but due to the BBC killing 2 birds with one stone. Being able to purchase and show key live sport events that other broadcasters don’t want and so don’t outbid them, whilst claiming that their objective is promoting equality.
    Highlights of ladies internationals in front of empty stadiums are shown before men’s prem games or champs league games.
    Articles on the website are deliberately mixed so as to shown as having equal importance with ambiguous headings like “Chelsea sign Greek international” which then turns out to be the ladies team if you don’t notice the faded “ladies football” header.
    Mrs TuT approves but couldn’t name a female footballer and certainly wouldn’t watch a game whereas she regularly watches the mens game.

    I think it could be a DCMS led agenda, as Skysports do it too. It allows them to say ‘look how many more people are now clicking on woman's sport articles because of us’ when I imagine the vast vast majority instantly click off and swear to be more careful next time.

    Precisely this.
    It isnt the way to go.
    Being misleading rarely is, sadly its the current state of things

    I too, always felt the BBC overeacted when 'Birds of Feather' switched to ITV.

    Suggestive of highly debilitating man-flu variant. Fortunately, it will respond to rest, lots of it.

    Same here. Everyone at work has it and so does my wife so the sympathy levels aren’t where they need to be.

    And a large glass of single malt half an hour before bed. Brings you down when you’re off your nut on Lemsip Max.
