Tut, Tut, Tut...

This morning's BBC radio news headline was that our home secretary tried smoking pot when she was a student. By teatime, the state of the nation had plummeted yet further as we learnt that several of our cabinet ministers tried it when they were teenagers.

Headline news. Really. I tried it too when I was younger, haven't touched it for many years and it's about as relevant.

They should have questioned our ministers further - who knows what horrors may have been uncovered. Drinking alcohol before they were 18? Smoking cigarettes before they were 16? Sexual activity before the age of consent? Driving over the speed limit?

Surely there are more relevant activities going on throughout the world that we ought to be aware of. It seems to me that when there's nothing left to be said, someone in BBC news is preparing to say it.

And don't get me started on those bleeding Beckhams...

I would happily forget them that easily - if only we were allowed to...

Someone recently said that Big J has the "Beckham" look. Pity he doesn't have their bank balance! Personally, I think Big J is much better looking and probably more intelligent!

No question, assuming we're talking about the combined Beckhams
