The problem is that nobody would have voted for it and hardly anyone would be happy with the result.

It would be like having a choice between Indian or Italian for dinner and being presented with a...

How could a Conservative-UKIP coalition (with 50% of the UK vote) have more of a "legitimate mandate" than the current government when there wasn't a "UKIP-Tory" manifesto to vote on? There are no...

How would you feel about having a Conservative-UKIP coalition now? They got 49.5% of the vote between them across the UK (and 55.1% in England)

The Scottish system isn't perfect (I dislike any form of party list system) but it is better than most other forms of PR. At least it maintains the constituency link.

I'm just not clear what happens...

Just on now: Budget analysis from a 5 year old.

That's the final straw. I'm off to Radio 4 for good now.

Veggie Thai curry.

It was supposed to be a chicken one but I forgot to defrost the meat so I just put in some extra veg instead.

Sadly she has the same affect on me. I gave her a chance but just couldn't get used to her voice. I now rarely listen to R5L in the afternoon

However, I don't have a problem with Rachel's voice.

An even more startling statistic is that since 1966 England have only beaten one major footballing country in a knockout game in a tournament (Euros or WC). And that was Spain in 1996 on penalties....

I can't believe they are spending an hour this morning talking about a Christmas advert for a supermarket.

I've been dipping in and out but I don't really seem the point in it. Just seems to be a longer version of Bacon's Chart The Week segment.

I don't even understand why the practice sessions are covered at all. You don't get live commentary of Man Utd training sessions or golfers at the driving range.

I'm not a huge F1 fan although I don't mind watching it on TV but I really don't see how it works on the radio. It's just noise.

I just think there are some subjects which aren't suitable for mid-morning radio. Listening to someone talk about deeply personal and traumatic events isn't interesting or informative.

The new schedule can't start soon enough. The first item on this Morning Misery today is an interview with a woman who had her own father's child.

Even Colin Murray on TalkSport is better.
