Yes, but historically it's from 'Grande Bretagne' as in 'big', 'large' - not 'wonderful' or 'fantastic'.
Bretagne (Brittany) is 'Little Britain'. Thus, Bretagne (Brittany), Grande Bretagne...

There you go - for some reason I have to be someone else on here! ;-)
Intriguingly, though, I worked for the same company (in Brazil) as another contributor to this thread.
It really is a small world!

That's one thing I've never understood about certain presenters.

He does seem overly melodramatic and needs to settle down - hopefully he will.
However, I'm more interested in what he has to say, rather than how he says it.

This (immigration) is a single issue.

True. It's difficult to avoid, isn't it, considering that most of LBC's output is politics-based.
Chin's alternative thread has not exactly been a roaring success and is difficult to find.
Ah well....

He is being ironically self-depracating and is obviously repeating and paraphrasing what he gets called on Twitter etc.
To be precise, he calls himself the above, but 'Liberal' - not 'Leftie'.

Simon Calder has created a bit of a stir with his article in The Independent regarding VAT on goods bought at airports.
I used to enjoy his travel broadcasts on LBC.

Yes! When he's good, he's really good. I reckon he can be the best at teasing out a topic, discussing, arguing and looking at issues from other points of view. Great radio.

You're right. It's got to the point where I look forward to Darren Adam - a presenter who's got more than two brain cells to rub together. At least, I certainly hope so.
