You're absolutely right, Connor.

Nigel Farage loves saying the country is full but the reality is that only 2% of the UK has been built on (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-18623096).

Lucy Meacock still reads the news on ITV, Reeta Chakrabarti on the BBC and Anna Botting and Paula Middlehurst on Sky are all a similar age to Huw Edwards. I'm sure if I set my mind to it, I could...
