My wife has been watching Jamie Oliver this evening whilst I mark books, but despite my concentration being mostly on my books, I cannot help myself from shouting out expletives at Jamie Oliver every so often.
His annoying obsession with referring to "herbs" as "herbage" makes me wonder if he also has "shittage" when he goes to the toilet and "sleepage" when he goes to bed each night, no doubt pre-empted by "shaggage". Whilst his obsession with saying "look at that little baby" or "turn that baby over" makes me what to shout "it's a lamb chop for Christ's sake, not a bloody baby". I guess I should be grateful he has not used the term "pukka" all evening.
Perhaps my dislike for him is not simply about him. I get annoyed by him speaking about Stansted expansion plans. Right or wrong, and he well may have a valid point about some of the issues, but people who live near airports have to expect aircraft noise and people who choose to move near Stansted should have known about plans for expansion, after all, it has been talked about for about 20 years.
To be honest, if I were transport minister I'd get the new airport runway built just to teach him a lesson. Oh, and that would be "runway-age" Jamie.
