More evidence of unbelievable stupidity of BBC East


Regular readers of this blog will know that I am not greatly enamoured with the local BBC we have in this area.

BBC East have further highlighted their inability to do their research with a feature they are having this week about having a "Staycation", which according to the local BBC is all about "Holidaying in the UK" and in particular "in the East".

Except, of course, this isn't what a "staycation" is. In simple terms it's about staying out home and visiting places locally. It is not about taking boating holidays on the Norfolk Broads instead of going to Italy (as they featured last night) or spending a few nights in a B&B on the East coast rather than going to Spain.

You don't have to take my word for it though. It's very easy to do a search on the internet which will tell you that the BBC East definition of a staycation is totally wrong.

Solution - don't have a TV.

UKIP should have filed that injunction against the Beeb. They are incompetent.

What about the amazing cost you could save by staying and visiting the broads? About £140 for a week if my memory serves me correctly, with no guarantee of good weather.
