Praise for t'Beeb

I love the World Service, but usually hate the Business Daily* programme, where all too often the main item is a bloke flogging his 'How to be a multi-millionaire' self-help book based on faecal patterns of great business leaders and suchlike. But today's had a piece on union density in call centres and an item on the decline in value of Tiger Woods' brand in which the journo finished with a quote from the Communist Manifesto.

I suspect this will be the highlight of my day.

All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real conditions of life, and his relations with his kind
seems quite apposite actually, especially if prefaced with a sentence incluing the phrases 'extra-marital affairs' and 'dropped from Accenture quicker than Billy Whizz on crack.' Which would have been perfect.
