Tonight’s University Challenge & Poppy-watch

Well the Gipsy Hill Polytechnic of further imbibement scored a 140 in tonight’s show, beating the losers Sheffield by some considerable margin.

In other BBC news, I’m on high Poppy-watch alert, eyes scanning the lapels of every presenter to see who will fowl up and be caught in sans fleur. I don’t think it happened last year, mind you, remember the fuss when Peter Sissions didn’t have a black tie on when the Queen mum died… Honouring the war dead is very important, but if a presenter accidentally forgets to wear a poppy it shouldn’t be seen as disrespectful.

Incidentally all the poppies sold through-out the UK are made in a small factory in Richmond, see the bottom of this page.

    I wonder what would happen if a presenter dared to wear a white poppy – http://www.whitepoppy.org.uk ??
