Just at the present time the BBC seems to have a penchant for employing extremely weird, affected/afflicted, incredibly ugly news correspondents. Current example of this are Evan (look slightly to the left of the camera) Davis, presenting his economics reports in a camper manner than would Kenneth Williams, in a suit with drainpipe legs and size 24 feet. The very irritating business correspondent Robert Peston who thinks we are all equally as excited by news of Northern Rocks woes. Peston clearly models himself on Evan Davis. The affected accent of Frank Gardiner presenting the latest on Al Qaeda in his ever so posh accent grates too. My current least favourite is Mihir Bose. He wthinks he knows it all, and was always fawned over by Michael Parkinson on his radio show because he was the Telegrpah's Sport correspondent. I cannot stand his posh accent, and his latest ramblings about the Premier League going global are excrutiatingly annoying. Add to this the various ugly women, with no discernible accent, accept it must come from the mid-Atlantic that report, generally from the middle-east or Africa.
