A write old load of tosh

It's a cold rainy November Monday. It's been a tough day at work. You finally get home and switch on good old Radio 4, expecting a bit of 6.30 comedy. And whaddya get? "And now The Write Stuff, the game of literary correctness". Oh God. Yawnworthy quiz questions and self-congratulatory parodies. Save me. Perhaps only Brain of Britain is more smug, and only the announcement of an imminent "Moneybox Live With Paul Lewis" more generally depressing. It's almost enough to make you turn the dial to seek out overpaid celebraties shouting obscenities down the phone at old people instead.

My darling Mama and I actually quite enjoy the literary cut-and-thrust of the Write Stuff (almost as much as Quote Unquote with that wickedly funny Nigel Rees.)

Am i the only one pining for the return of Robert Robinson (assuming he is still alive??) and his questions for youngest child and mothers... And well answered Higginbottom Minor...
