Hello,

Saw this on the beeb's news site this morning.

It's about a chap who went for an interview for an IT post but got mistaken for a technology correspondent and was put live on air in an interview on the BBC's 24hrs news channel—News 24.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/4774429.stm

You can watch the news item too, you will need Windows Media Player (or Flip4Mac QT Codec) or RealOne Player.

The poor chap in this instance was asked about the Apple vs. Apple court case judgement that came this time last week.

What a poor soul and blimey talk about the ultimate job interview, seeing how you cope live on air to millions of people! :flower: I'd of been right in there if they mistook me for the technology correspondant. *chuckles*

So, did he get the job? After that they own him something.

No wonder nobody reads the gaurdian. I did read it different in The Sun but being a Liverpool fan The Sun should not be read by me.

Just making conscious notes here not to do a Boris Johnson :flower:

Indeed not he's not a cabbie at all. I reckon if someone steps though the frames you could probably accurately pinpoint the moment the poor chap fills his pants.

Pretty funny story :p

p.s. Guardian > Sun (Rubbish)

Although, The Independent > ALL.
