The newsreaders gender-war is hotting up. First came Michael Buerk's assertion that men would soon be redundant. Then Anna Ford (rhyming slang for "bored") said that he was "bonkers". Now more newsreaders have joined the fray:
Huw Edwards said that girls are silly and they smell. He then punched Natasha Kaplinksy on the arm and ran off with her satchel.
Angela Rippon riposted with the accusation that boys were stupid. She added that you shouldn't kiss one in case you catch fleas.
Sir Trevor McDonald has been thrown out of the boy-newsreaders gang after he was caught snogging Sue Lawley behind the bike-sheds.
