And they'll still be going on about it when she's got granddaughters herself

Autocorrect. It's a wonderful thing. I once set it on my flatmate's computer so that every time he typed his name it would replace it with the words "useless fuckwit" and he - and everyone he corresponded with - was confused for ages.

The Daily Mail appear to have it set up on all their systems so that every time anyone types the word "BBC" it swiftly adds ", still reeling from the fallout of Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand's obscene phone messages to Andrew Sachs, 78."

No matter how totally and utterly irrelevant it might be.

Obviously, though, they switch it off when they're offering old BBC programmes as freebies to try to make people buy their newspaper.
