this man so annoys me, his latest rant is asking why there are no blacks mentioned in Prince Philips funeral, does the man not realise that there are only 30 invited, most being family, sick to death now of racist rubbish, time to put Jeremy out to pasture

I only know his name really, I did listen to him on the radio once and thought he was so drippy that I haven’t bothered since, so I know nothing about him.

At the risk of derailing this thread again in a different direction, I’ve always regarded JV (only ever heard the radio show) as the equivalent of the tabloids personified! Anything for publicity and a public reaction to make his show sound edgy and controversial.

I always got the impression when I couldn’t get to the off button quickly enough, that as people were getting more and more irate and upset, he would be rubbing his hands together thinking ‘Ooh this is really great for my show!!’

Unfortunately I don’t think he’s interested enough in the people he interviews for it ever to be called good programming.

There was somebody on the radio show yesterday who was completely passionate about the football story. I think it was Gary Neville. He was incandescent! JV obviously couldn't think of a single question to put to him so he literally ignored the comments and went to the next guest. He has talent whatsoever, except the promotion of JV.

One of the very few people I instantly switch off (radio or TV) if I accidentally find him
