Well there's a surprise

So this morning the scout association announces Bear Grylls as new chief scout, something which I think is a fantastic coup. So what does the Mail have to say about it?

"the woggle of Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the youth movement, must be spinning in his grave "

Lets see, what else we get from the article over all. Bad pun about woggle? Check. Implication that things aren't what they used to be? Check. Attack on Channel 4? Check. Complete ignoring of the presence of girls in scouting? Check.

In short, text book Mail.

Finally - posting is intermittent at the mo, sorry, I have a lot on!
