Recently, Keith and I have decided to get rid of our BT Vision, buy a £25 viewing card to use with our Sky box and stick to FreeSat. One reason is because, every day the BT Vison box becomes strangely unresponsive for a couple of hours but the main reason is that we are not able to get Welsh news. When BBC goes to the local station, for us it is deemed to be North West, rather than Wales.( In Chester, meanwhile. since the digital switchover, their main local station became - yes, you've guessed it - Wales!)
So this morning Keith rang BT and said we would like to terminate our contract for BT Vision.
"No problem," said the girl on the other end of the phone, "We can do that for you from October 25th."
According to my diary, 25th is next Tuesday but, with unerring efficiency, Keith had barely put the phone down when, hey presto! all our recorded programmes had disappeared and we no longer had access to 'on demand' or 'replay'. 
Let's hope they are equally efficient in adjusting our bill!

The reason you can't get Welsh news is because they don't have any in Wale isn't it? Apart from this morning, of course, but least said soonest mended.

(Couldn't resist it!)

Hmmm. Sounds like you have been taking lessons from Yorkshire Pudding... ;)

What exactly is Welsh news? Another hen party pissed up in Cardiff? More arrests of habitual sheep abusers? Next year's Eisteddfod will include singing, harps and poetry readings?...See, I've been taking lessons from arch-cynic Mr Parrots.

Cau dy geg, YP. See, my welsh lessons are not in vain. ;)

Malu cachu!

Jennyta said...

Likewise, I'm sure, YP. I ran that through Google translator and it came out as 'smashing shit'
