I do not have flu. That is good.
BUT, I am soooo fed up of blooming swine flu consuming the news. Remember bird flu? That did my head in, as did the foot and mouth epidemic.
I know that swine flu is incredibly serious and can have unfortunate consequences such as death or missing a football match you wanted to watch and I know that it is important we’re all aware of what is going on BUT please don’t keep it in the top two or three news stories for weeks and weeks and weeks. Let’s just have a 30 second flu report at the end of the weather with a map of Britain and different colours representing the percentage of the population in a certain area who are bedridden and little numbers showing how many people have died. I would be much more likely to take in the appropriate information if it were presented like that.
