The woman who reads the London Underground “next stop” announcements has apparently been sacked for keeping a blog in which she would record funny fake announcments, like “Residents of London are reminded that there are other places in Britain outside your stinking shithole of a city, and if you removed your heads from your arses for just a couple of minutes, you may realise that the M25 is not the edge of the Earth”

Britian’s biggest blog

The National Trust is encouraging people to record a diary of their day on a website, as part of what is being called “Britain’s biggest blog”.

The blogs will then be stored by the British Library and at other locations.

The trust says it will create a “fascinating social history archive” of everyday life for future generations.
