Into the corner you must go!

LONDON - OCTOBER 29:  Russell Brand stands out...Image by Getty ImagesAfter 27,000 complaints were received Russell Brand has resigned from his BBC Radio 2 show over the Andrew Sachs incident. Jonathan Ross was also suspended by the corporation for his role in the affair. He has also apologised through his solicitors Schillings, the presenter said the prank calls were a "stupid error of judgment".

The media have really got their weight behind this and although it is disrespectful it doesn't require this much attention. I have listened to the recording on YouTube and although it is disappointing that they took it to that level there is no need for it to be played out this much.

In the messages, pre-recorded and broadcast on Radio 2 late on Saturday October 18, the pair alluded to Brand having had sex with Sachs' granddaughter, Georgina Baillie. [Source]
Chelsea returned to winning ways this evening although I still haven't seen the goals. The live game tonight was the North London derby and I watched that with my children who like me were hoping that Arsenal would drop points. We love Arsenal because they didn't let us down and even leading 4-2 in the 90th minute they must have been teasing us as they conceeded two late goals to finish the game 4-4. Liverpool are still clear at the top but over the last few seasons Chelsea have become used to keeping pace with the leaders, can Liverpool withstand the pressure?
