Whose Election?

I am in utter disbelief by the amount of coverage that we are getting over the US Election. I am interested in fact very interested to know the election results etc but surely we don’t need a minute to minute update??!!

On Tuesday, when I tuned in to Radio 4 for one last news update before retiring to bed, it was announced that Today in Parliament was being brought forward to 9.30pm to facilitate the all night US election coverage due to start at 10pm!

Yesterday, Women’s hour decided that they too will discuss the US election! The World at one started off with the election coverage and it went on and on. UK news including what the Prime Minister said when he addressed the House of Commons only got a few minutes of air time!!!

Maybe its the “special relationship” that has triggered this election hysteria.
