    That More4 press release is horrible, are they always written in non-english? I suppose they all are.
    They should hire me to write them:

    More4 is pleased to announce that, following the success of axing ‘The Daily Show’, we have found new ways of eliminating interesting, educational and factual content from our channel.
    No longer will your little brains be bothered by thoughts, or be forced to make informed conclusions based upon facts.
    Look! Here’s a rich couple, who want to be on telly, looking at three houses they have no intention of buying.
    And now! A hairy man cooking Vegetables he’s grown in his garden, when you live in a flat.
    Be amazed! As an effeminate man tells a woman she looks fat in that dress.
    And Wow! That mirror really does make that room look bigger.

    I even have some new tag lines for the channel: ‘More4 leave your brains at the door’ and, ‘More4 these aren’t repeats, they’re reimaginings’

    It’s written in “commissioner speak”, which is a cousin of “business jargon”. The higher up they are, the worse it gets. At least these days no one bollocks on about “360º programming” et al, but it just means there’s new language to parse.
