It was really about the flooding crisis on the ITN news at half six yesterday evening. We heard that matters are going from worse to worse and the usual helicopter images were shown. A man was shown cycling with a six pack of bottled water and we heard of panic buying. Old grannies were shown; waving at the camera; happy for some attention. David Cameron appeared in Oxford, striding through flood water in his green Hunter wellies. We heard that the rain was "an act of God" and were told of how day trippers who had come in to view the chaos were - "enjoying the bittersweet spectacle". We closed by being reminded we are "waiting for the Doomsday Clock to strike", in terms of further rain, one assumes.
Over to Iraq - another soldier killed.
David Cameron re-appeared; this time to insist the Tories can win the next election.
26 Pilgrims die in a coah crash, images of the aftermath were shown.
Sport was next, always a good selection on a Sunday - Golf, Formula 1 and Cricket.
That was about it really, we closed with the weather. To illustrate this, ITN showed a man and his infant child, snorkeling together in a swimming pool before more doom and gloom was forecast.
