The world seems to be holding its breath, the news has crawled to a trickle and the country is in sleep mode.

The BBC’s top story is the disappearance of the Air France plane “somewhere” in the Atlantic

The best the Telegraph can come up with is that Tetris is 25 years old, and the expenses scandal of course.

The Times Online seems to have moved the MP thing to Euro MPs, here we go again.

The Daily Wail, sorry Mail is concentrating on SuBo and BGT, telling us that Ofcom are investigating the treatment of the said SuBo.

The Independent has decided we need a general election, about a week too late.

The Mirror tells us that Peter Andre is depressed: who cares.

And the Sun is hedging its bets by having a “revolving” headline covering all the above, plus Britain’s most wanted which strangely enough doesn’t have one single photo of a politician.

What has happened to Journalism? Where are the interesting articles? Are there any reporters out there in the country hunting for news, or are they all sitting behind their desks waiting for it to fall out of the sky and onto their desks, preferably on CD of course?

So that really is what is going on-not a lot!

People have this illusion that all over the world, all of the time, all kinds of fantastic things are happening. When in fact, over most of the world nothing is happening.” –David Brinkley
