It is the time of the year for me to go into Mr. Grumpy mode again. You will guess why.
The media is in a tizzy over what the usual Christmas commercials will be like, in that vast amounts of money have been thrown at them and the press needs the knock on advertising spend to survive.
Mercifully these days it is possible to "box" a programme and skip the advert's by having the remote in your lap and hitting the buttons.
This one minute TV advert' from the USA, around 1960, says it all.
It really is all balls.
