Who IS the antipodean clown presenting business 'news' on BBC 'News' 24? His method of delivery, shouting and gurning and hopping from foot to foot and rocking back and forward is clearly meant to demonstrate confidence in his abilities and convey a sense of urgency (heaven forfend that the BBC might run the risk of boring the non-specialist viewer for a nano-second).
But it is achieving exactly the opposite. I can scarcely hear, let alone understand, a word of what he says (and I have been around the international financial world my entire adult professional life) and has prompted me to switch off. Jeff Randall remains the only business presenter on any English language broadcasting channel proven to be worth his salt.
