Jeremy Kyle

Just watching an RAF Transport pilot on ITV's The Chase, who says he loves the Jeremy Kyle show. The standard of officers must be slipping these days.

Bit of a stretch calling himself a transport pilot with only EFT in his log book too.

He could be an MQ-9 operator? Hence the white lie.

More to the point, why would a serving military officer openly tell half of the country what they do, with their face to match? The murder of Lee Rigby springs to mind.

Standards have indeed slipped - I've heard that some officers have been known to watch something called 'Eastenders' on TV...

Nothing new there, Wittering used to virtually close down for Magic Roundabout.

But don't forget, Magic Roundabout was good management training. And the original Star Trek was almost mandatory on a command course.

At Kinloss in the early 80's, we'd often stop to watch play school, and guess which window they were going through that day.

Captain Pugwash was OK. It was "Roger the Cabin Boy" that had me worried.

Urban myth from a story published in the Guardian in 1991 and subsequently recanted.

The cabin boy was called Tom.
