Cab blab!

The interview turned out a spoof
When the BBC made a huge goof
Instead of Kewney on air
They put a cabbie in his chair
And now cab fares are going through the roof!

Times Online 13/05/06: BBC falls for 'expert' cabbie's banter. The corporation’s News 24 channel later apologised to its viewers and admitted that its interviewee was not Guy Kewney, the respected editor of, but a local taxi driver. Read about it here. You could also watch the amusing video clip of the interview here

Ok, here's an update:

Well he isn’t a cabbie, it seems,
Had come seeking the job of his dreams.
His first name being 'Guy',
It perhaps explains why,
He was aired live by the BBC’s teams!
