Worried Staff at the BBC TV Centre in London

Presenter Jonathan Ross did the honourable thing today Friday 19th October 2007 by resigning and saving 2,500 jobs which where under threat at the BBC.

Ivor Biggun spokesperson for Woss Promotions explained on the BBC TV mid morning News that Jonathan had been unable to live with himself at the thought of all his colleagues being out of work just before Cwismus.

The BBC spokesman M/s Delores Hi-Definition thanked Jonathan for sacrificing himself and his enormous salary for the sake of the Nation's favourite Auntie and went on to say "that not only would thousand's of job's be saved but with the money left over after paying Staff the Beeb would be able to produce all new programmes in 2008 without any repeats".

"They would also have ample cash suddenly available to fight off Sky which would enable the Corporation to show all the Premier Football next season along with all the Test Matches, Formulae One Racing, the Grand Slam Tennis, the Major Golf Tournaments, the World Boxing Championships and the World Conker Championship's in Peru".

For the Government Gordon Brown who is not a digital viewer welcomed the news as he was desperate to watch Ricky Hatton's forthcoming World Championship Fight in the USA.
Apparently he had wagered ten pence with George Bush on the Hit Man winning.

At mid day Sky TV Spokesperson Miss Norma Snockers announced that she would immediately be offering Mr Ross a prime time slot to fill. She also went on to say "Watch this space".
