You know something that's wound me up for a good couple of years now? It's when something happens, it can be anything slightly unusual in the public eye and is often something that has the faintest hint of scandal about it, like David Beckham getting pregnant or Britney Spears going off on one.

And they call it Beckhamgate or Britneygate.

It's every bloody thing these days. Chuck the word "gate" after it and it's the "correct" way to name a furore. It's cheap use of English, poor and lacking inimagination. It has to be stopped.

That's all today.
