Titanic Nominations
1. Worst Airport Miami International if I am coming off an international flight. I have missed more internal connections there than anywhere, simply because of the sheer number of  people going through immigration. If you arrive when a Caribbean, Latin American, Central American or Mexican flight has arrived, you have time to get married and divorced in the line.
2. Worst Flight Any flight involving a European low cost carrier that has little respect for passengers will do, but the most notable was the now defunct Maxjet from London to New York. The cockpit windshield broke and we diverted to Iceland, where there were no plans and no preparations for us.

3. Worst Airport Lounge Among the worst is Cairo – it’s a miserable lounge with poor facilities.
4. Worst Toilet Any time when I have to use “natural conveniences” while filming in the desert, forest or outdoors. I cannot stand the “bush toilet.” My insides just decide not to co-operate. Obviously something deeply Freudian going on.
5. Worst Meal I HATE, LOATHE, DETEST the breakfast buffet in hotels. Fine for the cold stuff, but seeing eggs and meats just sitting there – Ugh! And I am up and down like a yo yo as I remember the milk, oh, forgot the butter. Damn, now need the jam. Oh no, now the toast is ready.  Just give me a good old fashioned US-style diner where I can sit and enjoy my breakfast with the morning paper.

    Calling Richard Quest a “journalist” is like calling Howard Cosell a boxer. The only thing worse than his abrasive voice is Richard Quest’s face.

    These so called ‘anchors’ are another form of 1% people. How about if an anchor after getting up to 401K will be required by law to quit and another anchor is placed instead? It gets tedious seeing the same people AGAIN and AGAIN as if the entire tv network had no other people, as if there were no other people who deserved that job or who deserve to share that job.

    These ‘anchors’ are TOO RICH for being a mere mouthpiece. TV networks should not saturate the viewers with the same person and voice, this is psychic imprinting, is unhealthy and manipulative, probably politically motivated. Would any honest TV network spread the wealth? A single appearance for 30 mins makes these ‘anchors’ more than what another hardworking citizen does in a week. We the taxpayers did not vote in a government that disregards the above issues. Ask you MP about this to see their views then decide if votable or not.

    Better 2 years worth of work for so many different citizens, to end up with 100 more people who will not be poor, than a single plutocrat journo while so many homeless bu photogenic and charismatic citizens left on the wayside suffering and contributing negativity and even worse.

    The difference? 99 less likely to riot people, 99 less homeless people . . . do the math. If the entire workforce and hiring paradigm of these plum jobs are well distributed, we’d have less problems with poverty. Obviously nepotism or unfair practices in wealth distribution. End this form of APARTHEID.

    Too bad CNN did not get rid of this guy when they had the chance after RQ was arrested in New Yorks Central Park in posession of Meth, a rope around his (obviously too small?) genitals and a dildo in his boot (yes, not shoe!).
    Now he is to be seen on a daily basis with Quest means Business… ahhhh ship him back to the UK to do the weather for lets say, a small Welsh local TV station that caters only for the deaf…
