Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!

Iswear to almighty God that we do not make these stories up but – believe it or not – Japan are worried that not enough of their people will be able to speak English when they host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games – so they are turning to Fawlty Towers. Yes, the classic BBC comedy series is being deployed by teachers in an attempt to give Japanese students an example of spoken English – rather than focusing on written language and grammar.

We have been a little concerned here at Jammy Toast as the day of Brexit looms. Today is the day Theresa May delivered the letter that formally begins the UK’s departure from the European Union. Giving official notice under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, it was delivered to European Council president Donald Tusk earlier today. However, what we are concerned about here at Jammy Toast is, where will we get our jammy fruits from once we have left? Trade with Europe will be more difficult and trade is likely to be more expensive once we have left. However, most of the fruit used in the production of our favourite Jams comes from Europe. We may have to pay much higher prices for our Jammy Toast!

Twitter is considering launching a paid-for service for businesses and power users. The micro-blogging service – which has struggled to grow its user base in recent years – is carrying out surveys to “assess interest” in the idea. Paying members would get access to an enhanced version of Tweetdeck, Twitter’s souped-up interface that offers more functionality than Twitter.com. However, please understand, the company has not made any indication it is considering charging regular users of their normal service.

Have you ever wondered why – even on Sky – BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 always come top of your TV listings? It now turns out that viewers may have trouble finding shows they love if public service channels are not guaranteed top positions on TV guides, major broadcasters have warned. Peers are currently debating a change to the law which says channels including BBC One, ITV and Channel 4 must appear top of on-screen listings. Major broadcasters argue public service channels should be protected as people adopt more personalised viewing habits. However, Sky says the networks are acting in “blatant self-interest”.
