How does the man from the BT advert (the man/son from the Robert Lindsay sitcom My Family) have so much money?
In the first of the series, he claimed that his new girlfriend had moved her and her children in overnight. Now, I don't think this is the case. If he was in a relationship with a single mother, it would have been a very big decision discussed at length between the two adults. Now, bearing in mind that this happened, and it was his house they decided they would live in, why would a bachelor of his age be living in a house that had at least two spare bedrooms for the children? His suits don't look like they are from a man who's salary is worthy of a three bedroom house. I'm guessing he lives on the outskirts of London (or at least the home counties) from his accent.
In the second, or maybe a later episode, of the series he is seen having a good relationship with one of the children. I think this must have taken a long time to get to, so he must have been in a relationship with the woman for a very long time.
In one of the most recent adverts, he is seen walking past a billboard in casual clothes before entering his house. Granted, I have only seen this once, but it did appear he was carrying nothing. Now, I don't there is really any occasion where a man would be walking towards his house empty handed on the weekend. Usually he would have his wife/girlfriend and her children with him or carrying some sort of provisions like a pint of milk or a newspaper. But if he was in a family environment, I would expect those things to be delivered to his door. I thought initially maybe he was returning from paying a paper bill, but I have decided against this, as he would have still picked something up when he was there. The only explanation is that he walking from his car, which he had to park around the corner, having dropped the children off at a friends house, or football practice or suchlike. But this can't be right as there are no cars parked out the front. Maybe he had initially gone past the house to park but there was a car there, and now he has returned the space was available. But then, surely his attention would be more on the now available parking space, cursing his rotten luck at having to park round the corner, than the billboard advertising BT latest offer?
It may have even taken this long to get over the set on Sunday night. Better set than Astoria, better than Cardiff 6 years ago.

I wasn't really paying attention during MCR but that was quite good. As were the Kooks, although that second stage tent is massive. They should hire that out - I reckon you could get 20,000 people in there. And there was Taking Back Sunday too, but again, wasn't really paying attention. And it was daylight, and no band is good in the daylight.
The Audioslave album has been universally panned. I thought it was quite good.
