I had the good fortune last Saturday to see the first episode of your new quiz show, "I love My Country". As a die-in-the-wool, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, John Bull waistcoat wearing British Subject, I have been looking forward to this programme for many weeks. Any quiz where at least one answer will be "Her Majesty the Queen" sounds like my cup of Tetley tea.
Within minutes though, my joy turned to abject horror.
What do I see running back and forth behind the delightful Gabrielle Logan - A GERMAN train!
Do you not realise how offensive it is for those of us with a full collection of Prince George newspaper souvenir issues that you can't be bothered to look at the scenery on screen? That locomotive is a Krauss prototype. Krauss - sounds a bit like Kraut doesn't it. Are you getting the message? Good heavens, even the manufacturer of the model is part of the same empire we stood against in two world wars.
You can be sure that MY television will not be tuned in to this channel again to witness this travesty.

Dear Major Hufton-Bufton
We don't care. Quite frankly all steam engines look the same to us and in truth we think that anyone who can tell the difference is a weirdo who can just pay the TV licence and shut his face.
