But, Wet Wet Wet Are Rubbish!

This has just arrived in my inbox. Why would I care about this? I have never, ever, expressed any interest in WWW and I can't see that changing in the near future, so why bother me with it? And anyway, in this day and age the charts are so ragged and tired that to be number 4 in the midweeks is about as impressive as remembering to go to the toilet when you need a wee.

Hi ****

I am delighted to let you know that the new Wet Wet Wet single ‘Weightless’, taken from the album ‘Timeless’, has a midweek chart position today at NUMBER 4. This gives them their highest position since BLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH

Kind regards

they have only achieved this by ripping off us poor saps who paid to see them on their "comeback tour" at the end of last year. Not far into the concert, one of the group (not sure which, could say the ugly one but it still wouldn't help) said "text blah to this number and you'll get a download of this song live". So everybody in Wembley Arena - well, it was only half full - gets busy on their mobiles, only to get a text in reply saying "you have been charged £[a huge amount of money] for this". Bastards! Never mind the fact the concert was so godawfully boring we walked out after 40 minutes...and we weren't the only ones.
