Not A Proper Job
Slightly surreal start to the weekend at 8 a.m this morning. Tuning into Sky News Kate Burley was in Benghazi reporting on the 'rebels' fighting on the outskirts of a Libyan town and she hands over to her male colleague who is in a town described, in a way only journalists would ever do, as a rebel 'stronghold'.
"What news on the advance?" Kay asks to her colleague who is standing across the road from a ubiquitous sand coloured building.
"No news yet Kate, the rebels don't start work for another half an hour."
So there you have it, just over a week into the fighting and the rebels have adopted 'normal' working hours.
Switch to BBC 24 and there was your answer, Ben Brown was standing in front of a burned out tank surrounded by a group of wowdy webels waving guns, rocket launching ephemera and generally having a good time. Like office workers the world over they'd stopped off on the way home on Friday night for a bit of fun and just hadn't made it home yet.
