I have become really irritated by the the BBC R5 presenters and staff almost en bloc declaring that they will 'keep us across an event'. This started about a year ago. Clearly, BBC management have told the presenters that the use of such an expression helps to demonstrate how in tune the station is with 'street talk' and therefore the 'common man'.

For me, it is poor english being deliberately used by people who know it is poor english but want to look 'cool'. Winds me up!!
