The Tebbit Test

Cambridge Sony Shop. Saturday. Your host Damian “Ebony’n'Ivory” Counsell and a Sony employee of Asian descent who’s darker than a sideboard are wincing at the fall of cheap England wickets in their second innings. Mr Sony even goes off on one about a particularly shoddy piece of umpiring in the Aussies’ favour. Meanwhile all the white people are looking at MP3 players.
