    Target is for entertainment not information.
    Who care’s whether a tradesperson pick’s the knife up from the blade and not the handle or whether he is chewing gum!
    Even if he gets the result Target are after they still critizise him! The presenter is not the `our professionals’ as she refers to – yet she presents it like she is.
