    In case you missed the BBC News, Zara Phillips has won a silver medal. Now I thought it was a team event, but if you've been listening to the BBC coverage then it was Zara Phillips that won it for them.

    I always thought there was no i in team but the BBC seems to have done some very serious royal arse licking. What a snub to the other members of the team.

    Nor the radio commentary today. They mentioned others as much, if not more.

    If anything, it was Tina Cook that got the most mention having kept her cool right at the end to push for the Silver. But agree with Wore and Greg, I didnt hear BBC singling out Zara Philips. The only time that she got singled out is in a headline "Princess Anne presented her grand daughter with a silver medal along with the rest of the equastrian GB team". Which is perfectly fine as a headline.


    Edit: I meant daughter, lol.
