Yes, I liked that as well.According to The Telegraph, PM's house is to be turned into an astronomy centre.The Telegraph also seems to have started a campaign for Brian May to be the next presenter of S@N.David

That would be a good choice.But I do wish the media. Would stop referring to Patrick as eccentric. I for one don't think he was.

I doubt if he would want to do it. He would be better in other areas. I know who I would want.

Personally I would like to see John Mason in the chair supported by Chris Lintott.

John Mason is a good choice, but lets face it - you can't replace the irreplaceable.Good luck to whoever gets chosen.Gary
