Dumb question of the day.
I watch BBC Breakfast every morning and Louise Minchin has a habit of asking dumb questions, a risk of live TV I suppose, but she does ask more than most
This morning she was interviewing a guy who is swimming the entire length of the south coast from Lands End to Dover. He is currently held up in Ryde due to storms in the English Channel which are preventing him swimming the last few miles around a headland to Dover. Louise's question "Can't you find another route?" I suppose he could always turn back and swim all the way back round Lands End, past Wales, over Scotland and down the east coast!
