Griggs annoys the hell out of me. Like so many other lemming commentators who think it's trendy to speak like that idiot Sandra Sully (the greatest sullier of the English language in recent history), she sounds as though she is speaking English as- a- second -language. She can't get through a single sentence without stopping after every word and mis-emphasising most of them. For God's sake, spare us the listening agony and send her to retraining, so that we hear conversational speaking, not staccato trendoid speak! It's appalling and unacceptable and it must STOP!!!!
