I think Geraint has taken to presenting quite well but for me he doesn't have the voice to carry it off.



It reminds me of the ancient debate, before Angela Rippon's day, when they said that women would never command respect as newsreaders because their voices were too high. Fortunately that has now been established as complete rubbish. But back to Geraint, if I close my eyes and listen to him, he sounds about 14 years old and I just can't take him seriously.
