To hell in a handcart

What's the world coming to, when the BBC can let go such luminaries of clear diction as Charlotte and Harriet?  Maybe I'm getting a little deaf, but I can hear every word when Charlotte speaks.

Not so for the Today presenters (Humphreys, I'm talking about you!) who have the alarming habit of letting their voice fall away as they move towards the end of the sentence.  And the newsreaders on Radio 5 are - literally - unspeakable, especially the wee girls who have to do the 5 am morning reports shift.
