James Blunt 'worse than traffic wardens'
31 July 2006

Britons still hate traffic wardens - but not as much as easy-listening warbler James Blunt, according to a new survey.

A poll conducted by a health drink firm revealed the 100 things Britons find most annoying. Cold callers came first, with caravans second and queue jumpers third. Blunt, who had an AOR hit with "You're beautiful", pipped traffic wardens into fourth.

Our ticket-issuing friends weren't the only motoring-related group to feel the wrath of the British public, though - tailgaters came sixth in the survey.
