He is on quite a lot recently and this is a bad move by Ideal World as the majority of people I know will switch channels when he appears on screen.The problem with Howard is that he is a compulsive liar constantly giving false stock updates like "I am just hearing that 20% of the stock is gone,sorry that is 25%,now it's 30% of the stock gone"........:angry:
He uses the exact same technique when notifying the public of phone queues "I have just been told we have 10 second queues on the phones,now it's 20 second queues,sorry it is now thirty second queues on the phones"........:angry:
How does he get away with telling so many lies,totally misleading the buying public ?
I mean if you are going to lie and deceive people you should at least try and make it look convincing,whereas Howard just blatantly tells constant porkies all of the time.
I watched his presentation of the Reconditioned HP laptop with Janice who unbelievably was wearing a creme coloured top instead of the usual black effort this afternoon and his presentation was pathetic constantly repeating false stock and phone queue updates,I couldn't watch it all as it was just too much for me to take in one sitting.
Ideal World need to have a word with Howard about his approach to presenting products as it puts people off...........:wait:

I was hoping he'd be on with Myra, so she could stuff a chi chi down his throat :cheeky:

Couldn't agree more. He drives my OH mad so as soon as he comes on now we switch over. It makes me laugh as soon as he comes on air trying to convince eveyone that the stock will sell out and the stuff is still being sold at 8pm the next day. Personally I think his selling tatics are probably one of the worst on shopping telly, he would do better to ditch the constant queue & sell out reminders and concentrate on just selling the products. I think he lacks any selling technique but I wonder if that's because he doesn't do any product research or he is just hopeless.

It's probably down to both of those reasons!

I think he's boring: the guy has hidden shallows!

I agree with Horatio: it's all hard sell with little or no product prep.

As soon as his smug mug appears on screen, I switch channels.

Lol this had my partner and I in stitches. (Especially when he was going on about his drawstring). When he was doing it with Sue Southall a few weeks back, it was enough to make us buy the 'Bellisimo' Comfort & Dreams!

It was a brilliant buy, we have never slept so well. :rock:
