Public service broadcasting

Various self-righteous posturing ninnies, of the Ken Livingstone variety, have been calling for Channel Four to take "Celebrity Big Brother" off the air, in the aftermath of the Jade Goody business. Sunny has been the most sensible commentator so far.

On the contrary, I think "Celebrity Big Brother" should be made compulsory viewing, particularly for the young and impressionable. As my partner says, "they (the participants) always think they'll beat the 'Big Brother' machine, and come out smelling of roses: but they never do". Somehow, this crap show manages to expose the truth about its participants: George Galloway was shown up for the ultra-right-wing bully and poltroon he is; Jade Goody, Danielle Lloyd and Jo O'Meara have been exposed as the racist chavs they are. This is all to the good, and should be applauded by all decent people. I want John Rees and Lindsey German on there next. And, maybe, Ken Livingstone.
