Isn’t it a pity . . .


  • that Ross and Brand crossed the line,
  • that Russel Brand felt the need to resign,
  • that Daily Mail readers can’t think for themselves,
  • that the BBC feels that it should keep bowing to its agenda-loaded critics,
  • that hysterical gutter press hyping up of every non-story always seems to work,
  • that the Mail will now feel rightly-placed to demand it’s own standards of taste and decency and the public will follow,
  • that the Ross/Brand affair is more important to the public and the press than the tragic Congo crisis that is unfolding before our celebrity-obsessed eyes.

There have been some brilliant blog commentaries written about the incident and rather than just repeat what they’ve said, I’ve summed up above what I feel are the main points that I fully agree with and now, in the immortal words of Forrest Gump . . . that’s all I have to say about that.

  1. Utterly ridiculous amount of media attention given to this ‘affair’ imho. It’s a reactionary hunting pack baying for the blood of the ‘out of control liberal agenda’. These ‘righteous’ people of ‘middle England’ have made a habit of beseiging the BBC commentary box. Maybe too much democracy is not such a good thing. 😉

  2. Hi Matt, yes, knee jerk reactions induced by the Daily Mail and suchlike. No-one cared much about it at all until the Mail decided to take offence. And its readers followed like brain-dead sheep.
