"The HORROR! the HORROR!"

Oh FFS. Please...

What in the hell is Tony Blair and a slew of politicians doing getting involved with the utter rubbish that is Big Brother and the even worse absurdities that are the allegations of 'racism'?

Blair: "The message should go out from this country loud and clear that we are a tolerant country and we will not tolerate racism in any way."

Labour disclaimer: ..."we will not tolerate racism in any way, unless it emanates from mosques"

Look. Get a few gormless girls made good from Chavsville Central together with a haughty snob of a Bollywood Princess (a consumate actress who clearly attended the Princess Diana Tearful Doe Eyed School of Media Training) and place them in a cheap shot competition ... the result is a bunch of degenerate bitching that is worthy of only one thing - the off switch. It does not merit the kind of attention thrown at it presently from all quarters* from Parliament to the streets of India - most of whom haven't watched it. Take *Livingstone tonight on the news commenting without having seen any of it (prat) but..hey.. if its white racists he merely thinks he is talking about, no holds barred. Lets extend the racist label to the white working classes and the whooooole of Britain based on the brainless ignorance of those dummies paid squillions to appear in Big Brother? Good grief.

Over at Pickled Politics who have (predictably) stirred it all up - one post on the mosques expose and a dismissive shoulder shrug over the MCB role - but the same shrug is lost on them over Jade Bloody Goody? Give me a break. What is the world coming to when pure murder inciting hatred & bigotry is clearly presented to you warts and all and brushed to one side whilst what amounts to stupidity, snobbery and pure cultural ignorance on both sides of a nasty bitchfight becomes the issue du jour. Utterly utterly absurd. Being practically mute on some bigotry but marginalising the rest means you are full of shit.

Racism - its an industry.

(oh and someone might like to suggest to Jermaine Jackson that marrying a white person is actually ok in 2007 btw!...)

Update: yep what HE says.

Yeah and we get the usual jumping up and down in India or equivalent, burning flags etc. What a load of complete crap, and how good for ratings figures! Are these people all nuts what's wrong with the 'off switch'.

We can't ignore Big Brother because it is a symbol for all that's going pear-shaped in this country. It's part cause, part effect. It's hideousness tells us about ourselves.

I actually posted about this story myself. Never thought I'd see the day... But I find the awfulness of BB almost fascinating. It's like watching a car crash; appalling and you don't want it to happen yet you watch - for a while - regardless.

I don't believe the trash in the house was racist - and I'm not especially concerned even if they were. They are trash first and foremost; 'racist' (my definition by the way - not the liberal -left's stupid definition) is merely a sub-set of being trash, not the last word in disgraceful behaviour.

sorry, I made that comment after reading the comments following under the post in the link you gave.
We have these shows on every channel here. I can't imagine any political figure being asked to explain the actions of Flavor-Flav? On this topic, alot of other sites have expressd this was just a bunch of jelous bitches ... girls are stupid like that.
I think your point was why is this international news? And how did the interactions of a few individuals on a stupid tv show become a reflection of the entire population? .....
or something like that .... anyway I agree with you, but some have still bought into this drama. I've seen a few use it to point out the racist attitude of the white working class, the term chavs? was used.

Well put Alison, that was spot on. I was also taken aback by the reaction to the events in the BB house compared to the reaction towards the repeated incitement to murder. The distinguished aldermen of Britain and their clients must be well satisfied with themselves as they generalize about an "ethnic class" on the basis of the actions of a contrived group of characters.

I notice that Wiki has an interesting (and recently updated) page on the Dutch-spawned Big Brother franchise. It mentions an Indian variant of the programme, called Bigg Boss. I wonder how they get on.

Gary - i see what you are saying and think it has exposed some massive liberal errors in how they shaped society - but i dont think we should celebrate it as something to aspire to and i think that is what Big Bro and Jerry Springer trash tv does. It has also demonstrated via blogs mostly the massive hypocrisy in all this weighed up against the other channel 4 programme.

Thanks for the interesting comments guys
