Huge amounts of TV, radio and the press is off-limits to me. I can’t stand to be in its presence and am physically revolted by it. This can even extend to BBC programming,particularly promos and ‘zany’ stuff for kids one might catch a few seconds of channel zapping.
I don’t mind people having fun and accept I’m odd I have trouble with the banality of what many regard as entertainment, good taste, sense of humour and so on. I’m generally tolerant and don’t want to force my views and preferences on others – though I’m sick of the miserable quality of entertainment, news and factual presentations of our dumbed-down media and suspect we could change it for the better.
What I’d have no problems with would be sticking the two clown Aussie radio-ratbags who killed the nurse clapped in irons. The may have had no intent to kill – but they are definitely part of a much wider problem and should do jail time. HMIC figures show that 17% of recorded incidents to do with public safety and welfare (which make up 40% of all police incidents) were hoax calls or abandoned calls to emergency services. These two Aussie cunts can be seen as encouraging this wider problem. A public flogging is in order to discourage the others.
