British Culture Sectioned

No Comments August 15, 2005

So, Davina McCall reckons that those of us who think that the nauseating Big Brother is obnoxious, vapid, mindless, soul-destroying crap are "pseudo-intellectuals who have never really watched it". Fair enough, I've not watched it at all - saturation media coverage has ensured that I know more about what happened on the programme than I want to. Pseudo-intellectual? Possibly.

But I'm sorry Davina, you can't seriously expect us to buy the line that "The people who go into that house are a cross section of British culture. They're not freaks."

Really? Is British society really soley comprised of media whores looking for Z-list celebrity status? If it is, maybe it's time to emigrate.
