My god, could channel 4 handle this any worse? Maybe if they invited the BNP onto BBLB to discuss their policies? I am pretty sure when Orwell wrote 1984 he assumed that those in charge in his dystopian future would actually know what they were doing, indeed most dystopian futures seem to assume that the government/dictators/ruling classes are always one step ahead of the proles. Well if there is one thing Channel 4 prove, it’s that there is little chance of this coming true as most people in extreme power appear to be blinded it and tend to make rather silly judgments. I mean how else can you explain the the massive cock-up by channel 4 last night when they declared ‘to save Shilpa text xxxxx’ rather than the correct version ‘to evict Shilpa text xxxxx’. Worse PR evar.
Not to be outdone, Kevin Lygo, director of programmes at Channel 4 declared today that:
“This was in danger of being the most boring BB that we’d had in many years, maybe ever…..
……Lygo admitted wondering “what can we do?” before the race row “erupted into this extraordinary story”.
Wow, nothing like a bit of racism to spice things up eh? I dred top think how they are going to top that.
