I am deeply ashamed that this revolting 'entertainment' - this human bear baiting - is now the face of Britain around the world. What's next? Public executions? Oh, wait, we've already had one of those. Still, I suppose they could always up the stakes on Big Brother and hang whoever gets evicted. I'm sure someone with a mobile phone would be able to record the event for our edification. Although maybe they wouldn't need to; Channel Four wouldn't want to miss that ratings bonanza, would they?
It's profoundly depressing. But I have to chuckle at all the nose-in-the-air critics of S60 who proclaimed that reality TV was dead and that Sorkin was tilting at long gone windmills. Sadly the crack-pipe is still smoking, and its fumes are as noxious as ever.
