The world’s finances are in a mess, thousands of people are losing their homes and jobs, Afghanistan and Iraq along with many other counries are being torn apart by war, and yet, and yet, our illustrious press and broadcasting media see fit to put the lewd ramblings of two overblown, overpaid, (at our expense!), self-opionated, self-centred creeps, who add nothing to the world of culture (or in fact anything else) at the top of their news reports and banner headlines!
Brand has resigned, presumably reckoning that he will get a placement somewhere else, while Ross seems to be sticking it out, hoping it may blow over.
And of course there are the producers and directors who allowed this to be recorded, and subsequently broadcast…….hopefully they will have the decency to resign, and not just give us the old chestnut…’lessons have been learned, procedures have been set in place etc etc……as our politicians constantly tell us.
I think the BBC should question highly the £6m Ross was paid, and just because he draws an audience, what is the cost to decency, and what it is saying to the audience he is spposed to be drawing. Let’s not forget that it is the licence-payers who are paying the bill.
