The Lewes Forum has just announced that it too does not in fact exist and is merely the product of the imaginations of those with too much time on their hands. The widespread nature of the delusion that it actually existed has been causing concern amongst no Lewes residents and anything which seemed to be posted which has any content at all is now proven to have emanated from a Spam boiler room in Russia. The local police have commented " is this a bacon sandwich before our eyes, and from it's toasted surrounds issueth not a dudgeon gouts of tomato sauce?"

Yes, I have always thought that 'whispering Dave's' nature documentaries bear as much resemblence to reality as BBC news bulletins ( ie. very little).
Why doesn't he and that other prize pair of Geriatrics, the Dimbleby brothers, shuffle off into the sunset and make way for the under 70s?

They reckon that Jeremy Clarkson is not real in fact he was moulded from a dog turd and then animated. Very convincing until he opens his mouth.

Far too little far too late. He must have known - unless he's a complete fraud- and then he could have made a difference: then.

Who, Dimbleby or Clarkson?
Anyway, Clarkson...he's a buffoon, and delights in being so. It pays his wages nicely, no worries that it provides the OK for his slavish admirers to behave in a similarly childish manner.
It's about time that scientists, engineers and teachers returned to being our role models. How does the future of our society look when our children look up to idiots like this? The shame is that he is not the worse by a very long way. The cult of vacuous celebrity should be stopped dead in its tracks.

To be fair, the 'cult of vacuous celebrity' relies entirely on the fact that some people are stupid enough to want to read about them in Hello! and stupid enough to watch them on chat shows. Kill the general public - that's what I'd vote for.

Would you kill them singly in front of their families or in large numbers in a football stadium perhaps?

yeah, celebrity interest has nothing to do with its endless promotion in every medium possible. It's all down to dumb punters. All this advertising and media coverage never has any effect on what people think they want, which is why so many companies never spend anything on advertising campaigns...

This is why the BBC is so important. A little uplift in intelligence and discrimination for all.
Oh, hang on..

True, Deelite, "hang on". You may not all share my point of view, but I did complain to the BBC very recently about what I considered a bad taste spoof Nativity play featured on The One Show (preceded by what appeared to be a send-up interview of Sister Wendy). You won't be surprised to learn that I have just received the usual self-justifying waffle in response.
