How rank is TV these days? I don't watch much TV other than the news, some political stuff, the obligitary 'have I got news for you', a funny film now and then and maybe if I have time catch up on EWTN on tinternet... Yet being home I've suddenly discovered how bad it is. My mother has subjected me to EastEnders, The Paul O'Grady Show, Loose Women... And the worst of all - BigBrother!!

Are people just stupid? I think Haldane is right; people just want to be entertained by a bunch of idiotic, camp, fishwive gossip, and pointless psychological experiments and just wallow in stupidity... Can real life really be so bad?

Well mad trad has a solution - turn over to sky news, watch Lisa Burke and Lucy Verasamy present the weather then all lives problems will be solved ;o)

I am so depressed by what I've seen of the coverage of David Davis' resignation.

It's a bit of an interesting one; I'm not at all convinced he's done the right thing. I can see the principle but at the same time I feel like asking what's the point? He's actually compromised his position with the Torries and from a pro-life perspective it's a bit of a blow as now he becomes a high profile Tory without a job and without the influence he had in the Shadow Cabinet.
