Blunkett condemns daytime television

In an outspoken attack, Work and Pensions Secretary David Blunkett has suggested that going to work cures stress and depression much more effectively than daytime TV.

How could BBC daytime favourites such as 'Bargain hunt', 'Cash in the Attic' and 'Mirror, Signal, Manouevre' depress anyone?

Here's an idea - halve the license fee and turn off transmission betweem 9am and 5pm, other than say hourly news updates.

He's only jealous because he has no idea how big Fern Britton actually is

Why any one takes that disgraced lying Blunkett seriously I dont no.

I am so unaware as to how big Fern Britton actually is, I don't even know who she is!

DV said...

Fern is BIG!

She is big but she's strangely alluring, another one off daytime telly to go down the nick is Judy Finnegan, she used to be hotter than a five quid shotgun but the years have not been kind.

People who work, get to meet more potential horizontal jogging partners, so they are less likely to be depressed. Blunkett should know what he is talking about.

Carol Vorderman is also going downhill fast!!

Yes Carol has definitely seen better days, it's all them home improvements. I saw a amusing bit in the LetterBocks section in Viz once where some wit asked why if Carol is so good at maths why can't she work out that her size 14 arse won't fit into a size 10 dress?

Having said that I still wouldn't mind nudging her around the Axminster now and again.
