Celebrity auction vileness

It was heartwarming to watch overpaid TV "celebrities" bid tens of thousands of pounds on the "Great Big Bid" tonight when the average UK salary is just £24,000 per annum.

The "celebrities" were all selfish. If they were truly generous, they would give to charity without seeking goods, services or publicity in return.

I wondered if I was the only person in Britain to feel the way you describe in your entry. Whew. I'm not alone.

Good blog -- I drop in from time to time to see what you're writing about.

Janet, I found it all quite distasteful, especially the amounts of money involved and how easily they were prepared to fritter it all away.

Nauseating.I watched it - watched that tosser, John Caudwell who owns 'phones 4 you' shell out 50 grand to 'buy' a duet with Bryan Addams.

He then admitted it was a present for his son. John Caudwell, a man who knows the price of stuff but not the value of it.
