I guess there are some strange ideas about what racism is and they are not balanced in any way...eg...If in the UK you call a pakistani a 'paki'...it is racist. Why then is it not racist when the yanks call the brits 'brits' and the brits call the yanks 'yanks'?

I make a point never to watch these crapulent "reality" TV shows. However, one of my favourite TV presenters, Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear, has also been indulging in apparently Jade-like behaviour, by referring to her as a "racist, pig-faced waste of skin and organs".

It got a laugh, as did his comment a few seconds later when regretting that bad weather had spoiled their filming schedule, that "We'll do what everyone else does - blame global warming".

Perhaps Jeremy is also going a bit OTT, even for someone with my crude sense of humour.

Anyone stupid enough to take part in one of those so-called 'reality' TV shows deserves all they get. I have never felt any sympathy for any of them, the publicity-seeking narcissists. Jade is no different in that respect.

If she really has £8M, why on earth did she do it? She could retire on that (I wish she would!)

As for finding her attractive, Shambles, words fail me.

Not sure that I said that I found Jade (or her mother) to be physically attractive. She is not my type and Shipa's looks are far more to my taste - but it is said that beauty is only skin deep.

It is what lies underneath the made-up image that is important. What I detect underneath Shilpa's manicured apprearance is not very attractive at all.   

Jade is far more sinned against than sinner - and apart from her general knowledge - is usually more often right than wrong.

She is certainly outspoken and has a tendancy to fire other people's bullets for them, while they sit back and allow her to take to resulting flak. A point perfectly demonstated in the first spat with Ken Russell - who was clearly in the wrong for selfishly, if not perhaps intentionally threatening other peoples food budget by his actions but didn't much like this being pointed out to him (by Jade).

For it was in fact Shilpa who first pointed out what he was doing wrong. And who then watched as Jade was made out to be in the wrong and accused - by the far better educated Mr Russell - of having a screw loose for taking issue with his anti-social act.

This was probably not wise of Jade and it was not wise when it was her who actually challenged Dirk over not sharing his whisky - when it was others who were doing the grumbling and making these bullets, behind his back.   

But as I have said - the person who has never been guilty of unwise actions can cast the first stone.

She has come a long way in the last few years, lets hope she will learn a valuable lesson from this and move on and get herself an education that she so obviously needs

If she does - let us hope see puts this to better use than many of those who would judge her seem to.

The best educated of us are still able to do unwise things.

having done so - they may be better able to explain and excuse it away than Jade - who has now done all that could possibly be expected of her - but still the far better educated media continue to judge her as if she were worse than an accused, tried and convicted child murderer.

If only equally unwise politicians and those who fail in responsible positions were to be subject to this kind of feeding frenzy by our educated media.

Hi ib48
Sorry, been away for a while, i have no real opinion of her at all, i have never met her, and would save such strong opinions until i had. My quip about a chip on both shoulders was a satirical line about your previous post, as no one has posted such strong views and so intensely direct as yours.
She is obviously not the most intelligent person in the world, but that is not a crime. I dont think she should be persecuted for her ignorance, rather encouraged to get an education,,, but as someone has already said, channel 4 knew this and have taken advantage of her.

I don't really bother watching BB (any of them - does anyone make TV fiction anymore?) but the odd time it's on in the background in friends' houses etc., It's mind-numbingly awfully boring - you'd get more stimulation pulling back your curtains to watch the world passing by on the street outside. I wouldn't be surprised to discover that Jade had been encouraged to be as obnoxious as possible by TV chiefs in order to push up ratings (maybe, maybe not). It seems each new edition of BB must go to further extremes in order to catch audience's jaded (no pun intended) attention....it's only a matter of time before someone is murdered on reality TV, perhaps we can call it Big Cluedo (BC).

Of course I agree, whilst we all enjoy a good shit and its fun to sit around the campfire telling tales of the great shits we've had, singing songs and celebrating that moment of parturition. Breathes there a soul so dull, I ask myself, whose heart does not leap in enchantment in that magic of the plop.

And I'm sure they'd also flock to see public executions, whippings and brandings. it doesn't make them right!

And your judgement of them as being wrong (or of passing a law based on that judgement) - will not change the appeal of such things to certain people.

Shows like BB (perhaps not the celeb version) are simply holding up a mirror. If you don't like what is reflected there - blaming or breaking the mirror will not change the refelcted image.

Given that we rather have to accept all aspects of human nature as the reality it is - I would rather have BB on TV (as I have said - the perfect TV show for all) than public executions, whippings and brandings or return to the Roman Games.

How about you?

Those of you who clearly enjoy the programme; don't you feel just the tiniest bit ashamed at your prurience?

No.

For the appeal is the same for TV soaps with scripts and actors - except that any drama in BB is real - rather than pretend emotion. Possibly many avid soap watchers would turn off Corrie and Eastenders - if instead of peeking on their neighbours through the curtains, they could watch live action on their TV from cameras installed in every room next door (and then be able vote who to evict from it).

And why this whipping of the media for commenting on the issues raised? Do I take this to mean that the actions which attracted so much comment are actually acceptable? That boorishness and ill manners are somehow excusable?

No - it means that those who enjoy judging what others choose to do should probbaly watch the show - before passing judgement.

And that responding to what is judged to be displays of boorishness, ill manners and bullying with even worse displays of boorishness, bullying and ill manners being justified and splashed all over the front pages of newspapers and commented on by every radio DJ and TV presenter as if these spats were a major world issue and the victims had no feelings - is even worse.

Because then - as the perpetrators are not subject to 24 hour TV coverage, not able to escape from each other and intentionally wound-up - there is absolutly no excuse for subjecting certain contestants to it whilst at the same time almost worshiping others.

And of course this current fawning and worshiping of Shilpa has nothing to do with the fact that anyone who publicly dares to even try and bring a little reality and fairness back to our traditionally fair-minded country - is terrified of also being called a racist.

A charge that does not need ay evidence, trial or conviction and even when retracted, the word itself (even when it is so ill-defined) is enough to effectivly end any career.

A factor that any future employers of Shilpa and Jermaine Jackson who were both seen to play this card - will now be very aware of.

I suppose the the thing is that most people on meeting someone they don't like the look or sound of, avoid them.

Well these people can't - not if they want to be on telly. So they devise strategies. Sometimes of quite mind blowing evil, sometimes betrayed by remarks of casual nastiness. And thus they deal with the situation. Or so they think, but the camera captures everything.

There are levels to this game. Its a cross between the bearpit and the chess game. The cruel and and mocking tones of the presenters is an inherent part.

It wouldn't be my choice of TV, but my wife loves it so I get sucked in every year, and before long I know all the people - whether I want to, or not.

A lot of the external fuss about possible racism was about Jackiey referring - on her exit - to Shilpa as 'the Indian'. She made no pretence of liking Shilpa on a personal level - but for the following reasons, she was at that point really confused as to how to refer to Shilpa.

To anyone watching - it was obvious from early on that Jade's mother and the a certain extent Jade herself had a problem hearing or grasping the meaning and with pronouncing certain words. A point that the housemates were just starting to understand how to deal with - when Jade's mum was evicted.

Hence Jackiey's question about what a 'dimella' was.

It was obvious that she also had difficulty in hearing and pronouncing Shilpa's name. Choosing instead to call her 'princess'. A term - that when used as it was by Jackiey, without any intentional irony - few would object to.

For it is now overlooked that Shilpa did get very angry with this (if not in isolation). And despite being aware by this time that Jackiey had a genuine problem with hearing and pronouncing this name - insisted that Jackiey used her name and stopped adressing her as princess (but did not object in the same way when others address or referred to her as this).

The makers cannot just see prejudice and bullying only on grounds of race in one direction only) as unaccepatable. Are not other grounds, such as class, sex and mental ability etc equally unacceptable?

The subsequent spats were not racist or any other kind of bullying.

What we saw was simply the usual 'bitching'. Which when left alone from outside pressure and judgement - the participants will sort out for themselves. As they usually do - and as they largely did in this instance also.

No its because they have a talent for abuse, which is aimed invariably at the weak, defenceless and inarticulate. In short they are bullies on a much grander scale than anything Jade could or would aspire to.

When Clarkson takes on someone with any gumption at all, for example the interview iwth Jonathan Porrit - he has to draw his fangs in pretty damn sharpish. The man's a wanker. A nasty one and incompetent one as well. He never seems able to get down to the level of a normal car buyer. Spends his time waxing frustrated because a Skoda isn't a Lambourghini. Whats the point of that - it would be nice to know what the salient points of difference between that and a Berlingo are.

I'm puzzled as to why Clarkson and other media rent-a-quote 'arseholes' were 'middle class bigots' standing naked and drivelling (a most attractive image!). Is this because they didn't see the class basis of the slatterns' behaviour and their celebration of wilful ignorance and prejudice in a wider sense and instead saw it as a narrower prejudice on racial grounds?
If they are 'bigots' because they found the behaviour of the three white women unacceptable, then I'm proud to count myself as a bigot too!
I'm inclined to agree about the off-camera 'coaching' however - the sudden changes of demeanour after the row came to a head in the media seemed too contrived to be true.

Though I would have to say that I think Shilpa Shetty was being true to her own lights....she behaved in a way in which she needed to behave to fulfil the expectations of those whe see her Bollywood films, I imagine. (Not that I have seen a single one).

The whole thing was contrived, nobody can dispute, & I have a firm suspicion that there were unrecorded or at least unbroadcast discussions between BB & some of the 'inmates' pointing out to them in no uncertain terms that their behaviour was unacceptable (despite BB engineering such, or considering it likely...in fact COUNTING on it occurring).

Spot on Shambles.

as for the 'get a life' brigade. this was brilliant television - a programme that cut through the bullshit of 'oh we live in a classless society' better than anything since Dennis Potters early plays like Vote for Nigel Barton.

Complete media arseholes like the talentless Clarkson and the Fleet Street journalist fraternity stand naked and exposed as the drivelling middle class bigots they are - with the powers of cerebration of a bloody earwig.

I watched about 20 mins worth of assorted clips and the Saturday morning "catchup" two weeks ago. I understand even the "live" show was edited anyway - switching to different cameras appropriately - which raised suspicions in the press as to whether the editing could have skewed the impression given ; no view on that. I do feel that she was set up by the media though. In particular, I found ogffensive the way they attacked her so readily, after they had built her up into a Z-list celebrity in the first place.

The saddest thing about Big Brother is that it is successful, and people watch it.
Don't they have any life of their own?
