Robert Kilroy-Silk is Going Down!

08-01-2004 18:28

For a preening, smarmy, solipsistic, unenlightened, foghorn-voiced, bigoted creep, Kilroy has certainly made a name for himself. This self-styled man o' t' people can't construct a sensible sentence, but he does know how to ingratiate himself with what is misleadingly called Middle England. Howling down sensible suggestions from an audience member, cat-calling opponents of his waterhead views, simpering with victims of crime, sententiously moralising over the latest Big Issue and countless Non Issues his show producers concoct to fill air time, I haven't yet been able to find within me the sufficient reserves of vomit to express my admiration for his show.

But! Now, we may see the Gobby One silenced for a bit...

The Killing Season

08-01-2004 13:06

Last month, the decaying bodies of elderly couple George and Gertrude Bates were found at their home in Tooting, London. Two months previously their gas was cut off as they had failed to pay a bill of £140.

Each winter brings a new crop of deaths from hypothermia where many thousands of people die needlessly. Sometimes these deaths are reported, but more often pensioners die in a lonely flat swaddled in blankets in front of an electric fire which failed to keep them alive. Their solitary death is noted by few, and may not be discovered for weeks after it occurred.
