It has been rumoured that before ' Our Tone ' throws in the towel he will appear on a number of popular t.v. programmes, including Blue Peter [ ! ] and culminating in an interview with our very own Michael Parkinson. Perhaps J. Paxman was unavailable ?
However, surely ' Our Tone ' should appear on the programme that does most justice to himself and ' Cool Britannia ' i.e. Big Brother .
It has everything that reflects our modern society that Tone has been so instrumental in creating----foul, simplistic language ; evidence of dumbed-down education ; envy of the educated and /or successful ; exhibitionism and emotionalism ; a bit of violence ; racialism ; banal lifestyles and a vocabulary of about 100 words plus a few grunts ; a glimpse of nooky now and again for the adolescents ; whining and self-pity.
The new, exciting B.B. could be on the lines of Celebrity B.B. with a political slant.Who would be the contenders ?
Tone, obviously ; John Prescott [ to represent the horny-handed sons of toil ] ; Peter Mandelson [ nuff said ! ] ; Lady Thatcher ; Mr. Pastry [ if he is still alive ] ; Michael Foot.-----------------Obviously a bit of a mixed bag but that's what gives B.B. its ' je ne sais quoi '.
If the above did agree to appear, my money would be on Mr. Pastry.
