in thinking the whole Ross and Brand thing is a storm in a teacup and that people are DYING in the congo and quite frankly its pathetic to give two shits about Jonathan Ross, Russell Brand OR Andrew Sachs and his gobshite daughter?

You are most definitely NBU.

def a storm in a teacup considering the current state of the congosadand the world does f all about it.

WorzselMummage Fri 31-Oct-08 17:31:56

I find it very odd that anyone would give a shit !

YANBU!!!!! Well said!

Can't believe Gordon Brown has stupidly got involved, or that it's front page. And Brand didn't even say it so I don't know why it's about him.

YABU, of course. Though it is a storm in a teacup, granted.

This sort of thought did occur to me when comparing the amount of responses to Manuelgate, to those on the thread re the investigation into the death of Jean Charles de Menezes.

I agree - a total storm in the media teacup!

Tiggiwinkle Fri 31-Oct-08 17:33:24

I think the whole thing would have to be seen to be believed to be honest. It just seems so stupid to give so much airtime to something so trivial...

Ladyface Fri 31-Oct-08 17:36:03

Totally agree with you. I hate the way the government have jumped on the bandwagon too as it's diverting attention away from the recession.

OK, I'll say this again (I think I've said it to everyone else! grin). I think the reason this Ross/Brand thing has taken off (apart from media coverage) is that it is sort of pissed offness at the amount of money Ross is paid (although I couldn't give a toss) but mostly because it gives everyone a chance to express how fecked off they are with the rudeness, crudeness, lack of respect and downright fuckwittery that we seem to be forced to put up with in this country and I think that is a big deal, not life threatening obviously but important. I think a lot of people feel the need to reverse the trend before it's too late and this is a good excuse to spout off about it. The presenters aren't really relevant tbh.

I think Jonathan Ross should redeem himself by giving a years annual salary to children in Africa.

pointygravedogger Fri 31-Oct-08 18:06:19

how do you know he doesn't already give a lot to charity?

jimjamshaslefttheyurt Fri 31-Oct-08 18:06:46

oh god I agree; totally. And I have spent far too much time on here trying to say that.

Flightattendant4 Fri 31-Oct-08 18:08:31

Yabu Enid - it's light relief.

It isn't like we don't care about the other things in the world, but there's a limit to what you can say about it. It's not a 'right or wrong' debate, it's obviously painfully wrong, and the JR/RB thing is faff but it can be argued about. It brings up different issues we might actually have some say in.

Surely there is space for both topics?

hunkamunka Fri 31-Oct-08 18:10:42

fair point pointygravedogger..lets hope he does earning that much.

NotSoRampantRabbit Fri 31-Oct-08 18:11:16

Hear Hear

FFS I couldn't care less about the whole foolish fandango.

Surely the BBC, newspapers etc should be devoting coverage to the really important things...

Like Kerry Katona's addiction to alcohol.

Posh's hair.

Jen's love life.

Or the vile disaster that is unfolding in DRC.

Think poor Mr Sachs must be gutted he made such a fuss now as all these photos are surfacing of his not-very-wholesome granddaughter...

She looks like such a lovely girl grinhere
