I really should stop reading the Metro on the bus. I nearly fell off my chair and caused comment amongst my fellow passengers after reading this letter by Jamie of Paisley about Jade Goody which I will quote from below. The letter begins 'If a holocaust was ever to happen in Britain....'
It continues 'it would be because.....the media were able to distort the truth....' Stay with me, it's just getting good ' In much the same way that thousands of people who haven't even watched Big Brother are up in arms about racist bully Jade....'
Do you know all last week I was thinking this Big Brother stuff is very reminiscent of the rise of Hitler. Anyway it's the end that kills me 'it would be strong-minded, outspoken, courageous individuals like her [Jade] most likely to oppose it [a holocaust].
Am I alone in suspecting that in the event of Jade and people like her(God help us) being all there is between us and the gas chambers we are doomed? Imagine peering out from behind the barbed wire and seeing Jade approaching. The relief, the excited whispers 'it's outspoken Jade -we're saved' and then the groans of disappointment as Jade walks up to the fence mispronounces Anglia, bellows at terrifying volume about a boil on her arse, which in turn alerts the guards who slaughter us all without mercy.
I expect Jamie is only twelve or something. Poor bastard I feel awful now. Jamie my boy, take some advice from an old bag and try and acquire a sense of proportion from somewhere or sit quietly in a nice corner.
