There we were, watching BBC1 at 9.15am (don’t you dare judge us! We work hard!), and on comes that nice lady who used to be on The Apprentice. You know the one. Lego hair. Sensible shoes.
Anyways, they have given her a hard-hitting series on littering: people who drop it, people who pick it up, people who… oh, you get the drift.
In this episode, which featured way too many close-ups on dogs’ mess by the way, MM looked at rubbish left at public events. Gay Pride, for instance. Apparently, people who go on these sort of things and leave their rubbish by the overflowing bins to be picked up by binmen are simply not comme il faut. Vandals, we think she called them. Even though, if you are one of half a million people with some rubbish and care to dispose of it sensibly withinside of a bin, as MM would like – DEMAND! – then, well, you’re screwed, bins being a rarity at the best of times.
But it was the general tone of Miss Margaret’s report that rankled. Especially the bit where she said that the binmen needed police protection to pick up the rubbish after Pride because they would get attacked otherwise.
Silly ill-informed, style-challenged woman. No one has ever been attacked at Gay Pride. Unless it was a gay man being attacked by a homophobe, that is.
So, gays, no more complaining that Pride never gets covered by the BBC. It does. If only to show what dirty, disgusting, violent degenerates you are.
