Sanctimonious Slebs? No Thanks!
The Guardian is reporting today that plans for an all-day save-the-planet-athon on the BBC have been dropped. Speculation is that some Beeb suits felt that it would breach their impartiality guidelines.
Forget impartiality - the idea should have been strangled at birth on the grounds of good taste. Who really wants to be lectured on consuming less by multi-millionaires like Ricky Gervais and Graham Norton?
The do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do contribution of slebs like Chris "Beemer X5" Martin and Sienna "Air Miles" Miller have hardly done much to move the debate forward, have they?
And let's not forget the embarrassing exhortations from Madonna at Live Earth.
Urggh. Shiver. Thank the gods it is not going to happen.
