Ah the arrogance and massive sense of entitlement and moral and intellectual pompous presumption of those in the Media Bubble.
“It’s a feast, isn’t it?” [the current political situation] sighs Lloyd, who’s a boyish-looking 65. Were the show to return, he thinks it would do “a very good public service”. Spitting Image launched on ITV in 1984 and regularly attracted 15 million viewers. “It informed people in an entertaining way about what was actually going on and it gave people a way of laughing at the situation, rather than going out in the street and burning a car, so I think it reduced the amount of civil disorder.”
Today, Lloyd continues, his piercing blue eyes troubled, “we’re living in an extremely dangerous world where everything seems to be dividing, as if there’s an emotional and moral earthquake going on.
“People are pitching to people’s emotional needs, people are voting with their hearts not with their heads, on the basis of extremely little information. With Brexit, it was extremely difficult to find facts about Europe, so most people were existing on prejudice one way or the other.
“If Spitting Image had been around, we wouldn’t have got into this pickle, things would have been debated a bit more. It’s not good for democracy that people are not informed enough and they just vote from the gut.”
And of course similar arrogant sentiments from dear old David Attenborough who thinks he himself is qualified to talk about Brexit but not the stupid people outside the charmed cricle he exists within….
The TV naturalist said the vote from 17.4million British citizens to leave the EU had created a ‘mess’ and argued that the decision should have been left to MPs ‘to vote on our behalf’.
‘There’s confusion, isn’t there, between populism and parliamentary democracy.
‘I mean, that’s why we’re in the mess we are with Brexit, is it not? Do we really want to live by this kind of referendum?’
He added: ‘What we mean by parliamentary democracy is surely that we find someone we respect who we think is probably wiser than we are, who is prepared to take the responsibility of pondering difficult things and then trust him – or her – to vote on our behalf.’
Yes…..just as the BBC is telling us how wise, intelligent and morally superior Donald Trump is…after all that is why Americans will vote for him no? Ah…suddenly the elected representative [possible] isn’t so wise and wonderful. The hypocrisy of the elite on show once again as they spin and spin on Brexit…astonishing how they think they will get our support by saying how stupid, racist and vile we all are.
