channel hopping today, i came across a few minutes of "big brother". an apparently irish young man, alongside an apparently asian young woman, opened a dialogue with a black couple in a caravan, comparing them to romeo and juliet. in answer to the question "who're they, then?" the irish/asian pair tried to explain that shakespeare was a world famous english playwright, that romeo and juliet was one of his most famous works, and gave a short but accurate summary of the plot. to which our sarf landan friend replied " so this shakespeare geezer, he's famous for what? never heard of him"..... only in blair's britain eh?
