  1. Parky hits out at 'ignorant and puerile' Jade
    Tue Apr 07 10:54AM by TV Editor


    Sir Michael Parkinson has launched a tirade against Jade Goody.

    The veteran broadcaster told the latest issue of Radio Times that the late reality TV star represented "all that is paltry and wretched about Britain."

    He said: "Jade Goody has her own place in the history of television and, while it's significant, it's nothing to be proud of. Her death is as sad as the death of any young person, but it's not the passing of a martyr or a saint or, God help us, Princess Di.

    "When we clear the media smoke screen from around her death, what we're left with is a woman who came to represent all that's paltry and wretched about Britain today.

    "She was brought up on a sink estate, as a child came to know drugs and crime, was barely educated, ignorant and puerile. Then she was projected to celebrity by Big Brother and became a media chattel to be exploited til the day she died."

    His comments come just days after Jade Goody was laid to rest following a funeral that drew comparisons with that of Princess Diana. Thousands of mourners lined the streets and threw flowers as the hearse made its way to the service in Buckhurst on Saturday.

    Bang on. Why shouldn't someone with a degree of intellect speak what is to a lot of the population, the simple facts?

    Note that he didn't attack her, rather the media circus and society that placed her in the position she was in.

    Perhaps it is better to finish his comments

    Although I don't there is any love for Goody, it is her exploitation that has really hacked Parky off
     
  13. Well done Parky, Good man.
