Chinese Chopsticks

10/11/11 -- Today I read with horror in the Washington Times that China is to "largely phase out" television programmes that are "overly entertaining."

Lenny Henry and Dawn French have both been on the blower to offer their services I gather.

The article says that programs dealing with marital troubles and matchmaking, talent shows, game shows, variety shows, talk shows and reality programming are all at risk from the chop.

Just think if they brought that in over here poor old Brucie would never work again.

We'd have to do away with I'm a big brother celebrity dancing on ice in the jungle I demand a blood test to see who Chantelle's real father is bring on the talentless singing binman Christmas panto cook off with baby James as well. What a horrendous thought. Graham Norton would be buggered too. Match of the Day and Corrie would be safe though.

Where do we sign?
