Will Shipla Shetty Win Big Brother?

Possible. Because it's now a matter of the politically correct. Smacks of hypocrisy, but there you are, that's the way of the world. Ugh... I must admit, I'm no political commentator or for that matter an analyst. But really, do you need to be one to know which direction the wind is blowing in?

Nevertheless the shame of the whole disgusting Big Brother episode will stay a long time. Imagine racism is televised entertainment in a country known for it's tolerance towards all people! Apparently that was only a thin veneer that was waiting to be breeched. And look how ugly the psyche of that country really is.

"I have been in England for 25 years but now, suddenly, I see what is in the minds of ordinary English people." That's Joshua, a Bangladeshi waiter at the Vojan restaurant, Ongar, the despicable woman's hometown. But here’s what gets my goat. This… this quote below.

"Maybe I'm just really stupid and nasty at heart - but I really don't think I am." And that's from a confession by the Goody woman that appeared in the papers today. Just what in heaven’s name does it mean?

"Maybe I am....... but I really don't think I am." Hypocrite that the woman is, she's even more shameless that you’d imagine. She cries, she weeps copious tears and the yellow papers splash it all over their pages. Over five pages of the News of the World had close-up pictures of Ms Goody's tear-stained face. Why? I don’t understand that a bit.

It’s so apparent that it’s just a wash. Wasn't it just the other day that the Goody Bee said she wasn't repentant, that she had no regrets? Here, I'll quote it for you. "Shilpa was a victim of my bullying... I've always said that I don't have regrets, but I do now. I'm genuinely worried about how my life will be."

Oh! She's genuinely worried... of how her life will be. So she leverages later "Maybe I'm just really stupid and nasty at heart - but I really don't think I am." How much more revolting can an individual be?

But now we all know what the common English are really like. And to tell the world a different tale, they’ll make sure that Shilpa Shetty wins Big Brother. Typical!

You know what's going to be the most ironic fall-out of this? Shilpa Shetty's career being launched in the UK. She'll be a celebrity for all those corporates who will hasten to show how un-racist they really are!!!

Dinesh: Thank you. Come by again.

sense: HRUMP! You've got a very valid point there. Nothing like a controversy to revive a career... what?

so you have judged a nation of 60 million people as racist because one stupid woman called another stupid woman a popadom? also, when jade goody was called white trash, was that racist?

now, i know and you know too that it's not true. united kingdom is not a land of 60 million racist people. if that's what came through here, i'm terribly sorry. but here's a thought: why telecast such profane programmes? calling someone popadom isn't racism. it's the whole attitude that came through in the programme, it's the whole attitude that was projected by goody and her house mates against shilpa that was racist. would you agree to that?
