    Lol I am Wiki'ing also. I cant believe that.

    Edit: Erm the only think i could find really is that Lancashire is not a sovereign state because United Kingdom is a sovereign state, So that would mean that Lancashire is part of the uk (just to clear things up :D)

    I would like to take some time to possibly type out a long post reguarding the Crap TV reality TV shows such as Strictly Ballroom, Strictly Come Dancing, Strictly Come Iceskating, Big Brother, Ima Selebrity Get me outta hear. X-factor & the rest of the junk that we londoners have to put up with on our screens.

    the program id like to have a short/long rant about is X-factor....

    First up - the Judges:

    Simon Cowell - has the personality of a wet sponge.

    Dannii Minogue - More 'qualified' then Simon since she has been/is still in the music industry.

    Louis Walsh - I like irish people so this guys alright

    Cheryl Cole - yes just like Dannii she has had music industry experience but only after Girls Aloud were cherry picked from the same 'talentless' schemes such as X-factor to perform in front of the masses. but IMHO shes an incompetant attention seeking whore who knows nothing about talent let alone writing songs & performing like real talented artists do.

    Ex Judge:

    Kelly Brooke - are you fucking serious???? her being hired as a judge shows what a joke the show is.


    If people had that kinda talent they would be forming their own bands or doing school/college/uni performances & being 'scouted' there & then by someone from the music/acting industry not stood in front of a panel of judges who with the exception of Dannii - wouldnt know talent if it ran them over with a bus.

    their just ordinary people trying to 'big it/themselves up' at least with Strictly come dancing. there is at least 1 expert who specialises in the type of dance to critiqe the dancers dances.

    some one should seriously shove a brick into Cheryl Coles mouth every time she opens it to speak.

    there are plenty of chances for people to make it big, some people just need to overcome certain mental restrictions such as shyness to grasp the opotunity that is handed out to them.

    Reality TV is poor, but the nation loves it for some reason.

    As for Cheryl Cole, yes she's good looking, but she is as you said an "incompetant attention seeking whore who knows nothing about talent". Newspapers don't make it any better either.

    Other shows, like Strictly come dancing, are just jokes... they are, SHIT!

    Anyways, im off to bed. Nighty night ladies.

    Dannii Minogue cannot sing i dont know anyone that takes her serious as a singer yet she judges people who can and cant sing well she managed to get by with a pretty weak singing voice going off her sisters reputation.

    I hate how all the above are loved by women my wife has them al on her personal planner i basically get to watch the tv when she falls asleep lol all i can say is thank god for computers!!!

    Haha So true, But there is one person in the Uk that annoys me more than t.v shows. And that person is TIM WESTWOOD. :mad: Pimp my ride was great (well I say great but it was good to see the final result) But Pimp my ride uk...I mean, we get that prick who is trying to be all "gangster" and giving it gang signs and what not. He killed it. And the more annoying thing is, allot of people outside the Uk, watch pimp my ride uk and think that is how we are!! "i mean Com' on G, We aint all lik dat."

    tim is respected in the music industry but on the street hes a loser who is trying to be a something he isnt

    he tries to copy xzibit and stuff on pimp my ride uk and its pathetic, he comes out in gear that looks like stuff from the original ice cube friday movie all those check shirts and stuff, he can t pull it off and acts and fails like an idiot

    CH4 firday nights had father ted and trigger happy tv and south park now its all bull shit

    ch5 used to have cool movies and porn drama movies on late at friday

    bbc is a joke but its iplayer is cool

    everything has changed from the late 90 when stuff was cool now its too much stereotype and social groups, they were around back then but less noticeable all this indie shite and being an emo is just a joke
     
    Tatty_One says thanks.

    Agreed, also the news annoys me. I mean don’t get my wrong I love knowledge but not when it is constantly trying to scare people with "Gangs, Knifings, kids with kids, Murders, Shortages on salt (when really there isn’t, I know poor example but you know what I mean)" Just non stop bad things and there is never any good news about Britain, I vote for ether funny pictures or videos to be played once within an "advert lineup". That would lighten my day up.
