Those eyes, those eyes:
Article after article after article on them. This time it’s Countryfile’s Ellie Harrison moaning about only being asked questions about her appearance and not about nature or whatever.
OK, that’s a question to debate but what’s this I just saw?
‘We’re not married, but this was my great offering to him’: Countryfile presenter Ellie Harrison reveals she paid to have her arm scarred ten times to show her devotion to her partner
Why aren’t they married? Doesn’t she love him? If she goes to that insane extent, surely she’s serious about the guy? How does mutilating yourself show devotion?
Meanwhile, the other one in the lefty show Countryfile ‘reveals’ [cries for help?] that he’s mentally ill. Where does the BBC get them from? Surely it’s meant to be about the countryside, no?
Call me heartless and wish Alzheimers or Parkinsons upon me but what’s with all this mental illness guff going on anyway, costing the taxpayer billions?
Disclaimer: Don’t get me wrong – we’re all a bit loopy around the edges in some ways and there are genuine cases, e.g. Alzheimers or other degenerative conditions but this is ridiculous:
Yes, it’s loopy mothers, feckless fathers and lefty teachers behind a lot of it but what about the monster toddler in the store who goes around breaking things and having tantrums, while the mother smiles on benignly? That’s not the education system … yet.
And part of it is the abandoning of the code which Christianity provided, the work ethic, the philosophy of making the best you can with what you’ve got. Essentially, looking outwards rather than inwards at the navel. A narcissistic society will see this happen.
Sure, karma might get me for this post, I could have a stroke or whatever and be a vegetable and someone will remind me of this post but that’s included under the heading of genuine or Act of God.
I’ve always found Asperger’s a bit difficult to buy – hell, I’m pretty anti-social as it is and some of the readers here are also a tad curmudgeonly on their good days – but surely that’s the rich pageantry of national character, plus excessive tea drinking?
And yes, there is a great deal of lack of compassion for the unfortunate about, no doubt about it – yes, we should show some compassion … but for the deserving, no?
