Unacceptable Behaviour

Now, I know there are some things we really shouldn't joke about - women and children being held hostage by armed gangs - but really, it is extraordinary the lengths that music lovers have to go to stop Kerry Katona from performing. Let's hope that holding Katona and her family at knife point in their own home for hours will have done the trick. In addition to threatening her with dire consequences if she sings again, I hope that they also made clear that any more of those adverts for 'Iceland' would also be considered unacceptable. Don't get me wrong, I'm not unsympathetic. It must be terrible to be driven to having to break into someone's home and threaten violence to safeguard the nation's taste, but if you are going to do a job, for goodness sake make out sure you get it right and cover all the bases. I'd hate for Kerry Katona to think it was still OK to do those ads (or appear on chat shows and the like), thereby forcing those brave intruders to put themselves through that ordeal again, in order to set her right.

The question is, was this just a one-off on the part of discerning TV viewers/music lovers disgusted by Katona specifically, or are they an organised gang targeting micro-celebrities throughout the country? Is there some kind of nationwide secret network working on behalf of good taste in operation? Can we expect the likes of Vernon Kaye, Davina McCall and Dermot O'Leary to be receiving similar visits? Can we look forward to them (and scores of others) vanishing from our screens and airwaves under threat of death? Whilst I would never condone such threats of violence, I have to say that I wouldn't be disappointed if it came to pass. For God's sake someone has to do something about the rising tide of talent-free idiots who seem to have a grip on our entertainment industries. If the TV companies won't take action, then perhaps drastic measures are in order!
