Ross and Brand part two

Re my post yesterday on the above "celebs".

It has been brought to my attention that this is a trivial item and much worse things are going on in the country, and indeed the world.

This is true but, if we ignore the small injustices that occur and just concentrate on things like the economy or the NHS, then we are in danger of thinking that the "big" things are all that matter.

I don't pretend to be an expert on any subject, but sometimes those people that are become blinkered and think that "their" subject must be the primary concern of us all, wrong.

We stagger through life from one problem to another, and most of us cope somehow, but some"experts" forget the fact that most of us have other things to concentrate on.

Yes the Ross and Brand thing was not earth shattering, but should it be ignored?, should we say "it was only a prank"?

Personally I don't think so, it was a case of elderly abuse, Andrew Sachs is 78, how would you feel if someone phoned your mother, or grandfather and left messages saying that they had F****d your sister or niece?

Abuse cannot be ignored, especially when it is committed by people who have been put in a position of trust, especially when it is so public.

At least Brand has resigned, before he was pushed, Ross has not, he has apologised. but he didn't even have the balls to do it personally, but through his solicitor. let's hope the DG gives him a shove, so that this "insignificant" occurrence can come to an end.

So I say to the "experts" who trivialise this matter, get your heads out of your arses. Your subject is important to you, it doesn't mean we all have to agree with you, there are sometimes more important things than the "greater good" being decent and caring, is a good start.

This is one of those times.
