What's wrong with Great Britain today?

For god's sake we complain about anything and everything!?

First it's the Brand/Ross incident and now it's Top Gear....

I can just see the Daily Mail Starbucks coffee drinking Apple Mac users just waiting for the next "offensive" TV personality to make a joke so they can complain like some huge cross bred herd of sheep.

Where did our sense of humor go as a nation?

i agree, Ross/Brand made a silly mistake yet the press (as usual) blow everything way out of proportion.. this is the same press that hound people, print lies and ruin peoples lives at every opportunity they get.. personally i think Brand and Ross have more morals than reporters ever could have.

As we heard later, 2 official complaints after the Russell Brand / Ross show. Then, the Sunday Mail is published and thousands of the blighters are complaining. There should be a time limit on complaining! Do you remember, not so long ago now that any f words were bleeped out on The Jonathan Ross Show, even when used humourously! It then seemed to me that an adult post watershed audience was being treated like children. Please lets not go back to the bleep when JRoss hopefully returns - if he can be bothered after this.
Free Press -Yes of course, but let's have Freedom FROM the press as well.

I agree - now days there are too many so called PCs (no I don't mean Police Constables) around. What happened to the good old days where everyone just got on with life and enjoyed themselves. Life was much more fun - people got on, there was far less violent crime and people would help each other out. Nowdays you can't do anything without worring some doo gooder will report you or stick their nose in. This is a very sad sign of the times - PC Britain gone mad!

since this whole thing has shown that the bbc can actually on viewers complaints, it is to be hoped that they might start taking some notice of all the complaints about announcers talking over the end titles of programmes. or maybe we need a press campaign to sort that one out.

regardless of whether or not what they did was funny, and the fact that andrew sachs won't press charges, what they did is illegal. and I think they do deserve punishment for that

As public figures they have a responsibility to act with a measure of restraint. Bating a pensioner is not what you would expect from someone who is nearly in their 50's and earning millions. What they did was in bad taste, however for me what is more insulting is the fact that Ross is getting paid millions to act that way. Get rid of Ross and use the money to give the public some decent programmes instead.

Topic Starter, I LOVE the irony that you are complaining about people complaining.

I don't think there's anything wrong in licence fee payers getting angry at overpriced comedians making prank phone calls to the relatives of the people they've shagged and leaving messages on their ansaphones telling them about it. Just because the Daily Mail doesn't like it, doesn't mean it isn't a bad thing.

Sorry, John, I`m afraid your message eludes me, lost as it is in a triple negative tangle.

John Gammon - are you really still wittering on about the non event that was Sachsgate all these years later ? Nobody cares anymore and only saddos with nothing in their lives cared at the time . After the first 25000 complained what exactly did the next 5000 expect to achieve by complaining . Daily Mail dicks one and all . It wasn't until the Mail printed the story 9 days after the broadcast that anyone complained . The whole incident only goes to prove what a sad bunch of sheep many of the British public are - Daily Mail readers in particular.
