Liberal Democrats in EastEnders
Norfolk Blogger takes the BBC to task and to pieces for its ridiculous treatment of a council by-election in EastEnders. It's top blogging.
I rarely watch the programme myself, but I imagine a more realistic coverage would go like this:
Lib Dem Canvasser: Hello, I'm calling from the Liberal Democrat Focus Team. We are going round to get people's views on what needs doing around here.
EastEnder: What's that s'posed to mean?
Lib Dem Canvasser: I see there are some potholes in the square. I'll make a note of that and ask the council to repair them.
EastEnder: I can't believe I'm 'earing this.
Lib Dem Canvasser: Is there anything else we can do for you?
EastEnder: Mind the stall!
