Is it just me? I hate Red Nose Day - seriously, I'm not after a bite. All we see are tearful 'celebs', half of whom we have never heard off, bleating on about the poverty in Africa. Well, what about the poverty in the UK? Yes, before some self righteous type leaps on me, I believe they do spend some cash in the UK, but the emphasis is on Africa. And who has put up the cash for the Z list celebs to white water raft down the river? How does that highlight the problems? Africa, for the most part, has been in a shit state since I was a nipper, many moons ago. If I didn't eat my food it was taken away to 'be given to the poor starving Africans - it wasn't, the dog had it. Anyway, all this loot that Geldof and Co raise - hardly any of it gets to the starving. I have no links but have read in the past that it actually encourages a number of them to follow the aid trail. It is also sugested that huge amounts makes its way into the pockets of officials and suchlike - shock horror. I know that there will be a couple of hand wringing responses, hence posting in Lil's, but I shall not be watching telly on Red Nose Day - I've got some special paint I want to watch drying. I also hate Sport Relief for the same reasons!
