Property Porn sucked the life outa me!

Jesus Christ! … Who is UK Daytime Television designed for? – I think they have seriously got their demographics wrong. I say this as I have been watching it for a wee while now and it is absolutely saturated with what has been termed “Property Porn”.

You may know the kind of thing … “Location, Location, Location,” “Escape To The Country,” “Homes Under The Hammer,” , etc. , etc. , blah, blah, blah.

What the fuck! The people who watch daytime TV generally don’t have money … well not the kind of money that is touted around on these shows. It seems to me that you cant get any kind of decent living space in the UK for less than £200,000!

I read recently that the average age of the first time buyer in the UK is 38! … And they are the lucky ones.

I have lived my life in various accommodations – My Mothers house, bedsits, a shitty flat, staff accommodation for chefs etc, etc … all of them (well, bar my mothers house — which is only a rented council house) has been shitty and more than likely had a detrimental effect on my outlook!

And these situations are more than likely to continue.

I would like it known that not every fucker is born into money, not every fucker has a reliable and well paid rewarding job, not every fucker has an inheritance coming to them … some people have to live day to day, hand to mouth, in fear of bills and with no foreseeable way out of that cycle.

So you can take your mortgages, des-res apartments in London and converted barns in the Cotswolds and ram the right up your fucking arse!

Daytime TV does what I think its designed to do – to keep you down, to know your place, to aspire to things out of reach.

Frank Zappa got it right – It’s the slime coming out of your TV screen.
