Why you shouldn't watch 'I'm a Celebrity'

Being a respectable Westminster-based news outlet, politics.co.uk doesn't watch programmes like I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

In no way would politics.co.uk be so vulgar and populist to watch a reality TV show, especially one which specialises in the kind of coarse humiliation rituals which pass for entertainment in modern Britain.

And even if politics.co.uk did accidentally switch on said programme accidentally last night, and promptly spend an hour enjoying itself immensely, it would certainly gain no pleasure from watching prominent former Lib Dem MP Lembit Opik being forced to handle rodents.

If that had happened, it certainly would not proceed to, say, cancel its evening plans simpl to watch said former MP be buried alive with rats and fight his way out of a makeshift coffin.

Nope. No way. It would never happen.
