Fuck Children in Need, have they not got enough money already? - I want to see their accounts. Give your money to these type of initiatives
Hmmm. Children in Need is a load of shite telly, yes. Celebs get smugged out, the kookiness is almost hernia enducing, but if it's the one way some disabled kids can keep their day centres opened etc then I say 'fuck the whales' to be honest.
If we want to stop this type of shite telly, then we must get back to taking care of each other properly, looking after those that need it and once we've prioritised get on with other things. We'll be in a much better place to do so.
Sorry, just read some thing 'real' about one child's account of life in a Catholic Church run Industrual School and his subsequent traumas. Kinda rattled me a bit.

Has a child? If you don't care much for them fair enough. I do get a bit disturbed by the 'animals over humans' thing though. I actually find it a wee bit sinister.
That besides, facts are that in order to make the world a better place for all the sentient beings out there, we have to at least try to make 'decent human beings' first.
That means less people. Less children. Even the Dalai Llama got into trouble for pointing out that obvious fact. I have no dislike of humanity, but I am sick to death of media/corporate/political bullshit re. the lucrative gains of continually spinning 'the family'. It's a great vote catcher/money spinner when we should be dealing with the facts., and why when I go out for a meal etc. do I have to put up with little Conrad or Tarquin 'expressing' himself by running amok around my table at my expense? Complain, which I do on principal, and the selfish response of the me-first New labour modern family brigade is astounding. I live here too. :-).
