Reader’s Comment of the Day: Comic Relief would be a hit on North Korean telly


In response to David Keighley: BBC-sponsored Comic Relief is just a front for the most ghastly Leftism, Ablanche wrote:

It’s also essentially the only career a number of the BBC’s pet “comedians” have left. I hate the bullying, hectoring adverts aimed at persuading children to pester their parents into uncomfortable comedy gestures and compulsory donations to causes that often seem little more than the self-promotion of the same state-sponsored celebrities who illuminate our sad little lives by by doing hilarious and humble things for the masses; like an Edwardian charabanc trip with the ladies waiting on the servants.

The hysterically jolly tone of the whole enterprise is (often literally) remarkably like North Korean state television and I am simply astonished that it is in any way popular, let alone apparently of increasing popularity.
