IF you even bothered to watch it, I’ve no doubt you thoroughly enjoyed the cock-up at the Oscars ceremony last week.
As usual the ‘stars’, who often find it impossible to connect two words without a script, were utterly tongue-tied at the mix up, producing more waffles than Dick’s fast food Diner.
True to form, in their usual predictable arrogance, a number of them subsequently decided to use the opportunity to spout their knowledge of world affairs. Why is it, that purely because they have attained success in their particular field, they automatically assume they have now earned the right to deliver their political views to all and sundry? As entertainers, theirs is primarily a profession that should help its fans to escape, not indulge in the trials and tribulations of our real, often depressing existence.
Why don’t they stick to what they are grossly overpaid for?
We also need to remember that most of the ‘stars’ of the acting industry are uneducated drop outs. High school failures, who decided that egotistic greatness was more important than educational gratification. Hardly the qualifications that give them the right to advise us on world issues.
If I want to listen to politicians I’ll tune in to ‘Politics Today’ or ‘PMQ.’ Give us a break. They are of course often encouraged to regale us with rubbish.
I actually recall that when I achieved my ‘overnight stardom’, (twinkle twinkle!), I was suddenly inundated by a whole host of media outlets for my views on just about everything; from politics to puritism.
All I had actually achieved to suddenly become an authority on all these Earthly affairs, was to warble a three minute, albeit quite catchy, tune on a bit of vinyl! Hardly a qualification to become a bottomless pit of invaluable knowledge!
Oh, and by the way, I am increasingly of the view that Trump could become one of the truly great Presidents of American history.
Wot ya mean,’practice what you preach?’ I’m a columnist now, innit!
Keep the faith…
