bread and circuses

It is not often i find myself in agreeiment with a judge but in this court case his summary tends to reflect my own opinion .

Describing the Jeremy Kyle Show , the judge said the programme was aiming to "effect a morbid and depressing display of dysfunctional people".

"It is for no more and no less than titillating members of the public who have nothing better to do with their mornings than sit and watch this show - which is a human form of bear baiting which goes under the guise of entertainment," he said and went on to add .
"The people responsible for this, namely the producers, should, in my opinion, be in the dock with you, Mr Staniforth."
