Come out, stay in…who cares?
So the big news is Tom Daley’s gay! It’s true, it’s official – Tom Daley has said it himself, he came out on a YouTube video he posted, he said he’s in a relationship with a man. Now some of you (the ones who aren’t saying “who the hell is Tom Daley”) might be applauding his bravery; some might be questioning his wisdom; some might be thinking: well that is disgusting or wrong or unchristian etc.
I think what the f*** has that got to do with me? Why is this any of my business?
HOW IS THIS NEWS??????
I don’t care! I don’t care if he dresses up as Santa Claus and does a medal winning dive off the top of Nelson’s Column (yes he’s a diver by the way) as long as he doesn’t land on me. I don’t care if he decides he’s gay, straight, bi or actually fancies the hole in a fence. It is not my business and it is not bloody news! Why are real issues being pushed off the front pages of the (somehow) popular newspapers to be replaced by absolute crap?
It doesn’t seem to matter that there are actual hopes of peace in the Middle East because there are another batch of Z-list celebrities eating testicles in a jungle somewhere. Wake me up when it’s their own testicles they are eating. I agree with Jack Dee when he said the only way to make it worth watching is if a Japanese soldier, who didn’t know the war was over, came out of the jungle and started shooting them!
It doesn’t seem to matter that, in what I understand is the 6th largest economy in the world, elderly people will be dying of hyperthermia this winter because they can’t afford to heat their home. Even the Queen is suffering it seems because she applied for heating allowance from the public purse. Yes that’s right, the world’s biggest landowner and one of the richest women on the planet wanted some of the money set aside for the elderly and infirm so she could heat her many palaces.
It doesn’t seem to matter that so much of the country is being crippled by austerity measures to replace the money we gave to the banks to prop them up; at the same time there were tax cuts for the rich in the budget. It doesn’t matter that in towns and cities all over the country food banks are appearing so families have something to give their kids to eat. Why doesn’t it matter? It doesn’t matter because there are pictures in the papers of the lovely Duchess of Cambridge who has a flat stomach so soon after giving birth to our future king.
So Tom, I’m glad you’re happy mate, I’m pleased that you have found someone to care for, but please just keep it to yourself eh? Come out, stay in…I honestly couldn’t care less.
