Christopher Biggins and the fall of civilisation

“Suppose you’d invited me round to dinner to celebrate my engagement to your daughter, which do you think would be more offensive? If a) I got violently drunk, threatened all the male guests, abused the women doing the catering, shoved my tongue in my hostess’s ear, hurled a bottle through the window, felt up all the bridesmaids under the table, then retreated to the jacuzzi to shag your daughter’s best friend? Or b) if I made a mildly tasteless quip about the Holocaust?

There’s only one correct answer and it is, of course, b). We know this thanks to the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother…”

    he quipped to the X Factor beauty: “You had better be careful or they will put you in a shower or take you to a room!”

    Meaanwhile: Did Stephen Bear [current CBB baddie] SNOG Aubrey O’Day?

    It’s delightful to see The Spectator, hallowed political and cultural high-brow comment magazine, with a reference to The Areopagitica forsooth, get involved in the faux outrage around CBB. Ooh! He said What? They did What? Ooh!! Very Spectator.

    Never seen Big Brother either, but I’d say a dinner guest (any guest, let alone the guest of honor) who does A or B is offensive (is lacking in class, doesn’t know how to behave in public, and should not be invited back). It’s not a one is worse kind of thing, it’s an I don’t want an asshole at my dinner party thing.
