"Amazingly, foreigners want to watch The Jeremy Kyle show " to laugh at us!

Hardly surprising tho, most of the British are nothing but PIKEYS.

Chavvy, Weetabix teeth, illegitimate, smelly and oh so stupid, pikeys. Not even just the clampets on the council estate, its the upper and middle classes too.

You are perpetuating your own stereotype with all your previous El-Reg posts.

Rather than just describing yourself try a little harder and post something constructive, critical if you must but your pathetic rantings give away more about yourself than they probably should.

From one of your previous posts:

"Don't be British! Tarring all with the same brush is a negative relection of yourself"

You might want to take some of your own advice mate.

Amazingly, foreigners want to watch The Jeremy Kyle show - and their broadcasters pay for it.

I imagine broadcasters do pay for it - in lost viewing figures by those with more than six braincells. Payday loans, bingo, cash4gold, personal injury lawyers, trashy celeb mags, bookies, lottery, junk-food and unneeded over counter medicines are obviously also big advertisers overseas too then!

I know ITV was always supposed to be a wee bit trashy but its epic these days! Might as well rename it Lidl TV and be done with it!
