Oxygen of publicity

Thatcher said in 1985 “Democratic nations must try to find ways to starve the terrorist and the hijacker of the oxygen of publicity on which they depend.”

I don’t think this asphyxiation should be reserved for these chaps alone. In this lala world, there are quite a few others I’d like to see strangulated even more.

Without mentioning them by name (as this gives them further publicity), I believe people should just avoid mentioning these television shows and fake celebrities that have cropped up everywhere like a festering plague, sucking of the abundance of the world and growing evermore redolent in the process.

A typical case of news creating news and gaining momentum each time like a rolling stone that gathers mass was displayed yesterday, where a case of bullying on telelvision somehow resulted in further publicity for a show that, at best, is boring.

Therefore I say in 2007 “Thinking people must try to find ways to starve the ‘celebrities’ and the television producers of the oxygen of publicity on which they depend”

  1. As long as it is oxygen and not food they’re being starved of…They’re deathly thin enough already!
