Unemployed, Unemployable Take to Streets to Unite Against Big Brother’s Axeing

In a stirring show of solidarity not seen since the cancellation of BBC1’s Eldorado in 1993, the nation’s unemployed and unemployable took to the streets of London today to protest against this week’s decision to axe Channel 4 summer schedule mainstay Big Brother.

Amidst ugly scenes in Trafalgar Square, grown men were seen to be openly weeping as they clashed with the hordes of riot police that had been put on duty to deal with escalating violence.

Daz, 24, from Bromley, said: “Some of the girls on that show are well fit.  Innit.” While Julie, 29, from Basildon, Essex, put her own plight into sharp perspective:

“What the f*ck am I going to watch all day now? I might actually have to go and look for a job, instead of just sitting here on my arse.”

Police Constable Basil Smythe was under instructions to control the protesters at Trafalgar Square and commentated:

“When things get as ugly as they did today, then we unfortunately have to put into place a zero-tolerance policy.

Having said that – I do sympathise.  Can you believe that they’ve cancelled Big Brother in the same year that Jade Goody died?  I mean – how insensitive.”

As the violence escalates, Davina McCall is nowhere to be seen.  Coincidence?
