So Chris Moyles‘ last Radio show this morning, sadly there will people who are very happy about that. I say sadly because I find it disappointing that in 2012 we still have people in this country ( the world even) with such a great capacity to hate. Now if you are not from Great Britain you may be thinking oh my lord who’eth be this Christopher Moyles? Forsooth he has not been heralded in our own fair land?
He is a radio presenter/ DJ from the north of England who has worked on the Radio 1 Breakfast show since 2004 with an audience of around eight million. I am not going to list all his achievements, but the show has raised over ten million pounds for Children in Need, culminating in Chris going up Mount Kilimanjaro two years ago for the same charity. You could say, ‘So what?’
My point is; some people hate him, my concern and disappointment is; why hate him? Why in this country are there so many people who love to see a decent person who has a talent, fail? Yes, I am including you, the hate inducing news papers of this once fair land. Well I say ‘fair’ but I’m not sure when that was? I was told once that King Richard the Lionheart slaughtered more Jews per capita than Hitler when he crossed Europe to go to the Crusades? Any historians out there verify that?Anyway I digress, When the Spice Girls were at the height of their career they were
the biggest export this country had, people hated them. Why? They were five
young girls making money and having a laugh.
I don’t like One Direction, not my taste, so I don’t listen to them. I respect them though, they are a talented bunch of kids, enjoying themselves making music and money.
In America they seem to applaud success they treat successful people with the respect they deserve. It’s time we learned respect in this country and realised it’s called Great Britain. Ok, I know the Great bit comes from going around the world kicking the s*** out of everything that got in our way, but it’s time to move on. I was hoping after the Olympics we would see some change but the slatings I have seen Chris Moyles getting today on his last day is quite disgusting. Rant Over, I thankyou, XXX
