Great to have the time again! And it's nice to see you're still here, batting for the sanity-loving majority!
Lizards eh? Don't get me started - it's always about lizards, fire, water...it's madness I tell you - madness!
Jim, yeah - Channel 4. Can be good when it tries. To understand Channel 4 you need to know a little about the history of British TV. The first channel was of course the BBC. Then came BBC2 in like the 60's I think. Then a third channel was allowed to broadcast, called ITV (Independant Television). And in the 1980's, a new TV Channel licence was offered - which the wonderfully orginally named Channel 4 won. And in the early 00's, a fifth terrestrial TV station was launched - called, amazingly enough Channel 5...oh the originality.
So we have 5 free-to-air basic TV stations, broadcasting on analogue. Channel 4 was supposed to be the 'alternative' but in a satellite driven TV market, the competition is fierce here in the UK, where like in the US, we have over 750 TV channels to choose from nowadays. So Channel 4 frequently sinks to gutter documentaries and cheap reality TV shows. And naturally, people like David Icke have found a natural home there. I should add that while we do have 750 or so TV stations over here now, BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 have a natural inbuilt advantage in that everyone's familiar with their output and they're the first 5 channels on the remote control of every household in the country. The BBC earns its place at the top of the pile with first rate news and current affairs coverage, and arguably the most informative website in the world http://www.bbc.co.uk (that's the 'British' version of the site - click on the 'world' version - at least as good!). But as for the other 3 channels, they're commercial pish-posh of the highest order and make FOX seemed well-balanced and thoroughly journalistic!
Oh before I forget - vote Obama or watch McCain get elected and eat your babies...don't say I didn't warn you. He's under the direction of the lizard people...
