Pissed Letter
While pissed I sent this to Gordon Brown.

And no I didnt get a response.

Gordon Brown MP,
10 Downing Street,
23rd March 2009

Dear Mr Brown,
I am writing to you after hearing that you praised Jade Goody as a “courageous woman” which is an incredible error of judgement on your part. Jade Goody was an overweight foul-mouthed illiterate racist who milked her disease for monetary gain and epitomised what is so bad about modern British society. She, and her publicist, cunningly exploited papers and television channels to extract the maximum revenue possible while ensuring her two little boys were forced to watch the death of their mother through the uncaring glare of the media.

Contrast this with Jane Tomlinson who when diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2000, raised almost £2m for cancer charities via competing in marathons, the Ironman Triathlon, and the Great North Run. She received threatening phone calls after becoming victim to a tabloid smear campaign, but ignored these and the pain of her treatment to cycle across the 4,000 miles across America and raising an additional £¼million in the process. Her son collected her posthumous CBE two months after her death.

As a taxpayer, and therefore your employer, I believe you should be working to remedy the dire mess you and your party has made of the economy through chronic mismanagement and not trying to pander to readers of OK! Magazine who have been brainwashed into believing Jade Goody was some sort of second coming. She was simply a pointless moron who shot to fame by being foul-mouthed, racist and considerably more unintelligent than the average Labour supporter, a feat that I am sure you will agree, is extremely difficult to achieve!

I trust that you will consider your public statements more clearly in future.

Yours sincerely,

J Harding

Stay sober
for whatever problems Jade had, they were born of stupidity and ignorance. Yours seem to be chosen.

Jade Goody was a fat, cretinous waste of space. She was that when she was alive, and even more so when she was dead. On the flip side - she had one thing to sell. One. She didn't have the option of writing a best-selling novel, inventing the next loaf-slicer, or curing AIDS - she could merely flog her life to anyone stupid enough to buy it. Which is what she did.

Courageous? Well... She couldn't spend the money herself. She didn't earn those final pounds for herself. They were for her kids - and as and when you have any (I know you don't, currently) - maybe you'll understand why she didn't just lie around, doing whatever the fuck she pleased, during the last days of her life. Maybe you'll understnd the imperative to provide for the future of your progeny, as best you can, in the time you have.

As for Jane Tomlinson - how much would she have earned, without actively courting publicity? You think that 2mil came from her gran? Or is it OK for her, because she gave the proceeds to charity rather than her kids? Why is she such a saint, in your mind, for doing *exactly the same thing Jade Goody did*, albeit for different recipients?

Jade was a thick cunt. She wasn't evil, just stupid. She is now dead. Time to stop whingeing about her, I'd have thought. I don't give a tuppeny fuck for any reality TV bullshit, but a posthumous witch-hunt is churlish. Give it up.

Jane Tomlinson
Mrs Kite raised a good point; wouldnt a mother wish to spend her last weeks/months with her family? Im not diminishing what she did; she raisedr way more for charity than I have/will.

The problem I had/have with Jade was that it was fake and cynical.

Whether she was racist or ignorant was almost irrelevant, but the fact it was so actively promoted by herself and Max Clifford was nauseating. She didn't do it for the money but to promote herself. She was addicted to being a "celebrity". A pseudo-important person.

The day in question I got pissed (watching football IIRC), something that I now rarely do, and must have seen the news with the lead item being Gordon Brown pays homage to her. I wrote the letter when I was pissed, printed it out, enveloped it and stamped it. I don't remember writing it, and only re-read it the following week slightly aghast.

In hindsight the letter was inappropriate, but everything I wrote was accurate and true. Gordon Brown's job was, and is, to run the country and sort out the financial mess he has created. It is not to offer fake sympathy to get himself headlines. That was also inappropriate and cynical.

Britain, or at least British media, seems to love talentless people. We are seeing it now with Cheryl Cole...or "the nations sweetheart". WTF?!

The QOTW is letters they'll never read. It fits in with that theme.

And yes........I can be a real arse when I am pissed.

I agree with all of this
but I'd note that the Goody phenomenon reflects more upon the country as a whole than it did on her. She made the best of the shitty hand life gave her, and I reckon most people would have done the same.

Please don't think I'm actually defending that vacuous waste of space. I'd sooner be fisted by Hellboy than spend a moment in her company.
