So Katie price is to Edit the today programme on Radio 4. Judging by the who-Ha around this decision I think it would be fair to say that popular opinion is that she is not up to the Job. My question today then is, Are the opinions and Views of the common man not Valid? Now I am not a big fan Of Jordan AKA Katie price and to be honest I don't think I have ever intentionally listened to the Today programme and my first thought was "God No!" But then I had a rethink.
I have a reputation among my family and friends, it would seem, of being a very scary Woman and on the other hand being a bit of a goody goody? I think what they are saying about me is that I am a woman with strong opinions who is not afraid to voice them, but maybe I am kidding myself? How would I describe my self? Fair I think and I try to consider why people behave the way they do and how I would behave in their situation, but with little patience for apathy. So back to Katie Price. My first instinct is why would anybody be interested in listening to anything she has to say, I don't think I have ever heard or read anything by her that wasn't Vapid and self serving, is there anybody currently in the public eye that is more me,me,me than her? Katy is undoubtedly clever she has built herself a business empire worth millions with no other talent barr having surgically enhanced ,Very large breasts and I would be surprised if there was anyone in the country that is unaware of her. So why would radio 4 choose such a talentless artificial woman as a guest editor? well maybe they have been cleverer than we think and my only hope is that Jordan is up to the challenge, for the sake of the hoards of teenage Young women that look at her and think that all they need to get on in the world is to be sexy I hope she is! Maybe behind all the self promotion there is a real woman with opinions of her own and if I understand this editing business correctly, by taking away her voice and Making her choose others to represent what she considers appointment we may get a peep at the real Katy Price. We are all so quick to judge and constantly dismiss others values that maybe we don't give enough of a voice to others, That strange woman on the bus who always wants to strike up a conversation, The bloke in the park that sits on the bench next to you, the teenager that seems all swear words and swagger..........I must try to listen they too may be living a very interesting life. Well I guess me and mine would say I had my goody head on today, maybe, they shouldn't be so quick to judge they don't know what I am really thinking.
