He's always been a saint in my eyes, George. He typifies all things good about Australia. That dress sense is bang on.  ;D

Met him and his other half Dame Edna Gibbo, liked her did not like him, no personality at all as a male.
Beautiful things happen in your life when you distance yourself from all the negativity and drama around you.

Barry is actually a pretty boring person in  his own persona. Can never understand his popularity.

As some of you know already I love my soaps on tv, but sadly, the storylines have started to get rather nasty these days and it saddens me to say that I fear I shall be turning over in the future.
Coronation Street Last night we saw a Vicar taking hard drugs in the church with his druggie brother, Bethany a young 18 years old who has already been groomed by a Paedophile group of men, this storyline went on for approx 10 weeks, going back to a club which can only be described as a Brothel to work, finally finishing off with her glassing a man in the face and her being arrested.  Now, what does that say to our children, all of this was before the 9 pm watershed?

Eastenders We have a male walking around Walford threatening and blackmailing the hardest men in the square and they are letting get away with it, but again this is only saying to the youths today "look you could do this it is so easy" Once again to pump up the storyline drugs are being used in the Queen Vics loo and young people are being very disorderly in the bar area scaring the regulars away.

I must sound a sad person who watches soaps but I am no way a saddie I just enjoy light entertainment but this week the soaps seem to be trying their hardest to shock viewers and see how far they can go. I don't watch Emmerdale but I bet a similar thing is happening there as well because they all seem to follow each other.
Dottie,
I never watch them. However my wife has followed ‘Doctors’, on BBC I think, but is giving up on it because she says the storylines would be more suitable for after 9pm than lunchtime and that is very much what you are saying about other such programmes.
