  1. christ. i know the star is a shit newspaper, but entirely fabricating a story and pulling quotes out of thin air? that’s pretty terrible journalism right there. usually they just exaggerate and distort the truth rather than completely making something up.

  2. For what it’s worth, I consider Little Britain offensively shit. Does that count?

  3. Express Newspapers make stuff up? Now, that IS news. Not.

  4. little britain shit? You’re being generous. It’s the most gratuitous, offensive load of bile I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen better comedy from fat dead northern comedians

  5. Well, Matt, it’s quite simple. After watching it once I stopped watching it. That didn’t stop the program from being aired. As far as I’m concerned, it fed all the stereotypes that not only us but other minorities fight against. You name me one person who has actually said, “Wow, I didn’t realise things were like that for such and such a minority before it watched it.”

    Not quite as simple as you make out. And as far as I’m concerned, this talentless duo have earned their fame and their money at our expense. I’d like to know what they intend to do with this unearned financial award from the courts, pocket it or give it to the many needy LGBT charities that need it far more than them.

  6. What’s all this negative stuff. These guys are FUNNY. There’s nothing “American” to compare it with. They edge on the offensive for just that reason! Yeah, if you don’t like it, don’t watch it! DUH!
    I’ve bought 3 DVD sets of the British seasons to give out as gifts.
    They are funny. It’s the gay aspect that many righteous righties can’t digest. Well TFB!
    David & Matt, we love you in California.

    Little Britain USED to be funny. However the joke has worn out – now it is just dull and repetitive. Little Britain USA was a waste of time and money. They need to move on.

    Simon you hit the nail on the head, the first couple of shows were funny, but when you get the same skit shown week after week it no longer is funny.Somebody must like it though since it has made them both millions !
