Keeping in touch with my MP...
Looks like Big Brother isn't just watching you George, he may well be stopping your 'views' being aired as much as you'd like. The Guardian yesterday reported that Channel 4 may be preventing him using the show as a political soapbox, which was his very reason for going in in the first place!
A Channel 4 spokesperson said "He won't be able to use his time in the house as a political soapbox. There are regulations and Ofcom rulings which mean we would monitor what is said by him and the others. He is one of 11 diverse and entertaining individuals in that house, so he's one of many with different opinions." Entertaining? Well, I won't quibble that one now, but instead just congratulate C4. I'm not usually much on favour of censorship, but in this case, spot on!
