Feline viewing motivates life

Judging by the quality of programmes currently broadcast, one can be forgiven for thinking TV producers have inadvertently based their programme selections on feline viewing data. Sat on my viewing couch over the past few months I too have found myself shrieking, hissing and arching my back before fleeing the room, much to the disgust of my square-eyed canine friend. Perhaps I should buy a gerbil, a hamster and a goldfish to extract real value from my TV licence.

Thank you Iain Murray, your article has finally given me the courage to throw out my velcro-knickers, liberate myself from my couch and TV and to get a life. I am now ready to build my dream house, landscape my garden and spend my weekends redecorating my friends’ rooms, after I get back from my solo-around-the-world skateboard tour (terrestrial and satellite networks are currently bidding for the rights)… Who needs TV!
