    Jeremy Kyle is the most popular daytime show on ITV, but it’s just been suspended and the ITV people are wondering whether it should be allowed to continue.

    They have got into deep trouble by bringing a mature engaged couple on for a lie detector test on an alleged infidelity. They’d been engaged for over a year, and the guy failed his lie detector test. The woman, heart-broken, broke off the engagement and said she’s never see him again. The man spent the next week begging her to relent, but she said it was over and she didn’t want to see or hear from him again. He then took an overdose of tablets and died. He was a depressive, and it may have been suicide, or it may have been an accidental overdose. The aftercare service of the show is supposed to be excellent, but apparently they don’t employ mental health workers.

    However, the fact is that the show is very suspect for its tactics.people are paraded in front of an audience who then laugh at the total fools they make of themselves as they scream at one another and sometimes try to deck one another. It’s real fun to watch, but total misery to take part in. Like some sort of 19th century tour around Bedlam.

    Should the show be banned? If it’s radically reformed, it will lose its ‘fun’ value, but if not…

    Why ban the chavs from Bristol?

    I think they should spice it up by encouraging full contact tantrums

    Never one for censorship.

    Septic – I know ya bored but really.

    Thank god we have Dr Geoff our resident expert on mental health to educate us why this man took his own life.

    The aftercare service of the show is supposed to be excellent, but apparently they don’t employ mental health workers.

    So the aftercare was actually non-existent, and of course it is totally irrelevant why the shows producers are now resorting to targetting vulnerable mental health users like Steve Dymond, who is such a nobody Dr Geoff didn’t feel naming him would be of any value.

    In 50 years time this tripe will be recognized for what it really is. The systematic demonisation and further marginalisation of the underclass and poor working class by the liberal elite, over the past 30 + years. The same class(es) that have been constantly derided and mocked after Brexit as stupid and ignorant and that are constantly portrayed as adding no value to our society and therefore no stake.

    The first time I caught a snippet of JK I honestly thought it was a wind up. It was some story about whether this lads girlfriend was actually his sister.

    I saw one on DNA results and it was absolutely beautiful.

     

    It’s easy to mock the people that go on these shows from the comfort of our sofas but I’ve seen this show change people’s lives. Addicts, people that have been discarded and abused. It has had a positive effect on some.

    As for Mr Dymond, IF he had mental health issues, IF he committed suicide…

    My heart goes out to him, his loved ones. I’m not sure the show can really be blamed though.

    What goes on behind the scenes.

    The show clearly targets a certain demographic, one that is vulnerable to manipulation. In an official setting most of them would need safeguards, like an appropriate adult when being interviewed by police for example. It also raises the issue of how much of an informed decision are they making when they sign up. Before they are subjected to the unethical processes that happen in the making of the show and as a judge stated over a decade ago in 2007 “This type of incident is exactly what the producers want,” said the judge, who described the programme as “a form of human bear-baiting… under the guise of entertainment”, and “a morbid and depressing display of dysfunctional people… for the purposes of titillating bored members of the public”.

     

     

    Of course if it was aimed at Jews, or other minority groups, it would have been taken off air after the very first programme. Trashing a white underclass for decades has become perfectly acceptable and is now considered the norm in large parts of society. Just like Jim Davidson was the norm in the late 70s and 80s.

    While there have been guests that have had positive experiences, and it has changed people’s lives, it is essentially a show that turns the misery, vulnerability and desperation of people’s lives into “entertainment”

    It’s not even a feel good show where people have overcome adversity. It just shines the spotlight on people that are exploited, riled up and humiliated, all for us to enjoy.

    What happened to compassion? Are we all so self centred we ridicule those worse off than we are? And actually flock to watch it?
