Personally I think it’s a pretty smart move. Think about it, millions of young adults watch these programmes. People who may not vote, or when they do, vote without giving it to much thought. Next time there’s an election in his constituency loads of young voters are going to think "no idea who these other guys are but I remember Galloway from Big Bro, he seemed alright", providing he makes a good impression. Plus you can say all you want about the man, but most will agree that he’s an excellent public speaker, so I think he's capable of winning over a few viewers. I bet a lot of radical or controversial politicians are wishing they’d thought of it first!

In the 70's, it was soap operas and game shows.

In the 80's, that slowly faded and was replaced with talk shows.

As the 80's evolved into the 90's, it was trash talk shows and 1st generation reality shows like cops and the People's Court.

Enter the 00's. Trash reality shows are the thing.

In the 10's, trash reality will evolve into war/peace tv.

TV quickly went from presenting America as a fake utopia to what you currently see.

This type of TV is just utter trash.

I for one do not watch it, but maybe, just this once, I might.

If only to see George Galloway giving Micheal Barrymore a good thump on the nose!
