Last night we saw Piers Morgan interviewing Gordon Brown with the most personal details of his life dragged out onto the screen. Mr. Brown, a serving Prime Minister, was asked a series of completely non-political related questions (although this was clearly a pre - election stunt) including whether he had joined the Mile High Club, about his childhood and about his children.
It is my opinion it is so sad when politics is dragged into this sort of low, a low which is suitable for Z-list celebrities rather than the holder of the position of the Queen's First Minister.
What will we see next. How the Tories will choose their next leader by sending him through Big Brother? Or how about the Lib Dems going through "I'm a Celebrity get me Out of Here"?
If we continue to trivialise politics in such a way then it is simply going to lead to more and more of the electorate being turned off politics and with that fewer and fewer people voting.
