Why can’t we all get along?

Jeremy Kyle presents the race relations game show that replaced The Price is Right in a shock move for ITV1

Teams captained by Germaine Greer and Salman Rushdie make amusing comments on topical news issues which have roots in race disputes.  The rounds include Brick Lane, war of the week,  the identity parade, and a final missing words round

After a successful introduction with teams including Ron Atkinson, Yasmin Alibai Brown, Mel Gibson, and Howard Jacobson the sensitive handling of Jeremy Kyle appeared to have brought resolution to the complex issues  of the Iraq occupation, and Israel-Palestine dispute through the use of his superlative abilities to stare and to shout.  Things started to go wrong with the surprise appearance of Rodney King in the identity parade and the show was axed after one broadcast following guest, Mel’s drunken outburst against Howard.

Plans to revive the show under the chairmanship of Joe Pasquale with teams captained by Kenny Lynch and Jimmy Tarbuck were ditched at an early stage as executive producers objected to the change of direction.

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
