Tele­vi­sion in all of its gory charm

The Herald - - OPINION -

I EN­JOY Thelma Ed­wards’s con­tri­bu­tions to the Let­ters Pages but I am aghast at her sug­ges­tion to put the TV in the bin (Let­ters, Jan­uary 11).

With nightly of­fer­ings of ir­rel­e­vant culi­nary ex­ploits, quizzes, re­hashed news and their weather re­ports, puerile sit­coms, canned laugh­ter, and re­peats, re­peats, re­peats, what’s not to like about switch­ing off with a wee splat­ter­ing of vi­o­lence, sex, nu­dity and bad lan­guage after a dre­ich win­ter’s day?

I AM shocked by the sug­ges­tion of Thelma Ed­wards that your colum­nist Rose­mary Gor­ing should put her TV in the bin. Surely any un­wanted elec­tri­cal equip­ment should be dis­posed of re­spon­si­bly in ac­cor­dance with the Waste Elec­tri­cal and Elec­tronic Equip­ment (WEEE) Di­rec­tive?
