So Jim Davidson has apparently won Celebrity Big Brother and the nation is split. There are those who believe he is a racist, misogynistic wife-beater who should never have been allowed back on TV, others who see him as a changed man who should be given another chance and some, probably the majority of the CBB audience, who just see him as a middle-aged comedian.
A little known fact about me: I once spent an entire school year, Year Ten to be precise, sporting Martin Fowler from Eastenders' jacket (here's Martin's face when he first saw the offending item) The reason it's a little known fact is because I've done everything in my power since then to suppress it. But perhaps now is the time to finally face my coaty demons and then zip it for good.
As well as Candy Crush, nudie ladies and stalking, the internet also helps bewildering people talk authoratively about stuff they've just made up. I examine five of the internet's greatest conspiracy theories and finally attempts to answer the question that humankind has struggled with since time you can't remember.
G4S, the private security firm that sounds like a carving in a wood tree, has refused to class a riot in its Oakwood Prison as a 'riot', despite the fact that scenes one would normally associate with rioting were witnessed by prison officers such as upturned pool tables, random things being on fire and prisoners shouting 'This is a successful riot we're currently engaged in.'
I suppose I fit the criteria for a typical 'user' - I'm a single 20-something male, with no long-term relationships to my name, and I spend most nights alone in my room with my flatmate hurling abuse through my bedroom door that I'm 'using all the bandwidth', but I assure you that is because I'm writing and editing my sketches and radio-interviews, and not wasting the odd three hours perusing the darker side of the internet's super-highway. Honestly.
