And so you open Pandora’s box to find the seedy ingredients of British populism. It’s not just names, or performers and acts, it’s an ethos. Why is British light entertainment so often based on the sexualisation of people too young to cope? And why is it that we have a press so keen to feed off it?
Andrew O'Hagan looks beyond the Jimmy Savile scandal to see what else it reflects about the culture of British "light entertainment." And the Daily Mail does its small part to clean up its act. [Previously. Advisory: disturbing and unpleasant content.]
