Perhaps those of us loudly expressing our indignation are in danger of
playing right into the marketing people's hands? Just a thought.
I think you have a point there. There must be more of a reason for situating
that exquisite and fine 'Big Brother' logo painting next to that tatty horse
that does't even look like a horse.
Personally I think the logo would be better painted in black on the
Millenium Dome and that might encourage people to visit this lesser known
site even though perhaps a few years too late.
