  • Maybe if all the z list celebrities donated a week's wages, all the money needed would be raise straight away, and we would all be spared the usual tired sad televised begging, by millionaire TV celebs, trying to shame viewers to donate £2.00 to buy someone a goat in Burkina Faso.

  • Would have voted but there is no option of "avoiding at every opportunity the circus of obscenely paid tv and sports celebrities (ahem) pontificating on the screen about the virtues of charity which has become the biennial TV fundraising marathon that is Comic Relief."
