In praise of Jade Goody

Now there's a phrase I bet you never thought you'd read in the "corrosive right-wing blogosphere". But let me say this:

  1. She took a shit hand dealt to her by life and made herself a millionaire by exploiting the celebrity system.
  2. She milked every drop she could with all her on camera near-death time ro make sure her kids were well provided for.
  3. It also looks like her tax planning was pretty canny.


Good on her. If you'll excuse the pun.

I know she could afford the very best makeup artists, etc., but I still can't believe she looked so good on her death bed. Call me cynical, but I wouldn't be amazed to find her pitch up alive and well again some day on a desert island.

Max Clifford is to fund a course at the University Of Billericay designed to train up a new generation of Jane Goodys. Most of the ragazines and grabloids have agreed to chip in.

I doubt she'll turn up alive on a treasure island. Or if she does, lets hope she's found banging Robert Maxwell there.

I did hear she signed an exclusive deal with Most Haunted though ;)

And at least Mr Tweedy has gone one better than the English Cricket team, he at least gets the ashes...

Obsidian, that is an odious closing remark and I am deeply ashamed of myself for smirking.

Reading some of the blogs, its a good job this evil bond villian bent on world destruction has gone, for all of our sakes. Its good to see someone has put it back into context.

At least the poor creature was given advice, sure there would have been plenty of fuckfaces like Winehouses crew who would have been trying to abuse her.

But, who give a monkeys fuck really?

I hear that Jade Goody's health and fitness video isn't selling too well.
