So, like any other day, I got up, had a shower and had BBC Breakfast on in the background. Like any other day, the most important stories in the world were deemed to centre around whether or not it would rain (Glastonbury and Wimbledon – apparently it won’t!!), and how British people can no longer afford to put petrol in their cars (try not opening the windows on your car – it creates drag). Bill Turnbull, was as usual, on strikingly bad form.
Unlike any other day however, Sian Lloyd wheeled out two plastic baby dolls… with Downs Syndrome. Now, no one even wants a real Downs Syndrome baby. Fact. So why would anyone pay money for a fake one? And then give it to their kids to play with?
Whoever had the idea of making these dolls should really have run it past a focus group first, or even tried it out on Dragon’s Den. I can see Duncan Bannatyne really shooting the whole concept to pieces in about 10 seconds flat.
