I misread the title of this and was thiking that it referred to Paxton (Crystal Palace) - not Paxo-the-sneering.
interestingly Jeremy Paxman himself is concerned with what is happening to Britain, and what it means.
the difficulty is that the snap-shot multi-imaging from many locations gives the illusion of being fed facts about a wide variety of locations, while taking your concentration off your own surroundings.
when combined with the current UK/US trend of denying common sense, a sense of fairness, a sense of justice and mutual respect, the result is a muddling of the individual's ability to assess and understand what they see and are told.
therefore the "news" has to shout loudly and say that there is no need to worry about where you are - everything is wonderful.
it is exactly like the brilliant 60's cult TV series "The Prisoner". He was imprisoned in "the village" where everybody was happy, except him because he admitted to being a prisoner, whereas the others denied it. Architecturally ? It was set in Portmeirion. Now what on earth does that tell us ?
