What a sad, sad world we live in

Big Brother wins the vote

More young Brits have voted in reality TV shows than are likely to vote at the next general election, according to a survey.

The YouGov survey for the Daily Telegraph found fewer than 42% of first-time voters think they will vote in the election.

Yet 46% said they had already voted for contestants in shows such as Big Brother and Pop Idol.

The 18- to 22-year-olds, who make up nearly a 10th of the electorate, seemed to have little interest in party politics.

More than half claim not to know what a "constituency" is and nearly half said they had no idea who would make the best prime minister.

Homerisms(41) = "Lord, I know I shouldn't eat Thee, but ... (munch munch munch) mmm ... sacrelicious."
