I would be inclined to agree, the so-called misery slot is a well known part of the LLS a this stage.

Fair enough, but i'd rather see them on the late Late rather than ending up in a Daily Mail tragedy article or on the Saturday Night show.

I shed a few tears while watching that. Especially when the poem was being read out. Gutting stuff.

Most youngsters don't give a fuck what anyone says.

Hopefully it's a craze that will die off in a week or two.

Do you think this is the only medium that has raised the issue?
So far this week most of the print media, radio media, current affairs tv media, students councils, various websites aimed at young persons welfare have been raising awareness of this issue. The LLS is only one part of one medium to do so.
