Voting scandals: Then and Now

Major and Currie: saucy Saturday night routines

Controversy rages over political correspondent John Sergeant's continued survival in the BBC's hit Saturday evening show, "Strictly Come Dancing".

Despite being consistently panned by the judges, the rotund reporter has been taken to the hearts of the Great British Public who continue to vote for him at the expense of more talented performers such as Cherie Lunghi, Heather Small, and Phil Daniels. (OK, well maybe not Phil Daniels)

But Spraying the Rays' Beer and Ballroom correspondent Stray Photon asks:

"Have we learned nothing?"

Sixteen years ago it was another militarisitically surnamed John with political connections who caused an upset when frumpy John Major was voted for by the British Public as Prime Minister despite the fact that rival Neil Kinnock was a better dancer.

Sergeant and Rihanoff: political scandal

Kinnock also had better policies.

But still the public voted for Major. Maybe they wanted to see more of his glamorous "dance" partner Edwina Currie.

Oh yes.

Here at Photon House however, we say, "What's the big deal?"

After all Sergeant isn't the only newcomer who is making himself unwelcome this season by remaining in contention much longer than anyone expected...

Next week: Stray Photon manages to post an entire blog entry without mentioning that Hull City are in the Premier League...oh bollocks, that's not going to happen, is it?
