Greer walks out of ‘bullying’ Big Brother

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Greer walks out of ‘bullying’ Big Brother (Guardian)

This is the first time I’ve respected someone for walking out of Big Brother. Prof Greer probably expected a media bashing for walking out, but to walk out because of a firmly held principle (rather than because “I’m bored”) is something I personally respect. Especially since she did it with such decisiveness, and minimum fuss.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Go Germaine!
