Have you heard of Love Island? I hadn’t until today but, apparently 4 times as many people apply to take part in it than apply to go to Oxbridge (Oxford or Cambridge Universities). Why? Well, this is just my opinion you understand, because the former offers the chance of instant ‘fame’ and oodles of cash and the latter requires a lot of hard work and effort.
Have we lost our grip on reality to such an extent that we actually believe we know these rich and famous people that appear on stage and screen and therefore feel justified in scrutinizing their every word and gesture? No, even that doesn’t add up because we don’t do that to the people we do actually know.
