    Sorry, sorry. That was for the commemorative box-set including a football replica shirt signed by Craig Meehan, and a "glamour" shot signed by Karen Matthews ;)

    Give the 3 adults in this awful tale as much stick as you want, they deserve everything that's coming to them but leave the kids out of it. They are just innocents caught up in the whole sorry tale. Their little world has been torn apart.

    Personally I think the adults in this get what they deserve - but the children especially Shannon have been through enough. This public humiliation is imho in very poor taste and offensive. She needs to be allowed to get on with her life and try to rebuild it into something more positive - not be faced with seeing things like this pop up on computer screens.

    The people who devlop such things need to get a reality check.

    Been thinking about this and whilst it did make me laugh, that laugh was at the expense of another and I therefore take your point Pammy - will remove thanks :eek:

    Fair comment, I think the main point was laughing at that muppet mother, rather than the daughter. It would have been better if she wasn't featured, really.

    I think this is from Viz, and in poor taste. But the general theme of poking fun at the utter tat you find advertised in the Mail et al is good...

    Count me in for removing it.
    Whilst there is a funny side to the adult subjects having the p*ss taken out of them, the juvenile should not be involved in the ridicule. As others have said, this child really has been through enough and whilst she may never see the post I believe it is morally wrong. She has to find a new life after being displaced, has no longer any parents and can probably trust no one anymore. For those with children, just think how your kids would feel if you disappeared.
    Not being holier than thou or anything but it is in bad taste.
    Time to remove it methinks.
