Have you ever watched the TV programme called Would I Lie To you? It’s a comedy panel show hosted by Rob Brydon where two teams of contestants led by regulars, David Mitchell and Lee Mack, have to bluff about their deepest secrets. Points are awarded to the teams you correctly guess whether the “secrets” told by contestants are true or a lie. In other words, contestants have to be good at telling lies and good at covering up the truth!
While I do find some of the “secrets” told on the show and the ridiculous stories the contestants tell, quick funny at times, there’s something about that programme which just doesn’t sit right with me.
Is it just me?
I think it’s just because it’s giving the impression that telling lies fun…Not that fun isn’t good, but are we really give out the right message to people?
In a world where lies seem to common place to so many, let’s promote honesty and integrity and not lies!
