future is now

Stuart Jeffries in the Guardian spots the irony in the UK release of the summer's biggest blockbuster for kids,

'WALL-E is about a robot who has spent the past 700 years cleaning up an Earth that has long been rendered uninhabitable thanks to our wasteful lifestyles. Meanwhile our descendants - possibly because they never watched EcoBeebies - live aboard a space cruise ship on hovering chairs sucking down their meals through straws, becoming so fat they can hardly move, while constantly watching telly. That, the film implicitly warns its child audience, could be your future unless you shape up.'
