It seems that kids have been known to watch East-Enders rather than do their homework. Turning up at school tomorrow without your homework is bad enough, but turning up without being able to talk with your friends about what happened at The Vic last night - too much!Some writers in literary theory are beginning to suggest that we all need the sort of gossip that occurs in and around Albert Square. Our kids might be right - living without gossip is living dangerously. The argument goes like this: gossip is about 'what's going on', 'who did what to whom', 'what she did about it', 'what went wrong', 'how they are going to get themselves out the mess' - and, of course, 'what I would do now, if I were her'.
