THE people of Ethiopia have unanimously voted for an immediate ban on camera crews and celebrities filming them for charitable means.
Viktor Lamadu, spokesperson for EALHAC (Ethopia Against Lenny Henry And Cameras), said today; "We have had this bullshit for nearly 30 years. Every time they turn up, we have to act sad and pretend to live in squalor. The walk around and point camera at us and ask people in Britain for money. It stops now."
Ethiopia has been portrayed as a famine stricken country since Bob Geldof, Lenny Henry and Richard Curtis decided to exploit it for their own gain. In reality, Ethiopia is a normal, suburban country with an array of professions and culture.
Betty Simone, a housewife 35, said: "The cameras they bring to our neighbourhoods are very poor. I am particularly dissappointed with the Panasonic range of broadcast cameras. We live in an age of HD and yet the BBC in particular are still using hi8 style cameras. So we have decided enough is enough and they are no longer welcome...what is a Lenny Henry anyway?"
