"feckless, stupid and promiscuous"

Vicky Pollard - a fat, chain-smoking, single mother...

Viewers saw Vicky, with her "stereotypical body", as having the features of all working-class single mums, "feckless, stupid and promiscuous".
Not so apparently.
Little Britain does far more to promote racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism and classism than it does to satirise them - though it does do that from time to time.

Well, I never. I stand corrected - I had always thought that was what they were like.

Lighten up, its a comedy. And a damned good laugh.
