What it was about
16 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In general there small people where ghettoised and the main protagonist insisted that he wasn't a "small" because when they shifted from Imperial to Metric, he no longer made the cut. This was the point where any comparison to a real discriminatory situation ended. An arbitrary decision could alter the line. Like being a "bit" gay or a "bit" black or a "bit" Muslim. Didn't quite make sense. I'm sure the idea was to make the view feel like they could easily be discriminated against but it didn't quite make it. It was supposed to be a bit more cutting than it actually was but then I was only 11 so what did I know.

I particularly remember the theme.

They're the lowest of the low. They refuse to grow you know. They like it down there.
