I would imagine that if David's fellow television presenters went round reinforcing that stereotype by talking about television 'being populated by blondes who totter around doing nothing', as he described those in my profession, it would be all the more difficult.
I won't be taking his comments to heart too much, though - in the words of Dolly Parton: 'I know I'm not dumb. I also know I'm not blonde.' I imagine Dr Bull can relate to this on both counts.
