"The More You Ignore Me" by Jo Brand tells the story of a girl named Alice and her unconventional family. It primarily focuses on her mother, Gina, who is obsessed with the weatherman on the local news and decides to climb naked onto the roof with Alice's pet guinea pig in her arms before she is swiftly whisked off to the local psychiatric hospital. Alice's father tries to give his daughter a relatively stable upbringing, which isn't easy given the circumstances, and given that he is also trying to deal (or not deal) with his in-laws, a bunch of reckless, lawless country bumpkins who offer very little help or sensible advice, preferring instead to remain in the pub or to use a shotgun to solve life's little problems. Meanwhile, Alice convinces herself that the only one who will ever understand her and save her from her life, is Morrissey from "The Smiths".
