TV PRESENTER Kirstie Allsopp has admitted she smashed her children’s iPads to teach them that capitalism is not the path of the spirit.
Allsopp, whose Channel 4 show with tantric sex guru Phil Spencer taught Britain to reject shallow materialism, confessed she was worried that her children were straying from the teachings of Buddha.
She continued: “As I always said in Location Location, worldly phenomena such as a five-bed in the Essex commuter belt with potential to add value via a loft conversion are merely a veil masking the eternal truth.
“The boys only had the iPads for the meditation apps, or so they’d told me, but I found them playing a game which not only celebrated violence but the ownership of territory which could no more belong to a man than to the lowliest potato bug.
“So I shattered the iPads, in doing so showing them that all material things are ephemeral and only the self is eternal. That’s just good parenting.
“Ultimately, I want the whole country to be so enlightened it has no possessions or money at all. That’s why I support the Tories.”
