Why You Can’t Join a TV Cable Like This!

This would have to be one of the worst TV fly lead cables I’ve seen(recently anyway). Its in a hotel room where I’m staying at Airlie Beach on my honeymoon with my wife Jacqui. The cable has obviously been broken at some point then they’ve stripped it back, twisted the central conductors together and twisted the shield together. Surprisingly the TV works! Why can’t you just fix a TV cable in this way?
