Why I couldn't work for the BBC

Good for Carol Thatcher! She's refused to apologise for making an allegedly racist remark according to a report by the Press Association.

What was her offence? Apparently she called a tennis player a "golliwog". Shock! Horror! The sensibilities of a few BBC-types on the The One Show have been offended and now she has been banned from working on the programme. Oh, well, it's their loss.

When I was in New Zealand last year, we bought a black-faced rag doll called, guess what? Yes, it was a golliwog!

When any one complains about another person breaking stupid PC rules it is never someone from the group the rule was designed to protect. In any case they can stand up for themselves. The BBC are a huge gang of brainwashed Labour Party propaganda trough snuffling parasites. I like Carol the Blodiewog and she's right to tell them to stick it up where the sun don't shine.
