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.
