Why oh why do people keep bending their will to accomodate the pathetic arseholes


BBC Radio 1 will play an edited version of Christmas favourite Fairytale Of New York in a bid to avoid offending listeners.

The Pogues' gritty festive hit with Kirsty MacColl is a Christmas staple, though in recent years it has been the focus of debate over its lyrics.

The song includes the words "faggot" and "slut".

This year, Radio 1 will play an alternative version of the track, with the record label providing different lyrics sung by MacColl.

It is understood Radio 1 bosses were wary of offending younger listeners with derogatory terms for gender and sexuality.

None of this surprises me one jot. Yet again, we are bending over to accommodate the limp-wristed pansies and who’s at the centre of it? The BB f’ing C.

The original version of the song is still going to be played on Radio 2 I believe.
But all the same its time to pull the plug on the BBC....Its nothing more than
a bureaucratic lefty woke P.R Channel and should be not funded by the taxpayer.
They show nothing that I wish to watch or listen to.
In fact being a white middle aged British male I am at the absolute bottom of their target
audience list.

BBC owns Radio two & most of local stations.

The whole country needs to grow a backbone imo, I am absolutely sick to death if the place being ruled by gutless faggots who pander to snowflakes

Everything this country stood for & everything out forefathers fought for is being eroded to the point that I no longer recognize the place I was born, even as little as 30 years ago a lot of people still seemed to have some guts & enough will to stand up for their beliefs, now its bend over & thank you very much sir :mad:

On the positive side, the longer the BBC continue with this crap the sooner they get the boot.

'Absolute classic rock' radio bleep out all offensive expletives, swearing etc...
Very sad when you're listening to a favourite track.
Strangely 'Planet rock' radio are the exact opposite.

Where does the West Country sauce come into it? Faggots originate in South Wales & West Midlands.
