BBC Humour Police make first ruling

#2
In its first ruling since announcing a crackdown on cruel and humliating comedy, the BBC Trust said there was no justification for making such a remark about Miss Adlington's appearance. It ruled that the comment was both "humiliating" and "offensive".
Well there's no point in bloody watching, now!

Arrse-biscuits.

Worrying stuff indeed. On a lighter note, considering it's a serious article in a respected newspaper, you would have thought that to lead with the actual joke would be slightly misguided

BBC satirical show Mock The Week is in trouble for joking that Olympic swimming champion Rebecca Adlington resembled "someone who's looking at themselves in the back of a spoon".

Now, I couldn't take the rest of the story seriously after reading that, especially as directly below it is a picture of her looking like a reflection on the back of a spoon.

Oh are we supposed to be outraged and offended from 200miles away at the other end of The TV screen...

We have become a society that panders (Sp?) to the needs of the pathetic and the weak... Whatever happened to The Man on the Clapham omnibus who was of reasonable firmness.

Personally, me, myself, I, found the joke to be hilarious. The PC monkeys at BBC Trust have upheld the complaint, says it all really.

However, I would like Rebecca to get her own back so it would have been funny if she had been allowed to walk on to the next show FB was on and stick a custard pie in his face, without him being pre-warned. Now that would have been great TV. :D

How long before the Liebour Thought Crime Stazi start despatching you lot round to arrest the offenders?

He's been arrested ...... but the evidence wouldn't stand up in court!

What the socialist lesbian monkey huggers fail to realise is that it is actually a very clever way of describign how she does actually look - so essentially telling the truth.

Banning people from saying this is like banning people from saying "Gordon Brown is a fcuking useless PM"


edited to say, after a couple of Stella's I'd probably still do her...

Did he mean her face or the rest of her bod? .

I think she would be up there in the

She'd get it posts




Not sure about that? She has a peculiar Dr Evil look about her, any pics of her in swimming cap just to be sure?

Of course she'd get it.
