British Broadcasting Corporation broadcasting 'chickens' these days?

#1







Chickens? What chickens? Chicken is already plural!


Shame on BBC.


I was one of them who would always swear by BBC, as one of the best news agencies in the world. I have been noticing similar errors in the past couple of years. I believe ARRSE is the right place to highlight this slide in standards. If anyone has connections in BBC, please remind them, that if not anyone else, BBC must uphold the English language.

I hope we don'lt go the same way, there's no room in my garden for chickens, not whilst it is full of silly different coloured bins!

It's only a matter of time before the local kids work out they have near enough to play snooker on a bin day.

What Arrse really needs is a PR tsar; someone with deep connections with meeja luvvies, who can act as our representative and forcibly express the wishes of the Arrse-massive to those organs that influence the World outside.




Any volunteers?

I like your quote:
...For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
In the movie, K-19: The Widowmaker, Harrison Ford as Alexi Vostrikov, the Captain of a Soviet submarine, tells his sailors, "Without me, you are nothing. Without you, I am nothing!"

No, it really doesn't bother me how people react. The fact remains that the error is genuine and I believe you all have seen it.

@Auld-Yin, it is 'him.'

I have no connections with BBC. I can but only highlight this at a British forum. It is up to you people to take it from here.

Don't get me fucking started, I'm incandescent with rage over "SportS" it's sport, SPORT, FUCKING SPORT!
You have a sport correspondent, unless your some low IQ, whooping fat American?

Fucking cunts!

I agree.

Let's just all stop with the bantam and get back to the subject.

Not sure how much influence you think 'us people' have got................
Well, I think, you people, at least those who are physically in UK, have a greater chance than a person sitting in North Carolina.

I still swear by the Oxford Dictionary, but then, I don't know when that will disappoint me.

Sir, in the US, there are educated and well groomed men and women as well as plebs, and I am sure there are educated and well groomed men and women in Britain as well as plebs.

My intention was not to insult anyone, or start off a trans-Atlantic exchange of expletives, but to highlight the need to preserve the integrity of the English language. The US does not do a very good job in this regard. My presence in North Carolina cannot have any impact on the error(s) in the BBC website, so the US does not really come into picture, in my humble opinion. I am just the messenger, and the message has been delivered. That's all.

Pardon me if this offends anyone.
