Cartoons not Basra?

#1
Did anyone see Kelvin Mackenzie on the BBC this morning saying that the British public wanted to see Tom and Jerry not Basra on the telly. After calming down and having run out of rude words to call Kelvin I thought actually Kelvin, and very very sadly, you are probably right that is what the public really want to see. Very sad to hear it put in those terms on the telly.

Maybe the BBC in their wisdom could give HM forces (as we are a minority group our own special OPs news Channel for those of us who care more about Herrick and Telic than we do about Tom and Jerry.

Rant out.

Not a chance. The Sevice community are the last minority it's legal and acceptable to discriminate against.
Sadly very true and we are also a minority that everyone has an opinion about and often a misinformed one at that.

Having done a bit of digging around I find that Mr Mackenzie is no stranger to the world of sh*tespeak, his list of shame goes back to Hillsborough when he managed to get his facts so wrong that the people of Liverpool virtually stopped buying "the Scum". I might of known that Kelvin was connected to THAT rag.

I presume that is the amended version of Tom and Jerry... 'Tominoski and Jerry'.

Jerry no longer lives in fear as she (just to keep the quotas up Jerry is now female) and her ever expanding number of illegitimate children have now been given a rather nice semi in suburbia.

Tominoski frequently invites Jerry round to discuss how he can avoid hurting her feelings. :roll:

Sorry Basra no contest really. :D

Perhaps a Basra version of Tom and Jerry may be in order, featuring insurgents being chased around the streets by British troops who fall foul of a series of cunning ruses using items such as ironing boards, mouse traps, anvils, hammers, spike the dog, roadside bombs and giant man-eating badgers. :roll:

Every now and again a large stereotypical black lady could batter us around the head with a broom.

Yes indeed! You are absolutely right Tom and Jerry is not very PC and far too violent, it needs a re write and it certainly needs to demonstrate more "SOCIAL INCLUSION" (whatever that means) if it is to be shown on the BBC.

More suggestions for "modern" Tom and Jerry on a postcard please.

I must admit, while in Basra I was of exactly the same opinion. I wanted a brief respite from it - although in my case it was The Simpsons on Sky One.

Though your idea is laudable for the aspect of social inclusion, I must take issue with the violence therein, and the suggestion that said ethnic lady is dominant in the regime being depicted. There is no such thing as a dominant person - we are all of equal value, and equally capable to wield a broom, but only for cleaning, which in and of itself is not a McJob, but an essential service to the community that is provided by a trained 'Hygiene Executive' who is of equal value as a person to those that are the employment empowerment providers. Equal stake-holding is whjat I'm talking about, though I;m not suggesting for one moment that your mental capacity is any less than mine, only that I may have not spoken eloquently enough for your social and verbal perception and comprehension.

Surely if you start introducing Hygiene Executives into the equation then brooms will no longer suffice. Where will it end, everyone out there will be wanting to be fully equipped!!!

The perfect solution Bat_Crab! The BBC presents "Tom and Jerry and the war on Terror" The kids will love it and the BBC will never have to worry about minority groups, licence fees or anything ever again! Hooray!

Interesting Bi ped, are you suggesting that Tom and Jerry should be tackling a variety of issues and not just the war on terror? I hear what you are saying about Equal Stake holding, no one should be portrayed as a victim or indeed a protagonist in the modern, socially inclusive environment that is "Tom and Jerry" Apart from Kelvin Mackensie that is who has been recently appointed by the BBC as the Devil.

And it would prtray us as the bad guys - ideal for the liberal meedja. I might offer it to Channel 4.

They are probably waiting for your call, if not stealing your ideas as we speak! Act now before channel 4 make another programme about HM forces bullying people and hurting them and being very nasty and not kind. And shouting too!

The man is obviously cracking up you should have heard him rant about the Scots last week. Why worry anyway, he works for the scum at the moment, though he may be trying to get the heave the way he is pissing people of. Who will he have a go at next week.
