It was bad enough when the bbc censored the swastika when it was first shown :lol:
but when it that edition was recently shown on bbc 4 they edited the song completely as they did with Gary Glitter - Leader of the Gang. What a sad time we live in. Everything has to be edited out of history for the PC brigade.

This is why the bbc is so crap now.


For Amy Buscombe, the BBC's commissioning editor for children's drama, there was a focus on character development that explored a range of themes, including mental health and sexuality.

"You can look at something from 10 years ago and realise we're much more aware of diversity in all kinds of forms now, and about representing everybody," Amy told the BBC.

Amy that is not your job. Your job is to see that the bbc deliver good programmes. When will they stop trying to force their political agenda and social justice issues on the watching public. The new Dr Who is beyond the joke ...

what the hell has happened to the moral standards of this country... just read about this gay headteacher who has has won a sex discrimination case against the primary school which sacked him for having sex with two 17-year-olds he met on the dating app Grindr. So it is now acceptable for a 42 year old primary headteacher to have sex with school kids, because that is exactly what they are. Maybe i am old fashioned but where the hell have our standards gone. seriously, i don't give a stuff about him being gay, but he has a responsibility with the job he holds. anyone in his position having sex with boys or girls that are 17 years old is not acceptable.

Fulham FC fan in California sues over 'racist' number plate row

A Fulham FC fan living in California is suing a state department after he was banned from having the letters COYW on a personalised car number plate, as officials feared the slogan "Come on you whites" had racist connotations.

Prof Kotler, who teaches media law at the University of Southern California, put in his application for the number plate last year and had to include the reasons for his choice of letters, but it was turned down.
The Department of Motor Vehicles said the COYW slogan could be considered hostile, insulting, or racially degrading, according to the US federal legal case.
:lol: just totally unbelievable

This is the state we are in now. You can't have advertising for an album because someone complains that they don't like a persons political views. What has that got to do with music. This is an attempt to try and hit a persons ability to promote his art because one person or more have complained, not about the art but his political opinion.

As I have been saying for a number of years now. This is an attempt to close down anyone that has the influence to reach vast numbers of people because they have an opinion that doesn't go along with the perceived wisdom. All this is an attempt to close down debate and independent thinking. It really is worrying times.

All is needs now is one person to complain and you can lose your job because of something you might post on social media. Just a simple thing, that someone finds offensive and you're dispensed with. That is the sad state that we're in now. This is another example of companies trying to be politically correct. People are being programmed by "society" to act a certain way. You can no longer joke about anything. Where does it end.

An Asda employee at its Dewsbury store has been sacked after he shared a controversial Billy Connolly post on social media.

He wrote: "Unfortunately, I have today been dismissed from Asda.

"Some of my colleagues took offence to the Billy Connelly, (sic), thoughts on religion, that I posted early May.
An Asda spokesman said: "We would never comment on individual circumstances.

"However we do not tolerate any form of discrimination from colleagues or customers and take such behaviour extremely seriously.”
