Totally agreed, how stupid to sack him over such a small and genuine error!

I'm sure I heard somewhere before (don't know how long ago) that Jeremy Clarkson actually said that word, and he hasn't been sacked has he? :rolleyes:

Hence, why I refuse to listen to any BBC Radio stations.


It is disputable whether he did or not. I heard the recording and couldn't decide what he said.

But the offending (if it was) piece was never broadcast, it was one of several takes he did for something.

On the BBC radio stations I listen to (3,4,5, and world) they never use the the term 'nigger' unless it is in a discussion about that word - and the programme has warnings before the programme and before the item in case you, the listener, happens to be a delicate flower who wilts at such a dreadful sound.

Never forget the iron law of unintended consequences

The BBC took action after just one listener complained to say he was ‘horrified’ by what he heard.


So 1 person complained wonder if this person watch the dambusters which was on channel 5 a few weeks ago, and was shown unedited, and the word nigger wasn't censored, and it was said at least 8 times, now this guy must be furious at this

The BBC has been scared of complaints ever since the Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross debacle in 2008.

it's not just the beeb that's scared scott . the whole bloody population is scared to " offend " some fucking " minority " .
it's about time these idiot thought police dickheads grew up and developed a fucking sense of humour .
don't you agree ya fucking poofter ? ;) :d
