    OT Fairytale of New York

    So the BBC are not going to play the original version on the radio for fear of upsetting the woke sensitivities of the snowflake generation.

    I despair. Kirsty will be rolling over in her watery grave

    Not playing it at all would be preferable!

    Actually its only radio 1 who are censoring it, supposedly because of the younger listeners. Radio 2 will play the unexpurgated version if it really bothers you.

    The woke snowflake generation is a right wing media concoction to pander to people who don't realise society's attitudes and norms change.

    Adi has it right itís a shock awful song

    The genie is well and truly out of the bottle though with millions of uncensored versions in circulation, another example of BBC pandering to a bunch of wokers

    Really? It’s my favourite Christmas song! Poetry really.

    Presume objections are being made to the words ‘faggot’ and ‘****’...weird to me, but Swale seems to have given it a more accurate perspective.

    Lol...amazing, the forum does the same thing...only more selectively...’faggot’ = approved...’sl*t’...apparently not!

    It may be a media title for that changed generation for sure, but the existence of the expression means precisely that people clearly do realise attitudes and norms are changing. if they werent changing, then there would be no need for the (potentially disparaging) expression for the generation

    I think heís got it totally wrong, the hurt feelings of the over sensitive minority amplified by a media looking to justify their existence.
