    Merry Christmas

    "BBC Radio 1 will not play the original version of Christmas favourite Fairytale Of New York, in a bid to avoid offending listeners.

    The Pogues' gritty festive hit with Kirsty MacColl is a staple of playlists up and down the country, but in recent years it has been the focus of debate over its lyrics.

    The song includes the words "faggot" and "s.l.u.t" and BBC bosses are concerned that some younger listeners may be upset by the terms."


    i don't know where to start, what can you say ?

    The ban is only on Radio 1.

    Radio 2 can still play the original version.

    Radio 6 can play either version.


    That's cleared that one up

    It's even more bizarre then, will it not frighten the snowflakes if they hear it on Radio 2 or Radio 6 ?

    Apparently, the BBC don't seem to think that easily offended people listen to Radio 2. But they can't make their minds up about Radio 6 listeners.

    Perhaps Radio 1 should be given a "U" rating, Radio 2 a "18" and radio 6 a "PG"

    Perhaps they should shut the whole bloody circus down 59, maybe they will after the Bashir/Lady Di inquiry has finished with them.

    Wow - the BBC with morals

    The worlds gone mad , I can think of a lot more worthwhile stuff we could get the bbc to do to make the world a better place

    That wouldn’t be one of them.

    Hypocritical springs to mind.
