How To Board A Train In Burma

THIS video is dedicated to all the staff on South West trains who go out of their way to make the passenger dashing for the train miss it by asking him for a ticket, telling him that without a ticket he needs to find the guard on the train and taking so long to view the ticket that the doors on the train lock and one minute later it slides gently out of the station..

SEE if you can join the dots. Andy Gray is sacked from Sky Sports for making sexist comments.

British Humour In Crisis: Japan Bans Fry And Mexico Hates Top Gear

TOP Gear front man Jeremy Clarkson and his sidekicks have fallen foul of Mexico. The country’s ambassador Eduardo Medina-Mora has made a complaint to the BBC about comments made by Richard Hammond in his latest attempt to brown nose Clarkson:

In the show, during a discussion about a sports car made by Mexican firm Mastretta, presenter Richard Hammond said vehicles reflected national characteristics.

“Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat,” he said.

He forgot to mention the cocaine and the flu. But he did add:

“These offensive, xenophobic and humiliating remarks only serve to reinforce negative stereotypes and perpetuate prejudice against Mexico and its people.”

The BBC says the joke “may appear offensive to those who have not watched the programme or who are unfamiliar with its humour“.

Amanda Knox: Photos From The TV Film Of Meredith Kercher’s Murder

THE death of Meredith Kercher has been televised. The film is called Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy. No, it’s not called Knox On Trial For Murder. It’s not The Meredith Kercher Story – the victim just wasn’t considered blonde enough to capture the imagination of the TV-viewing public. It’s a title that puts Italy on trial, suggests Knox is innocent and appeals to armchair detectives to fathom out the case.

In the film, you can see Amanda Fernando Stevens (Meredith) being attacked by three actors playing the trio convicted of her murder. Hayden Panettiere (Amanda Knox), Raffaele Sollecito (Paolo Romio) and Rudy Guede (Djirbi Kebe) are all assembled for their big moment. There is a bit of groping and kissing and Kercher’s clothes come lose.

Andy Gray And Richard Keys Gone: Now For The BBC’s Sexist Perry Groves

RICHARD Keys and Andy Gray have been routed from pay-per-view satellite TV. People who don’t pay to watch football on Sky Sports need never hear their sniveling, debased off air comments again.

But the Touchline Taliban are many in face and voice. Take the BBC’s Perry Groves in the Sun:

“I know a lot of women and they’re not consistent from hour to hour. Footballers want the rules to be applied consistently and this wouldn’t happen with women refs. It’s hard enough for male refs to earn respect from players. With a woman in charge, players will be thinking: ‘You know nothing about football’. Also, let’s face it, women have periods and we all know how hormones affect them. Would women refs be banned during their ‘time of the month’ because they might be more emotional, depressed or aggressive?”

Blue Are Back For Eurovision As The Official Sound Of The BBC

BLUE are back – finally. The boys have stepped away from the stella post-boy-band careers (fries, sir?) to do their patriotic duty and serve the nation at the Eurovision Song Contest. It’s Red, White and BLUE.

Blue were chosen for the job by the BBC, so making the young middle-aged dudes the official sound of the state broadcaster. And how cool is that!
