Fairytale ending ...

  1. Radio 1 , now (apparently) listened to by our hip and modern snowflake generation have bowed to pressure and won`t be playing the original version due to it`s `derogetory terms of gender and sexuality ...`


    Just to balance things out :-

    I know its not quite `that time` yet but in my eyes it`s never too early .... :D

  2. Dont blame the kids. if you do your wide of the mark. Name the knob jockey that thought it was an issue in the first place.

    The Fairytale of New York is THE best thing about Christmas.
    Let’s hope other stations don’t bow to pressure, and play it loud and proud.

  7. One of the best Christmas songs EVER!
    It's amazing what we can be deemed to be offended by these days. And sad.
    But never mind, Radio 1 have got on their high horse and wallpapered over it.

    I'm going to have to listen to it now just to see what word they have apparently edited out entirely, as I'm sure I can't remember what it would be, and I must've sung along to it a hundred times over the years....

  8. Apparently this was all brought up and made an issue by our wonderful BBC. Goodness knows what they are thinking these days.

  9. I may be offended that you're offended by me being offended.
  10. I don't think it's entirely the BBC - and to be fair, they are reacting to apparent yearly complaints - but just Radio 1. Radio 2 are sticking with the original, and 6 have been told to play either version.
  11. What would Jesus say?
  12. It’s about time ...! ;)
  13. Radio 6 are playing “if you don’t want to **** me baby **** off” by Jayne/ Wayne County instead!

  14. It gladdens my heart to hear you refer to the BBC as wonderful. I totally agree

    To be fair, the whole song should be banned. Or at least until Christmas Eve anyway. Along with any other Christmas song. :mad:

  17. I have to say it’s not my favourite Chrimbo song but if it gets up the noses of a minority of easily offended people that can only be a good thing.
