Her Majesty’s BBC is up to here – no HERE – in hot water today following someone’s bright idea that the debate of the day should be not ‘How much of Cheryl Cole’s hair is her own?’, not ‘Is Diana Ross the Boss?’ and not ‘How would you vote if an election was called in ten minutes’ time?’ The debate of the day should be, according to someone posh who’s doing work experience in White City, ‘Should homosexuals face execution?’
OK, so it’s not asking for a general opinion on the lining up and shooting of the gays, it’s asking for a debate on dirty Uganda’s new stance against homosexuality: basically, if you’re gay you should be banged up for life (and not in a good way) or simply shot.
Why decent countries are not threatening to cut all ties with such a nasty piece of work (can you imagine still trading with a country that did the same to Jews or gypsies?) is a mystery. But thankfully HMBBC has stepped down and re-phrased their debate to ‘Should Uganda debate gay execution?’
How about for tomorrow, ‘Should we all go and push dog shit through the letterbox at the Ugandan Embassy?’
