BBC cutting cost by getting rid of an over paid presenter and not having to pay up his contract . I always turned the radio over when Mr Baker was on .

Give over, that's everyone's take on it. Lol

In what world can it allude to anything else? I don't think the bloke is racist, but this 'joke' 100% is. He's shot himself.in the foot big time.

Not a court in the land that's going to buy his hastily cobbled together version about class or whatever it was after the fact.

The difference with Baker is he represents his company and has a responsibility towards public broadcasting

See....an innocent misinterpretation...but of course you're right YT I wasn't for one minute suggesting that is was YOU calling for him to be sacked...I was referring to those that actually DID on t***ter.

Happy to clear up the confusion my post may have inadvertently caused

No worries. I realised that you (and a previous poster) were generalising rather than referring to me. I just wanted to make sure that all other readers realised it!

I can see how a person could make a mistake like this out of innocence but it's a bit dim....which is amusing because Baker seems quite smart.

The politically correct and the dim love the chimp equals black stuff, though to be fair to the BBC in the current climate I don't see how they had much wiggle room. Still, by reacting they give the concept power by recognising it....rock and a hard place.

Still, If people want to connect chimps and monkeys to black people then fine but don't they realise that all humans are related to chimps and other great apes not just blacks. Not forgetting that whites also come from blacks themselves.....and as for monkeys they are on a different evolutionary branch from humans.

While I actually do recognise the genetic differences between classical groups.....which the social constructionists wish to wave away.....silly and demeaning taunts that don't make much sense are just that.

Still, while the chimp equals black concept is always a bit weird to me the reality that Harry married a dud isn't.

Danny Baker has compounded the felony (if indeed it was a felony) by saying that: "[The BBC managers that sacked me] literally threw me under the bus." Source of quote - Metro website.

Surely that would just muffle the sound? It would have been better to select another station.

Lots of people do. That's what makes it a valid topic for discussion, surely. HOL hasn't created the issue; Danny Baker and the BBC have.

What you are, of course, saying is that you don't give a fcuk, which is your prerogative.
