Winning elections since WWII by promising to control immigration.

Originally the girls were called Rosebuds, but were renamed by Lord Baden-Powell after the girls had complained that they did not like their name. Their name comes from the story "The Brownies" by Juliana Horatia Ewing, written in 1870. In the story two children, Tommy and Betty, learn that children can be helpful brownies (Woodland folk) instead of being lazy boggarts.

So I guess it's because the Woodland woke alliance has said it's offence to all the fairyland creatures.

In Canada they are renaming the brownies aged 7-9 as this is offensive apparently.
The fact their uniform colour is why they are called the Ďbrowniesí obs isnít considered. I think they might be calling them
Racists little slave trading b******s. Or whites for short

Yep, I think the latest Tory concern is adding trans to their 'no conversion therapy allowed' bill.

Social liberals, not conservatives.....being two degrees less degenerate than the mainstream left doesn't cut it for me.

Here's one for you lovers of the BBC.

More fall out from Ken Bruce being replaced at Radio 2. I have some sympathy with the beeb as most radio stations replace their lineups without quite he same fuss.

What is telling is the number of complaints (100) the Mail is bigging it up but actually if I was the BBC it would make my point.

If only 100 people complained then I guess it confirms that they were right to let him go its hardly a backlash.

 


One more point

Itís the only time I listen to a BBC radio show and thatís only really because of pop master. Rest of the time itís Absolute Rock or anything playing 60s, 70s, 80s music.

Bruce will be missed but what has really screwed radio 2 is its insistence on trying to appeal to a younger audience. I thought thatís what radio 1 is for.

I don't listen to the station but isn't the point about golden oldies is that you have to move with your audience. For my age group oldies would be the sixties and seventies to a 40yo it would be the nineties.

Surely as your audience grows old and dies you have to move the dial forward.

I think the issue for the BBC is not pensioning off all these old white males but it's who they replace them with.

Agree with that. We have a retirement home near us (handy) where they have music nights which consist of records like Vera Lynn and Glenn Miller which is all very well but must be a bit trying for people who grew up listing to The Who, Stones, etc.

Its stereotyping us 'wrinklies' into pidgeon holes. Its not the bbc but commercial channels, that when they advertise life insurance etc for 50-80yo the free gift card is usually for Marks n Sparks! im approaching 70 & have never shopped in their stores, Primarni etc yes, tho we do have a C&A's where i am.

Guess im asking is why do they (bbc/itv etc) think that we oldies have to be in these stereotypical groups, are any of other HOLer's in this age group do what is expected by the marketeers etc.

Hmmm but given the choice? Would you listen to 60ís, 70ís, 80s when music was decent and mostly written by the bands themselves or the modern crap where songs are written for performing seals or to a music college formula. I know what Iíd rather listen to and canít really understand what current music is supposed to be. There certainly doesnít seem to be the same innovation there used to be where distinct styles were created decade by decade.

If BBC radio 2 do not wish to cater for 40-70 year olds now I have no idea who they should be appealing to because there are plenty of other stations covering Ďpresent dayí music.
