I am gobsmacked. They fucked with the ONLY Christmas song that doesn't make me want to kill someone.
Bastards. I am Utterly against that.

Right, and if this is supposed to be about 'the gays' being offended-and I doubt it is, how can they take out 'faggot' but Leave 'fairy' in the fucking title. French Gay is right, they're always trying to make 'the gays' looks bad.

I could swear I heard it on the radio today.
BTW I listened to the 'medium' and then tried to switch it off in mid flow and there were two of them spouting off. Nightmare!

What could they get to rhyme with maggot?

Is there not at least one other Christmas song that doesn't elicit murderous feelings?

It's probably a publicity stunt. Great viral marketing. Everybody is talking about it and wants to hear it, result - more sales. It'll get to No. 1. A cynic, moi?

We'll get locked in the Baggot?

or if you are the fantastic minstrel that is Ronan "I earn more money in a month than you'll see in a year" Keating

You're tired and you're haggard.

Good man Ronan!

They do this to create an uproar so people can denounce being "politically correct."

I think I speak for scumbags and maggots everywhere, in saying it is highly offensive for our comrades, the cheap lousy faggots, to be disenfranchised in this way.

It's fucking depressing. You do your best in the face of almighty consumerism to retain a little of the spirit of Christmas and now even the BBC are pulling shit like this. It'll get you down. It's not a big thing but it's the steady, little chip chip chipping away at the few remaining authentic sentiments of the season that'll get you down the most. Apparantly talking pretty is more important than actually expressing anything.

I'd understand if I thought this was even half way to a big deal for gays. I'm certain it's not for my own gay friends. If there is a gay person offended by this song, I'd be surprised. There's a whole lot more serious ugliness they have to face every day in the form of indirect, unspoken or snide prejudice against them to bother about a Pogues song. I distinctly half-remember doing a Kirsty to my recently outed gay friend's Shane in front of the patrons of a fancy gay bar in Glasgow. As far as I can recall, the only offence taken was caused by our 6-beers-in tunelessness. That was about 10 years ago which is suddenly depressing too.

Bloody maggots at the BBC, worming their way around popular culture and eating away at the best bits. Do they not understand that these are supposed to be characters singing, like in a book? Idiots!

My gay chums despair at this sort of crap too Sam. 'Ooo iz eet ze speak-ed for? Not for me!' French Gay said earlier. He's embarrassed by it all.
And quite right.

Really? Well, I must say, between this and Pamela Anderson Lee Rock Soloman, my bloomin' posts are only getting half a shelf life. Up one minute, ballsed up the next.
But HEY! at least the song is left alone.
