    Oh my f**king god!

    !!! That is so.... out of order !!!

    The language is so violent and outragous- its not far from how Hitler spoke about the Jews- and it gets printed in a national paper!

    OK, so the The Express is a shabby copy of the Daily Mail (also a horrible little newspaper) and not alot of sane minded people are likely to read it- but British taxpayers money is being given to him to do that stupid show of his.

    Sack him now, bbc.

    Nice one eye - yet I'm thinking given the controversial nature of this you would have been better of in the last line replacing 'geek' with 'wanker' ;)

    actually, its not really my word - its just much more British and a little more edgier that 'geek'. Actually doesn't mean geek at all ;)

    You're right there, it means....:eek:...no, I won't say it :D

    I'm actually kinda surprised "wanker" isn't on the MR word filter, calling the wrong person here in the UK a wanker could very easily wind you up with a black eye :eek:

    Re: Oh my f**king god!

    Give him a medal more like, this country is full of lilly livered liberal Gaurdian readers who are too scared to think for themselves or to allow anyone else to speak a word against the liberal line.
    The state of this cowaring country is what allows socialist groups like the nazi party to get a mind hold over an entire country.
    the BBC article finishes by saying that Kilroy shouldn't say things that "weak minded" people may use as reason to attack Arab people.
    Imagine what you would need to say to make "weak minded" people hijack aircraft and murder thousands of other people.

    Because someone says something doesn't mean they are right or will be agreed with. It take a mass of people too controlled by a single idea to not think as individuals. Imagine how dangerous communist Europe is going to be.

    If you think I'm on a mad rant, then someone better make a web site with instructions for what I can and cannot think.

    the worst thing is, someone will want to accuse me of being "just like hitler"

    Just because I defend someones right to speak an opinion and not get sacked, doesn't mean I agree with what they are saying. I'm just sick of all these false kindnesses that come with a rule book.
    Kindness comes from individual hearts not the comity of facist dogooders.

    you want the guy to be sacked! what happens when he never works again and can't afford to keep the stability of life his income provided for others. Life isn't a rosey as some idealists manifesto, life is nasty, brutish and short.

    Re: Re: Oh my f**king god!

    The man was enjoying two pay cheques; one from the BBC, the other from his Sunday Express column. I think he's probably comfortably set-up for life.

    You use the Guardian to bash 'liberals' but you'll find the Guardian is the one paper that will defend free speeech and go to court to get information out in the open, even if the story is worthy but so dull it won't shift any extra copies.

    They put up Julie Burchell spouting non-sense for years and now she's pissed off to the Times for a more sizable cheque.

    Kilroy said what he said, knew his position and now must pay the price.

    Bring on Trisha, queen of daytime trash!

    Well I think you agreed to certain rules on what you can and cannot say on these forums. You could start there.

    Back on topic - maybe you don't agree with Kilroy, but isn't he right to start a debate? The Arab world has vehemently ranted against the west, and liberal western opinion has said any criticism of this is racist. About time we rejected this and allowed proper debate.

    Kettle> I have to say that I agree with you. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, whether it be of a positive or negative nature. If Kilroy feels this way (which he kind of seems to....) about arabs in general, then why shouldn't he? Much of what he said rings true.

    Besides, what kind of idiot is going to use something like this as a reason to attack someone they think might be arab?

    Found out some more info, apparently this article was printed a few months back and recieved no complaints, the article was then re-printed and got a good kicking, allowing the BBC to take Kilroy's show off the air while they investigate complaints and try to get better ratings with something else.
    ...Maybe Kilroy had a really water tight contract that kept him on air even though he was so desperately bad at providing entertainment.

    It doesn't seem to me that this would be a career ending quote - not like some others who haven't been as lucky.

    any publicity is good publicity for him, i'm guessing.

    It might be the end of his BBC career but unlikely now he's retracted his remarks and apologised for any offence caused.

    The fact that it was first printed before the BBC brought in new guidelines (following the Hutton inquiry) on journalists/presenters taking an extra cheque from newpaper columns may save his bacon.

    Update: It helps if I read more carefully the news before I post! His apology amounted to 'regret' over his comments appearing 'out of context', so not really an apology at all. And oh, he's publicly blamed his secretary for the re-print. A true hero for our times :rolleyes:
