Added to which, the whole "Thought Police/PC Mafia" talk is pure garbage. I could understand it if only the second and third of the 3 videos had been were released, as they were just a bit rude but nothing that is anyone else's business when you don't know the relationships of the people involved, but the first one was genuine sexism. If the comment had been "There's a black guy/chinese guy/homosexual running the line today, what do they know about the offside rule" there would never have been any debate about what they deserved and they would probably have got death threats and their houses picketed.RalphWiggum wrote:No place for that kind of shit in the modern workplace. Lots of reaction in the UK has been about "thought police" and the "PC mafia". Well, you're free to say or think whatever you like but as these clowns have found out, you can't do it on company time any more.
In covering the deposition, The Sun also sank to new, bearably believable levels of hypocrisy, with a front page that featured a picture of Sian Massey in a short skirt (stolen from her Facebook page) alongside a snapshot of the disgraced duo with the headline 'Get 'em off'. The most overtly sexist way to demand a sacking over sexism you will ever see.

My wife recently bought me a tie. It's a red one. "Look at the cute little devils on it," she said. "They've got little pitchforks."
It's a Manchester United tie.
I feel a bit weird wearing the tie precisely because I don't give a damn about association football one way or the other but I know everyone who likes soccer who sees me wearing it will automatically assume I am a Manchester United fan. Depending on their point of view, that will make me either a good guy or a dick.
o my poor sides.

I don't think Rangers will be the last British team to suffer such a fate either. I can see a few clubs South of the border getting the financial spanking of their life. QPR next?
