Wonder what the sun had to say today??

Maybe I'm para but they are well capable of hyping it up to help the sacking along.

Murdoch is just an a-hole.
This is a man that a few years ago, around about the age of 70 re-married.
His bride of choice was a 19 year old asian girl.
That's how much he likes women.

Gray was apparently in the process of suing one of Murdoch's papers for phone-tapping or something (why they'd want to tap the phone of a sports presenter is beyond me). The ref incident has provided a convenient excuse to get rid of him.

As I mentioned before this bizarre decision to sack Gray, my concern was more to do with certain sections of the press feeling they can effectively spy on people for the most innocuous reasons. I truly don't think this is about sexism or any other 'ism'. It raises the issue of your right to privacy and freedom of speech. It comes back to the principle of 'I do not agree with what you have to say but I'll defend to the death your right to say it'.

I'm looking forward to the next time that a woman states that men 'cant multitask', or how 'its only manflu' etc, wonder if the same decisions will be made, its all very bizarre and Letchworth's 4th least sexist DJ simply doesnt understand

Yes RS. That was something I have completely forgotten. Andy Gray was in the process of bringing news international to court for tapping his phone. Wonder if that influenced the same news international to sack him.??



And when it comes to female chauvinism yes, there are many women that have developed a hardened attitude towards men. That is misguided. That's why I'm always complaining about stereotyping. It's something women can be just as guilty of.
In exactly the same way there are many non-whites who have racist attitudes. Racists don't come in one colour any more than sexists come in one gender.

But. And it's a big but. The average white male will never know what it's like to have their lives blighted by being judged on their race or gender.
And pointing out that others do the same is still no excuse.

No Tom. Earl is laying down some bass lines on multi-track for the first lot of songs we've been working on. Then Mr bassman is off for some root canal work so it's a day off for me.
I've just finished watching prime ministers questions [don't know why I bother, it doesn't tell you anything. Except show how much contempt they have for the public]. Then spot of DIY.
Be back slaving over a hot drum kit tomorrow.

Great to hear (apart from Earl's root canal work).Talking of PMQs,hope's there's plenty of new political songs.
