Of complaints

there were almost 25000 complaints to ofcom regarding Ashley Banjo and his BLM dance routine with Diversity dance trouo. Now it seems Aleisha Dixon is also making a statement about BLM by wearing a necklace with the letters BLM.
Do you think it right that Ashley and Alesha should be making a political statement on an entertainment show?

I'm not sure they should be bringing politics into Britain's got talent . I found the dance routine quite depressing.

Don't watch BGT any more but do I think they should be making political statements? Not on a family entertainment show, no.

Re: Of complaints

Why should all TV before the watershed (or always>?) be 'safe', anodyne , personality-free and gauged to satisfy the Tory party and other Right wing abominations, the Mail and other fellow travellers?

Re: Of complaints

It was not neseccary to bring in BLM politics.

All lives matter no matter what colour cast or creed .

Saying that I loved the dancing but it left me feeling uncomfortable

Re: Of complaints

I don't see why they are complaining anyway, as I would have thought Ashley Banjo and Aleisha Dixon had done very well for themselves in this country and have probably got more privileges than a lot of white people here.

I also don't think either should be using their work as a lever for politicial stuff too.

The woke thought process seems to be " you're only worthwhile if you are different. Tradition and status quo are immoral. White is bad, white male is worse, white heterosexual male is the root of all evil in the world."

'Woke' has replaced PC gone mad' as the favourite distress call of the bigot. And as with tall the other bilge they spew out, it says more about their lack of comprehension than anything else. See for example,
