politically incorrect statement causes suspension for tv producer.

Just another one of those damned annoying pol. correct things this country is enamoured of.
Quick. Find a tree and bring a rope. Or at the least, tar and feathers for incorrect thinking and, gasp, saying incorrect things. Out loud. Where ppl can hear. Oh the crime!

We do not have a TV, and if we did we wouldn’t catch this one anyway. Not to our taste, once saw part of an episode a long time ago. Lots of reason for not liking it but , this sure isn’t one of them.

The guy is quite right. Read it and see if you don’t agree. It’s true of this village.

In the 7 yrs we’ve been here (come April), we haven’t seen a single Indian, or anyone from Pakistan or China. Have seen only one black person and that was perhaps three or four years ago, and none since.  And it isn’t due to ppl here keeping anyone out.
They couldn’t if they wanted to.  We see some in town, not too many so far. Speaking of muslims now. They’re here but just not in this village. But the way some ppl talk, and understand this, not just libtards, you would think it’s a crime against humanity if a village only had white folks living in it.  Not only that, there are actually people here, mostly on the left as you’d guess, who insist that places like this should go out and actively seek minorities to move here, in an effort to stay in step with this diversity shit. And trust me. That’s exactly what it is.

The fact of the matter is that most rural villages throughout this country, happen to be populated by mostly white people. It’s just the way things fall out. There are very few if any homes in rural areas that have welfare housing, so that eliminates quite a few.  And mostly, those people just do not seek out rural areas to live in. With the possible exception of gypsies/travellers. But that’s an entirely different subject.

So here … take a look.


Suspended Midsomer Murders producer in crisis talks after revealing he excludes ethnic characters

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

The executive producer of Midsomer Murders was in crisis talks about his future on the show today after revealing he deliberately excludes ethnic characters.
Brian True-May was taken to a meeting in a chauffeur-driven Mercedes and a further statement is expected to be released later.

Mr True-May, who has already been suspended, refused to comment as he left the house in Great Missenden, Bucks.
The executive producer created a storm by saying he did not use black or Asian people in the ITV drama because ‘it wouldn’t be an English village with them’.

He described it as the ‘last bastion of Englishness’ which relied on an ‘English genteel eccentricity’, claiming it ‘wouldn’t work’ if it suggested there was racial diversity in village life.
Mr True-May told the Radio Times if he had more minority cast members ‘we might be in Slough’.

His comments sparked fury among charities and campaigners and he was suspended by the production company behind the show All3Media. ITV also said it was ‘shocked and appalled’.

But scores of viewers made clear they felt the suspension was a total overreaction and his own co-stars came out in support.
Neil Dudgeon, who has taken over the lead role from John Nettles, said he more than trusted his producer’s judgment.
He said: ‘If people have been quite happy for it not to really change in 14 years, there’s no reason to suppose they’re going to want it to change now.’
Jason Hughes, who plays DS Ben Jones added that he had always wondered whether any Asian or black characters would be brought into the show.
He said: ‘I don’t think we would all suddenly go, “A black gardener in Midsomer? You can’t have that!” ‘I think we’d all go, ‘Great, fantastic”.’

Viewers writing online agreed the producer’s comments were clumsy but pointed out that Midsomer could hardly be seen as a typical English village given that it had such an unrealistically high murder rate.
On the website digitalspy’s chat room, one user called cloudfactory said it was ‘ridiculous’ he was suspended for ‘saying something perfectly reasonable’.

When asked to clarify what he meant, he added. ‘Well, we just don’t have ethnic minorities involved. Because it wouldn’t be the English village with them. It just wouldn’t work. Suddenly we might be in Slough.
‘Ironically, Causton [the fictional local town in Midsomer Murders] is supposed to be Slough. And if you went in to Slough you wouldn’t see a white face there.
‘We’re the last bastion of Englishness and I want to keep it that way.’
He admitted that Englishness should include other races, but added: ‘Maybe I’m not politically correct’.

And then we hear from a muslim rep. on the issue. He makes it sound like it’s ONLY THEM involved. What a surprise that is. Like this is supposed to be an attack on muzzies.

Mohammed Shafiq, of the Ramadhan Foundation, which aims to create a better understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims, said: ‘There is a wider agenda in what he is saying which is worrying for me.
‘To try to wipe us or our presence off television screens is wrong and factually incorrect.’

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
