Where will all this lead to?

I am posting this because of the statement "But outraged Year Nine parents were 'furious' and said there was no place for the 1970s humour 'in this day and age'."

Hmm, hello, yes there is, I am not racist, I just have a sense of humour.

The two Ronnies didnt have a racist or whatever bone in their body, but it means this PC stance robs us all of repeats etc., as the powers that be blacklist programmes just to be seen as PC.

We wont be able to laugh or smirk at anything or anyone shortly because there will bound to be someone within earshot that will no doubt be totally insulted and not be able to sleep anymore and are under medication because they were so outraged and offended to hear someone laugh on something they found offensive. Then they will sue you for everything you have got.

Fear of being sued or sacked will alter society.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Secondary School head apologises after 'racist and sexist' Two Ronnies sketch is played at parents' evening to demonstrate importance of good communication. The clip titled Sheikh in a Grocery Store was shown at Archway School in Stroud,

Ronnie Corbett plays an Arabic man who struggles to pronounce shopping items.

Outraged Year Nine parents were 'furious' with decision to play 'outdated' video.

Head Colin Belford said he personally contacted parents to apologise over clip.

A head teacher was forced to apologise after a 'racist' and 'sexist' Two Ronnies sketch was played during a school parents evening.

The clip, titled Sheikh in a Grocery Store, was displayed to show the importance of communication between parents and teachers.

But outraged Year Nine parents were 'furious' and said there was no place for the 1970s humour 'in this day and age'.

The sketch opens with Barker in his familiar role as a brown-coated shopkeeper before Corbett enters wearing dark makeup and a thawb.

As the Sheikh enters, the shopkeeper says 'Old Ali Baba's a bit off course' and 'Morning Abdul'.

Several miscommunications follow as the Sheikh tries to purchase items, mispronouncing 'choc-ol-atty mouse' (chocolate mousse) and 'tom-a-too purry' (tomato puree).

Barker tries to correct his English mispronunciations as the Sheikh blunders through cinnamon as 'Chinaman' and juice as 'Jewish'.

But shopkeeper Barker stops and begins to mimic him as the frustrated Sheikh piles cash up on the counter.

The clip was played last Thursday during the hour-long evening at Archway School, a mixed comprehensive in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

One horrified parent, who asked to remain anonymous, said: 'A teacher giving the presentation said the clips would show us how important communication is, but we couldn't believe it when it when it came on the screen.

The sketch opens Corbett wearing dark makeup and a thawb, to make him appear as a Arabic man (shown)

Outraged Year Nine parents were 'furious' and said there was no place for the 1970s humour 'in this day and age'

'I love the Two Ronnies but showing someone with their face blacked up in order to laugh at their accent in this day and age? I was furious.'

Another said: 'The Two Ronnies are brilliant, but there's just no place for this racist humour anymore.'

Head teacher Colin Belford said he personally contacted parents to apologise for the 'inappropriate choice' of clip.

Mr Belford said: 'I was contacted by some parents following a year nine information evening last week.

'They were understandably and justifiably concerned and offended by a YouTube clip which was used on the evening.

'The clip was of a Two Ronnies sketch from the 1970s - the intention had been to demonstrate communication difficulties.

The clip was played last Thursday during the hour-long evening at Archway School, a mixed comprehensive in Stroud, Gloucestershire

'I have spoken to each of the parents who contacted me to apologise for this inappropriate choice.

'I am grateful that they recognised that this is neither typical of Archway nor its inclusivity. The matter is being dealt with internally.'

But the sketch also had sexist elements with shopkeeper Barker being derogatory and demeaning to his wife.

The shopkeeper's wife enters midway through the five-minute video, and asks the pair if they are drunk to which Barker replies 'Shut up and clear off'.

He turns to the Sheikh, who is trying to order bicarbonate of soda, and says 'Apologies on behalf of the wife, Sir'.

The Sheikh, attempting to say 'soda', replies 'Sod her' to which the shopkeeper says: 'Yeah, that's what I say'.

Head teacher Colin Belford said he personally contacted parents to apologise for the 'inappropriate choice' of clip

Re: Where will all this lead to?

They did a similar sketch with white people with the 'Fork Handles' sketch. I posted this in the idiot of the week thread, mainly because you should know your audience and a bunch of parents in a mixed school (some of whom have previous grudges) means they set themselves up for complaints.

Re: Where will all this lead to?

Seem to remember Punch & Judy getting some stick a few years back with, "that's the way to do it", turned out it wasn't. Clattered his missus, the dog & the policeman.

It was all on camera & he got an eight stretch.
