Overheard the Choice FM afternoon show the other day in a shoe shop on the Lea Bridge Road (about 2pm). The DJ was complaining about what he perceived as racism in a chewing gum advert where a white woman sings in a mock Jamacian accent. He got quite worked up about the issue (possibily quite rightly) and urged his listeners to complain to Ofcom "remember what happened with Shilpa", he implored.
He then, without any discernable irony, played a track by the legendary homophobe, Beany Man, a signer who has written songs urging the burning of homosexuals.
I thought of taking the DJ's advice and making a complaint to Ofcom myself.
