So what do you make of this then? I am no fan of Royalty but then this Baker chap is an idiot at the best of time.

His claim that the racist elements "Didn't occur to him until they were pointed out" is disingenuous at best. It's not that long since Roseanne Barr turned her successful career relaunch on its head and crashed and burned dramatically over similar stuff. Chances of Danny Baker being unaware of this near zero, an arrogant man who thought he could get away with anything, horribly surprised to find he can't and furiously trying to blame anybody and everybody else for his demise rather than accept the buck stops with him.

I used to listen to him back on Radio 5 but lost track of him after he went to Radio 1.

Reminds me of the comment Half-Breeds which had to be deleted on this thread by a certain member of this community. Another idiot lurks here. See if you can guess who.

Don't want to enter the argument about what he actually did wrong , what I will say is I am glad he got the sack. Over the years their have been lots of examples of television , radio and so called celebrities shooting their mouth off and expecting to get away with it because of " WHO THEY ARE"

Several years ago a local radio station had its live phone in staff sacked because the subject being talked about was very controversial. Their were lots of complaints from people including myself , I argued yes swearing live on air IS your fault . I went on to explain what equipment they should use during a phone in. NOTE... my voice goes to a loop of tape BEFORE it hits the airwaves so in theory at least , I should be able to swear at the presenter and listeners will never hear it. Its called a closed loop system , suffice to say they cut me off with no comment.

He's a very silly man if he thought he could do this without there being any repercussion.

As a believer in Evolution i wonder what impact this controversy will have on depictions of ape and man,satirical cartoons abound from the 19th century onwards with the Darwinian view being ridiculed ceaselessly in the press.

Never listened to the man but to state that "i did not know" from someone in the media all his life is pure ignorance or self serving flatulence,the Police rightly should investigate and act accordingly.

daz60 the Police rightly should investigate and act accordingly.

Possibly so but what exactly would they charge him with?
