Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

Story of a Pleb

So BBC Wimbledon commentator John Inverdale is in trouble after making derogatory remarks about new champion Marion Bartoli's looks.

Ludicrously, these comments have been criticised for being "sexist."  What rubbish!  Inverdale was commenting on her looks, not her gender; people are very stupid, allowing themselves to be brainwashed by the "right-on" lefties and liberals.

As for Inverdale, whilst  not guilty of "sexism," he is certainly guilty of deplorable ungentlemanly behaviour and should immediately offer a grovelling personal apology if not his resignation (fat chance).

After all, what can one expect of a somebody who would say "love-forty DOWN?"

As I have complained before, why does the BBC find it necessary to employ oiks like Inverdale?


It has just been reported that Inverdale has written to Mlle Bartoli apologising for what he called his "ham-fisted comments."

I should bloody-well think so.

Until the next time.

Sexist ,of course its sexist

He wouldn`t have been derogatory about a blokes "looks"
perhaps if she was paid equally he would be more polite.

But she was...

And anyone who watched the two singles finals would see straight away my point about the prize money.

He might have been derogatory about "a bloke's looks" were he one of those who bats for the other side!
