Fury diminished!

Firstly, I would confirm that I would rather schedule open-heart surgery without anaesthetic upon myself than have watched the BBC Sports Personality Farce / Clownfest / Contest (delete applicable).

I originally wrote:-

I find that I have more than a sneaking regard for just one of those nominated, namely Tyson Fury; as he has demonstrated that he has more than enough guts and determination to not only batter several other men insensible in his pursuit of his Championship goals; but also to continue in the paths and beliefs which have nurtured him from an early age. He is gloriously politically-incorrect, and revels in the uproar from all those who are ‘OFFENDED’, by his statements regarding homosexuals, paeadophiles, etc., all spoken with the greatest goodwill and meaning.

But then he went and spoiled everything by apologising for any ‘OFFENCE’ taken by his earlier words. How truly, truly depressing!

    Some personality-free tennis player was voted “Sports Personality of the Year”.

    This is almost as amusing as Saudi Arabia being elected to chair the UN’s human rights!

      “The ministry might find it an opportunity to exchange support with the United Kingdom, where the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia would support the candidacy of the United Kingdom to the membership of the council for the period 2014-2015 in exchange for the support of the United Kingdom to the candidacy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”

      Another cable revealed that Saudi Arabia transferred $100,000 for “expenditures resulting from the campaign to nominate the Kingdom for membership of the human rights council for the period 2014-2016”. It was unclear where or how this money was spent.

      Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, told the Australian: “Based on the evidence, we remain deeply concerned that the UK may have contracted to elect the world’s most misogynistic regime as a world judge of human rights.

      In all of that, strange to relate, I can find nothing even remotely amusing.

      In actual fact, I am gravely perplexed that Camoron’s loonies could find accommodation with the pedlars, apologists and at once, the doctrinaires dealing the cult of death.

      Are we to surmise that, have we stooped so low – we must aver, affirmative to that.

      Furthermore, by extension are the Tories not complicit?

      In conclusion, HMG, the Tory party and allies in the FCO are in cahoots with the death cult and if follows therefore; with the wanton and ongoing perfidy, that of the deliberate Islamification of Britain?

        You are quite right HU, I was being flippant, which is inappropriate when mentioning the disgusting and barbaric KSA.

          I did sense it Ed P but was still minded to remark on the comment – not insofar as you are concerned but for other readers who may be browsing – it needs to be stated and VERY LOUDLY – at that.

      or Merkel being nominated for Nobel Peace Prize, and being on front page of Time magazine.

    I simply cannot understand this passion that has become so fashionable in the entertainment and sporting worlds for “awards”. We’ve long had the Oscars and that is now joined by a few other similar occasions doing precisely the same thing. Every cricket or football match has to have a “player of the match” award and now we have the “Sporting Personality” award. I disapprove strongly of the whole business and feel very sad that so many people seem to want to be a part of it all.

    Some of us are old enough to remember when it was ‘Sports Review Of The Year’, featuring summaries of all major, and some minor, sports by expert analysts and commentators. A small segment of that quality programme was used to name the ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ to general acclaim.
    Since then, it has become simply another example of participatory celeb-fest dross, pandering to the slow attention-span, the hard-of-thinking and the politically correct – did you count how many ‘Irish’ references and paddy-people they managed desperately to cram into it, just because it was from ‘peaceful’ Belfast ?
    It’s a disgrace to the BBC, but then the BBC’s a disgrace to the BBC.

    The Tourism NI bunch, plus Belfast city council paid a total of £240,000.00 for the privilege of hosting this display of sheer stupidity.

    Value for money?

    Cobblers!
