But imagine how eye watering it was when the rack was full.

Radio 1 have announced that they will no longer play the original version of Fairytale of New York, by The Pogues w/ Kirsty MacColl, as one of the words in the lyrics is now considered to be offensive. It's going to be hard to find something to go into that line in place of it, though.

All I can come up with is...

You scumbag you maggot
You lousy Inspector Taggart

Ha, ha! It made em chortle when I read the story. I'm sure Shane intended no upset, annoyance, resent or attack. The BBC's action to the lyrics is by far more offensive to radio1 listeners. Anyway how can a bundle of sticks be so offensive?

This, to me at least, is the funniest thing to come out of the BBC/Pogues saga.

L. Fox Esq - Oooooh, look, a bandwagon. Quick, someone give uncle Lozza a leg up.
Pogues - Fuck off you little herrenvolk shite.

Fox: 0 - 1: Pogues. Three very easy away points for the Pogues there.

The Wiki entry is beautifully understated...

"In November 2020 he criticised the BBC for playing a version of Fairytale of New York edited by the Pogues rather than the original version on Radio 1.[35] The band used their Twitter account to tell Fox it was none of his business."
