      I've not seen this hellish abomination of a show so I don't know what occurred.

      But are you really trying to stick up for Jim Davidson? About anything? It's not just that he's a horrible racist, sexist scumbag with the self awareness of the cat shit I cleaned off my astroturf earlier, it's..... Well actually it is all that, but it's also that he's NEVER been funny.

      He's just a nasty, bitter dickhead who made a career out of being a nasty, bitter dickhead when telling "jokes" about people who were different was acceptable and appealed to basic, uneducated, scared people.

      It is called history, fortunately as thick ***** like him can't make a living spouting bile dressed up as comedy any more. It's also called progress.
      I seem to recall that he has done a lot of charity work as well as entertaining troops in theatre. Its not all bad, if you don't like him, don't watch him. I myself find James Corden particularly inane and unfunny so never watch him. Its quite easy. What do you make of this, truthful or racist?

      Don't see the point in it. JD refused to move on, like Bernard Manning, standing up for the right to make a joke out of race in a derisory way and continuing to supporting negative racial bias/stereotypes. Funny at the time, along with Love Thy Neighbour, Alf Garnet, On The Buses etc, but not any more. I think the only show that was clever enough to pull off 'race parody' type humour was Rising Damp. Rossiter's character was both odious and unlikable, difficult to empathise with, unlike white roles in other shows that seemed to reflect the social acceptance of biases at the time. IMHO.
      To be fair, love they neighbour was a very clever way, as was till death us do part, in showing how it was and the main characters being derided in their prejudice.

      In love thy neighbour, the northerner who had such views was derided by both black leads and his wife, who all showed that he was alone in his views. Btw. The black actor is in East Enders.

      That YouTube clip is a bit oddly titled. He doesn't destroy Richard Bacon at all.

      I think someone mentioned misleading youtube titles on that Milo thread. On another forum, someone posted a Milo vid with a title about him leaving someone in a sobbing heap. No such thing. But then again who would watch a vid entitled 'two bitter tits try to out clever each other'? Its all about the view numbers purporting to give credibility.

      Its subjective and I didn't intend to highlight the title, only its content, so that some balance could be brought to the thread.

      Yes, I completely agree that the past should be accepted for what it was. Nothing should ever be airbrushed or rewritten.

      My main point was that Davidson was seen as a moronic, lowest common denominator, unfunny, dickhead at the time as well by lots of people. I remember him as a kid. My mum and every other adult I knew cringed at his stuff back then.

      You highlighted me saying his material was acceptable, but not by whom. Enough people actually found him offensive at the time. Fortunately, or we'd never have moved on.
      Couldn’t stand him but arguably Britain’s top stand up comedian in his day. Check it out.
      So, many, many thanks and see you soon, because it’s not a goodbye, I know I will come back, I have to.
