George Galloway was hounding him on t'wireless tonight.

One of the points he made was that bald and ginger people should be in the discrimination act and Galloway claimed it was ridiculous harping on to the Stephen Lawrence case. Does he not reckon any playground bullies have made the life of carrot tops hell?

The fella also argued that the blacking up was alright depending on the context in which it was meant, as in they were impersonating characters as opposed to being derogatory towards the race. Galloway attempted to argue that if people are offended then it's wrong. OK George so if one person is offended by you then you should be taken off air?

A fair argument George but you called someone a dwarf the previous night!

For once I agreed with something that a Tory was saying...

I know I don't like agreeing with Tories either it sits very uneasily with me.
