It's after 9pm so I can say Piss Off Ofcom!

The term 'Its Political Correctness gone mad' is being used far too much recently, and its beginning to spread onto our TV screens. Whenever I read the newspapers, I regularly see articles regarding complaints made to Ofcom, resulting in the organisation trying to restrict programmes on what they can and can't show. For those of you who do not know what Ofcom is. Its basically the call you make after the police tell you that someone threatening Kane on Emerdale does not count as a police matter! They are the next step down from Ghostbusters!

But what really bugs me is how inconsistent they are! Last year, Ofcom had a paddy about how Rihanna and Christina Aguilera were too sexy in their performances (However, even if they were dressed as nuns they could make it sexy). What I want to know is how no one has complained about Kelly Rowlands performance on X Factor last week! Not only did she dress provocatively (Above), but her song is basically about being open to sexual activities. Lyrics such as 'I'm down for whatever, I'm down for whatever, when it comes to you, I can make love on the floor' and also 'baby lets get creative cause with you I am sure'

Now I don't care about the songs, or the dress code. What annoys me is how Ofcom has so much power over production companies. If Ofcom had its own way, every television programme would be like 'Relocation, Relocation, Relocation' or 'University Challenge' Even Monica Gellar would think it was no fun!

Would Britain really crumble is Ofcom didn't exist? Babestation would not be on every channel! Frankie Boyle still wouldn't be allowed his own programme! But people would be able to give their opinions on subjects without worrying about being in trouble, and more importantly, soaps would have proper arguments, so really it needs to happen!

Fingers crossed, someone from Ofcom will say either something racist, or something sexist and then they would no longer exist! So if Derren Brown can sort that out for me then maybe I would start taking him seriously!

Jeremy Clarkson is on the naughty step...Again!

Jeremy Clarkson just cannot behave! If he isn't accusing lorry drivers of murdering prostitutes, then he is insulting the Welsh language, or punching Piers Morgan... OK so not all is bad. But he can't seem to stop himself from putting his foot in it.

After the public strike which saw disruption across the public sector, Jeremy Clarkson was in the wrong place at the wrong time, being a guest on the BBC's 'The One Show'.

When asked for his opinion on the strikes over pensions, Jeremy responded by saying how 'fantastic' it was because 'London has just been empty' 'But we have to balance though. Because this is the BBC, frankly I'd have them all shot! I would take them outside and have them executed in front of their families!'

Well like usual, this did not go down well with the British public, because, as we all know, the general public does not have a sense of humour and therefore cannot identify sarcasm. Apparently Offcom received 5,000 complaints, and even the Prime Minister David Cameron and Labour party leader Ed Miliband had their say. Although I feel David should be concentrating on more important things like whether the pensions are going to be affecting him as well as the other MP's, or is the government going to be OK?

Anyways the BBC and Jeremy Clarkson have apologised for any offence that was caused. But for those who were offended by this, get over it! He was clearly joking and if they don't understand sarcasm then they should not be allowed to own a telephone!

So there you go Jeremy, I have your back, however, in regards to you comment about suicides... You're on your own with that one.
