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!
