Dear people whose musical taste and, therefore, opinion I respect,

Did you hear that Radio 1 is going to bleep out the word 'faggot' in the
re-release of Fairytale of New York? My mate is writing a piece on it in the Times. She just asked my opinion and I think it's political correctness gone mad....I thought a faggot was a bundle of sticks or a meatball! And I'm sure I was singing that song when I was about 8!!....and why arn't they beeping out the word 'arse'.....that's derrier-ist!!!

What do you think?

Love from D.B- who lives happily in the gay capital of England

Its a fucking joke really, they also beep it out on the music channels.

Jaki I think you mean "bleep facists".

No way should they bleep it out.

We played it at our school Christmas dinner and nobody minded (I did wonder if I was the only one to know the actual lyrics). Disappointingly not one child picked up any ideas for verbally abusing each other but such is the state of today's generation. In my day we'd have taken those lyrics and made them our own.

Read an article on Shane the other day and he tackle the "faggot" remark.

Did you know Ronan Keating covered it and changed it to "cheap lousy haggard"? What a fucking moron.
