The political correct police are gunning for another Christmas classic after their success in getting “Baby It’s Cold Outside” banned from major radio stations.
This time they have their sights on the classic Christmas favourite “Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues and Kirsty McColl.
The charge for censorship of the song is being led by RTÉ DJ Eoghan McDermott, who wants the song censored because of its use of the word “Faggot” in the lyrics.
The song can be heard every Christmas season on every radio station often multiple times a day and remains a favourite both in Ireland and globally but the PC brigade fear its use of colourful language may upset some sensitive people.
On his twitter, McDermott has said that the gay staff members at his station that he spoke to about the song either want the word censored but more wanted the song not played at all.
Most responses to his twitter feed have either been incredulous, thinking this is some kind of joke, or outright dismissal of what most people think is a ridiculous demand.
RTE have said that they will continue to play the Christmas classic.
Do you think this incredible song should be banned or is it just more of the same political correct nonsense? Tell us what you think in the Facebook post comments?
