    Fine.

    If Cuntyboy Smith still wants a CPO, I reckon that we're still up for a scrap.
    If they were uncomfortable last time around, then the word can be redefined.

    And let's stop calling it an 'Independent Inquiry'
    1. Renewal paid for it & LBL set the Terms of Reference, so not 'Independent'
    2. Legally speaking, it was an Internal Review and not a Public Inquiry

    Wall is Coming.

    He's just been sacked by 5Live radio according to his Twitter. I should unfollow him, I know, but watching him squirm this morning is way too much fun. What a dickhead.

    I fucking LOVE Danny Baker.

    Definitely one of the good eggs in life. The pic was a bit nuts, but the thought it was racist to him, is one of the most inaccurate and unjust portrayals I can think of.

    I'm a bit shocked tbh. Probably deserves its own thread, too.

    I'm shocked too, but seriously there's no way he didn't know that tweet was racist. Like I said on the royal baby thread, he's definitely not that naive.

    He is obviously a genuine racist who knew what he was doing and deserves this. The Boston bomb tweet was another disgusting right-wing dog whistle.

    Boston Bomb tweet?

    I don't know what to think on this. Obviously out of context it looks fucking appalling.

    He's has a thing for years on his radio show about monkeys dressed in various uniforms or as posh people, he was pissed watching the football, and he deleted it, said he had missed the context and apologised immediately. Plus I hate Twitter dogpiles. He's a loudmouth controversialist but I have genuinely never heard anything racist from him before and he's always been a lefty (not that lefties can't be racist). I find it hard to believe that even pissed you wouldn't see the problem with that image, but I'm also inclined to give people the benefit of the doubt when they immediately take responsibility and I don't think people should lose their jobs over social media outrage.

    Obviously if there's a lot more out there about him I haven't seen I'd change my mind. There's a limit to benefit of the doubt.

    That people can think he chose that picture because the baby is mixed race is just flabbergasting.

    There are lots better ways to commit career suicide.

    I've always liked him and yeah I can see it fits with his "monkeys dressed as famous people" theme he's been doing for years but come on. He cannot be unaware of the monkey chants that still go on in football, he cannot have been unaware of the connotations of that image.

    It's beyond just naive stupidity.

    So you think it was a deliberate choice? He sat there and thought "you know what, now is the time to let the world know I'm a massive racist so I'm going to destroy my career and make everybody hate me just so I can make a racist joke on twitter".

    Seriously? He weighed up the pros and cons and decided to go for it? How does that make any sense?

    planetgeli There's no future in England's dreaming

    I think ‘career’ is a strong word for the famous anti-racist Danny Baker. May have peaked with those Daz commercials in the 70s.

    Or you think the sausage sandwich game is high culture?

    He knew what he was doing. And if he didn’t know what he was doing, that’s just as bad.

    In Australia they’d call him a “bloody idiot”. And they’d be right.

    Fan of a racist club. Doesn't bother him.
    Generally a bit of a cunt.
    Totally aware of racial connotations of chimp photos as a result of being a steward at a racist club.

    He did it out of plausible deniability maybe. Who cares what his excuse his. He's got himself sacked before for being a cock. Anyone remember the "You are the cunt" strip from Viz that dealt with that?

    He should go back to doing Win, Lose, or Draw. On his own. In a basement.

    Sorry but if I as a middle aged white woman with a passing interest in football who has not gone through the experiences such as Rutita1 mentioned earlier can see it's racist then you're telling me that someone who has, however tangentially, witnessed such experiences can't see the racial connotations of that image?

    He'll be snapped up by Virgin, Talksport or LBC before long.

    Or advertising Daz.

    And, like I said, I was a Danny Baker fan, I liked listening to his show, I really, really wish he hadn't done this but he has and it's right he was sacked.

    That people like you are so quick to blame us who think he does know and could have done better isn't even flabbergasting anymore it just the same old apologist nonsense.

    DB isn't your old gran or parent from a bygone time when it was alright to link Blackness and monkeys many here are quick to use as an excuse. He is culturally and media savvy. He will also have been aware of the dodegy as fuck racist stuff that has already been posted online because MM is mixed.


    That he didn't think about it is no defence. He didn't think because he doesn't care says all it needs to.

    He has just spent ten minutes on James O'Brien's LBC programme playing the victim ... which included a claim that he was unaware that the Duchess of Sussex / Meghan Markle is of mixed race / bi-racial.

    Fuck off. Millwall IS a racist club and fuck you if you think it's "shit-stirring" to bring that up.
    It isn't.

    But he's extremely media-savvy. He's also been going to football all his life. How on earth wouldn't he realise that tweet was racist?
