Guido understands that Stephanie Kemp and Barbara Wiltshire, the producer and director of Frankie Boyle’s New World Order have been reported to Durham Constabulary in relation to an offence under Section 22 of the Public Order Act 1986, over including in a programme service material likely to stir up racial hatred, along with Sophie Ducker, the comedian using the words in question.
The complaint is also against the BBC, which caused the material to be included in a programme service. The exact same complaint that was made against Darren Grimes.
The relevant section of the Public Order Act cited in the complaint is:
(1) If a programme involving threatening, abusive or insulting visual images or sounds is included in a programme service], each of the persons mentioned in subsection (2) is guilty of an offence if—
(a) he intends thereby to stir up racial hatred, or
(b) having regard to all the circumstances racial hatred is likely to be stirred up thereby.
(2) The persons are—
(a) the person providing the programme service,
(b) any person by whom the programme is produced or directed, and
(c) any person by whom offending words or behaviour are used.
Guido previously described the episode, which was terrible, as Frankie Boyle’s New Woke Marxist Discussion Group. Even so this is an unwelcome tit-for-tat move after the Darren Grimes nonsense with the Metropolitan Police. The law as it stands needs amending to stop this nonsense and protect freedom of speech…
Despite incoming BBC Director General Tim Davie’s warning about left-wing ‘comedy’ on the broadcaster, it looks like those in charge of output didn’t get the memo. The latest episode of Frankie Boyle’s New World Order is a particularly over the top example. Boyle is joined by three woke ‘comedians’; Sara Pascoe, Sophie Duker and Jamali Maddix, who all nod enthusiastically as “capitalist myths” are discussed and that “whiteness is a capitalist structure”. Torturously dull woke viewing…
To compound the bizarre nature of the lecturing left-wing comedy the BBC now choses to commission is it hasn’t always been this way. Frankie Boyle used to be the most unwoke and politically incorrect in his comedy, now he hosts weekly televised discussion groups for Marxist comedians. What happened to you, Frankie?
Or does Boyle recognise his decline in to wokery? As he admitted at the end of his most recent BBC show “I’m just a relic from the dying world of a type of comedy that will soon rightly be erased from history.” The struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.
