Posted in: Episode of UK sitcom 'Fawlty Towers' pulled over racist slurs See in context

It’s been reinstated. Back on UkTV from today.

if you start scrapping films and shows because of potential offence you will open Pandora’s box. Miissippi burning, American history X, Boys in hood, 12yrs a slave. Don’t all these contain controversial content they may offend certain groups or is it ok to offend some but not others..

I watched shows from the 50s/ 60s as a teenager in the 80s and was able to put it into context as ‘it was different back then’ why the heck can’t people do that today.

‘The district court last December ordered Yamaguchi, a biographer of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, to pay 3.3 million yen in damages to Ito, recognizing he "had sexual intercourse without the consent of Ito, who was in a state of intoxication and unconscious’

Correct me if I’m naive and incorrect but is that not rape ???

Monty - But surely that applies to everyone in the entire world ? Anyone could test negative and catch is 10mins later on the train, supermarket etc. This hasn’t stopped mass testing in the US, the UK, Korea etc.

Bruce Chatwin. Can you please post each day. Keep me updated :) as We are clearly on the same page. You can’t account for what’s not made accountable. These figures are an utter sham. And Mrs ‘Olympics’ Koike is a utter disgrace playing this emergency card now when she clearly prioritized the Olympics above people welfare just 2 weeks ago.

Wanderlust is absolutely spot on. So much of that AV is geared towards forced / coerced intercourse. And ‘the virgins till 30’ merely learn about sex that way or pervy manga. Very sad state of affairs for a nation that considers itself ‘ oh so honorable’

I must say though,,your title name is very apt regarding your comment.. Lol

Yubaru : Actually I think you may be showing a little naivety here. To a larger extent that's exactly how the money wheels turn regarding large corporations/institutions. Not sure if you are employed in or are familiar with the inner dealings of current high-finance industry but the reality is the checks on financial deals/transfers are by far more strictly upheld for the individual or small-to-middle sized companies when amounts seems a little high than the big Cs. For large financial transfers between two parties that regularly deal in figures of this area, depending on the relationships of those involved, the checks can most certainly be minimal.It is a very common practice "Don't worry about that paperwork Mr Miura"..

Having said that, there is absolutely zero possibility of him being able to carry this out without the board knowing. There would be numerous factors/items that would be apparent and if not picked up on then merely goes to show it was either collusive or common practice. Guilty or not this drawn out detainment is a farce.
