I love it.
Radio 4 outrage is the best.
Gary Bellamy: Our next caller is Stuart Hill from Gloucester. What's your point, Stuart?
Caller 1: Well, my point is this. It's ironic, isn't it, that the once-proud African man, standing on one leg, looking out across the Kalahari desert, once master of all he surveyed, is now exacting a terrible revenge, after centuries of repression, removed from his homeland and subjugated ... is now bringing the white man to his knees by issuing parking tickets willy-nilly. And I feel that it actually demeans both the African man and the European man, that we are now waging a war with parking tickets, pieces of paper and bureaucracy, over this silly notion that no, you can't park your car there, or you can park your car, for example, there.
Bellamy: It certainly is ironic. It's a good point - or is it racist? I'll tell you what - it would be great to hear from someone from the black community to get their views on that, or, in fact, to get their views on anything. So come on: ring in if you're black.
it is hilarious that Radio 4 listeners thought it was genuine and just a terrible programme.
i loved that first episode where the the bloke says 'Whenever I see a man of colour I approach and greet him, shake him firmly by the hand and say Welcome to Great Britain!'
only marginally funnier than real phone-in shows, though, especially late-night ones where all the conspiracy theorists ring in, blaming everything on MI5/CIA/Masons/Mossad/the Duke of Edinburgh/immigrants/JFK/aliens.
if only i had a radio.
from the Radio 4 site. 'Listen again', innit, though you can only hear the most recent one.
