This week, Jeremy Paxman became the latest BBC presenter to say the most taboo word in the English language live on air.
Mr Paxman (not to be confused with Top Gear’s main man Jeremy Clarkson) dropped the shocker during his Newsnight programme on January 31st, when he said: ‘Supposing some of the people who ought to be paying taxes so the c**** … cuts… aren’t so bad aren’t actually doing so?’
This latest blue outburst is the SIXTH time in the last few months that the BBC has broadcast the expletive, adding fuel to the rumour that the corporation is deliberately trying to blue up the airwaves.
“People have started to wonder if the BBC is intentionally using the C-word as often as they can,” said serious TV watcher Ennie Station. “Maybe they keep doing it so that they can keep their name in the papers? Whatever the reason, it’s really odd that they were once renowned for their excellent English and now it seems they are the rudest broadcaster out there. Personally, I think it’s a fucking disgrace!”
Swearing Jeremy Paxman can now join the likes of Nicky Campbell who accused the Countryside Alliance of being ‘pro-c***ing’, James Naughtie and Andrew Marr, who both called the Culture Secretary ‘Jeremy C***’. Government Minister Nick Herbert who stated: “I don’t accept that those are c***s… er… cuts in front-line policing.” And Olly Foster, who slipped the C-word in while introducing the French footballing legend Eric Cantona, adding “Great to see Eric C*** Cantona.”
