So near and yet so far BBC
I was listening to BBC 5 Live yesterday evening, after 10pm, and they went to Russia to interview an average England football team supporter. Being the diversity obsessed BBC, the female supporter referred to her girlfriend. Gender equality and LGBT in one interview, I can just imagine the BBC presenter and producer in seventh heaven.
Then the nice lesbian lady said that she'd had a good time there with a lovely Israeli group; the Israeli party was 15,000 people and they didn't even qualify for the World Cup. The interview came to an end: nice, friendly, Israelis not being the sort of subject that the BBC want any listeners to hear.
Poor BBC, so near and yet so far!
