Woke and the BBC

Woke and the BBC

If there's one word I hate it is woke. It's a horrible sounding word but I'm starting to warm to it's nasty pigeon English side.

Woke-ness and the BBC go hand in hand as this organisation seeks it out in shovels. Take this article by them:

Body size: Children asked 'are you much too fat' in survey, BBC News, 13th of November 2021.

Who writes this shit and who do they get to appear in this sort of dribble content?

In this latest episode of bullshit from the BBC we read about how people were offended by a questionnaire asking how fat or thin you are. Here is the so-called offending questionnaire:

A screenshot of a questionnaire that apparently has people fainting in the aisles.

The BBC couldn't even bring themselves to show the image and mask it with the warning: "The BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites." Seriously!

Here's a list of few comments from people:

Former politician Bethan Sayed said: the "absurd" question could see more children developing eating disorders

Children's commissioner for Wales Sally Holland said she understood the "alarm the question has caused, particularly considering the topic's sensitivity and its strong links to mental health".

So, now asking someone their weight has links to mental health!

Snowflake UK

This reminded me of the food exam question a couple years back: Snowflake UK, in which a student had to leave the examination room in a fit of panic after being asked the piss easy question:

"There are 84 calories in 100g of banana. There are 87 calories in 100g of yogurt. Priti has 60g of banana and 150g of yogurt for breakfast. Work out the total number of calories in this breakfast."

How do such people survive in the real world? I suppose they make their way either to the church, academia or public sector.
