Dear oh dear!
Nanny really does get her knickers in a twist when it comes to religion, one might almost think that she was a bit religious herself. That of course would be unthinkable, as we all know that religion and politics should not mix!
Anyhoo, this time Nanny has decided to try to be fair; she knows that a lot of you have been worried about her alleged anti Christian bias. You know the sort of thing; the word Christmas banned, crosses removed from registry offices etc.
This time dear old Nanny has decided to ban the word Muslim.
Her lackeys on London's Underworld railway have decided that a poster for the new TV thriller about a Muslim spy is just way toooooo offensive. Therefore they have banned it.
The poster advertises the American series Sleeper Cell, and shows a man on a mobile phone with the tagline "America's latest hero is a Muslim straight out of jail".
Nanny's toads in the London Underworld railway decided that the words were offensive, and have refused to have it on platform walls unless the word " Muslim" is removed.
A spokesman for London Underworld said:
"The text on this poster is clearly intended to be sensationalist and could give offence.
Following consultation with Viacom, which manages advertising on the Tube, it was decided to ask for the words 'is a Muslim' to be removed.
This decision was taken in line with our standard policies which seek to avoid gratuitously insulting large groups of Londoners."
Is the same Underworld system that gratuitously features posters of scantily dressed women, thus potentially offending 50% of the population of London?
Sleeper Cell is about an undercover FBI Agent called Darwyn Al Sayeed, who infiltrates a terrorist cell.
Now the subtle point here is that the Muslim is shown to be a "good guy", unlike so many films which portray Muslims as crazed loons intent on world destruction; the hero is trying to save lives.
You would have thought that had Nanny used her limited brains, she would have noted that this film kind of tries to redress the balance a bit.
A spokesman for FX, the channel which airs the series, said the channel was "shocked" by the decision.
"The line 'America's latest hero is a Muslim straight out of prison' is meant to sum up the basis of the show's plot.
The show's hero is put in prison in order to gain access to the cell he aims to investigate and eventually expose.
It is in no way intended to cause offence or upset to Muslims."
It is the first American TV drama to feature a Muslim as the lead heroic character, and I would suggest a much needed and late attempt to redress the appalling media bias.
Needless to say, in Nanny's world details and facts are for the small people (ie us), she only deals with the "broader picture".
