Prat of The Week - Auntie

Congratulations to Auntie for winning this week's Prat of The Week Award.

Her handling of the David Lowe "Sun Has Got His Hat On" affair was ham fisted and "Stalinist" to say the least.

Mr Lowe on his nostalgia radio show "Swingers and Stingers" played an 82 year old version "The Sun Has Got His Hat On" by Ambrose & His Orchestra. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to Mr Lowe, the recording contained the "N" word. A listener complained, and Mr Lowe offered to make an on air apology or "fall on his sword".

Auntie, fretting over the potential damage to her reputation, decreed that he should resign and make no mention of the incident.

As per the Telegraph (note the BBC don't seem to have given as much detail on its news site):
"BBC sent him an email in which it was stated “we would prefer that you don’t mention anything about last week’s broadcast”. A further and final email informed him: “Regrettably ... we will have to accept your offer to fall on your sword.
Can you guess what happened next children?

Yes, that's right, the affair became public and Auntie has done a volte farce and offered Mr Lowe his job back.

Mr Lowe said that, in his case at least, “where political correctness is concerned in the UK today, there is no room for excuses or forgiveness”.
Auntie, well deserving Prat of The Week!
