BLUE PETER - 50 YEARS OF HYPOCRISY!
BLUE PETER is celebrating it's 50th anniversary, but in true Blue Peter style whole chunks of their history have been air brushed from history.
BP portrays itself as a family, but what kind of family dumps its members and treats them like social pariahs, offering them no chance of rehabilitation or redemption.
Biddie (Bitchy) Baxter sacked 1980's presenter Michael Sunden believing that he might be gay. Not even Michael's death in the late 80's of an Aids related illness was enough to bring him back into the fold, it's as if he never existed.
Then of course there was the Richard Bacon incident. Richard's invitation to the 50th anniversary celebrations must have been lost in the post!
Shame on Blue Peter . . .
