  1. I’m not sure what i think about this, i think Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a sick creature, but i think allowing him to broadcast will show that we not hypocrites and allow free speach

    soo change the channel. I just would wonder what kind of Christian message this miserable tyrant would give any way, but Hey like I said-chnage the channel.

  3. Allowing a radical militant ‘anti-Christian’ to deliver a Christmas address? Why not have Hitler celebrate Hannukah? There’s a limit to free speech when it promotes homicide!

  4. I despise Christianity and the royal family, but would sooner see Her Maj than this theocratic thug any day.

    Either way it matters not; I am usually on my third or fourth shot of Macallan by about 3pm and will be too drunk to care anyway

  5. Well, this is living proof that “media types” are totally out of touch with reality

    It looks to me like somebody at your network just thinks they’re being smart-chic. It doesn’t matter. Twenty years from know, nobody will remember this guy’s name.

    Who is it next year the Pope or Mugarbe

  8. Channel Four must have considered the upshot of this decision. They must have weighed up the hurt caused to gay people and Jews against the radical credibility and controversy they’d stir up.

    They made their decision: fuck the gays and fuck the Jews.

    It’s as transparent as if they’d asked a convicted Pedophile. Shallow, hopeless, insulting, good-for-nothing, downright evil programming, by stupid arseholes.

  9. Eric, I think you’ve hit the nail on the head there!
