Tyson Fury: Who Cares?

To the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year, then, a contest whose sensational irrelevance stands in inverse proportion to its tendency to become every year’s most fiercely fought culture war. Ideally each year’s show should start with an inclusive song and dance number scripted by South Park’s Matt Stone and Trey Parker, in which hilariously outrageous offence is given to all.

This year’s agonies are down to new heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, with a petition for the BBC to remove his name from the Sports Personality of the Year shortlist for homophobic and sexist comments. I really hope you take online petitions massively seriously, because by the time we get to the Spoty broadcast on 20 December, it will probably have outstripped the 182,000 signatories against bombing Syria. It doesn’t take a scientist to tell you that means it’s more important than going to war. Which is lucky, as you couldn’t find a scientist to tell you that...

Well said, but anything that annoys the big gay cry babies is fine by me, so I'm voting for the colossal fuckwit. 

PS God this is tedious...

PS On and on and on...
