Being out of the UK this week, I missed the furore over the comments made by ITV football pundit "Big Ron" Atkinson. His use of the word "nigger" was deemed racist and he promptly resigned from his TV and newspaper contracts. Whilst I thnk he was an idiot to say what he did, I also think the howls of outrage from the PC lobby are sickening. I mean, the "N" word is used in my favourite song by Elvis Costello "Oliver's Army."

As the song puts it, "One more widow one less white nigger" Is Elvis a racist too? Atkinson was a fool but not a racist, as anyone who knows his record as a Football manager can confirm.
