The BBC.. a globalist metrosexual Pravda dressed in open neck shirts and ludicrous retro-specs. The web will kill them stone dead,. Like all waning dictatorships, they are just too drunk with hubris to see what everyone else can - that their little in-club is toast.

Danny Bakers explanation wasn't 'Plausible'? I don't think that guy knows what Plausible means. He mean 'probable'. VERY different context.

How can intent be irrelevant when it comes to such an emotive issue as racism? He did not have racism in his mind, so he was not being racist - full stop! So what if it can be "interpreted" as racism?

PC liberals.... Come back when you can say you have never said anything in your life that can be construed as racist. There isn't a person alive that hasn't said something that could be perceived xenophobic, bigoted, racist. Thats how evil these socialists who masquarde as Liberals are. They are oppressive bully's, only in groups though. They give rise to the notion we can all be bullies if given an opportunity.

Nice impression of that imbecile Danny Baker, Emma. BTW you're not any relation to the famous brothelkeeper/people trafficker, Ian Barnet, are you? If he put on a blonde wig, he'd be the splitting image of you. https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/05/emma-barnett-a-classic-philip-cross-wikipedia-operation/comment-page-1/#comments

I am fairly sure if some left wing Comedian had tweeted something ''amusing'' about the Royal family's supposed German origins , like a baby in spiked helmet   would not have been sacked , as idiots like the late and not missed Jeremy Har and the ridiculous Mark Steel do it on panel shows constantly

0:03 this photo looks much like any other Royal baby op to me.. i would not have known at a glance whether it was kate or the other one who is NOT 100% snow white.. that is only an issue for the people infatuated with the minutiae of the Royals lives.. any person who is genuinely upset by racism as a problem is more concerned with the countless thousands of brown skinned people inc children killed by UK military in the name of the crown..

He's a victim of his own stupidity, if you work in the media you know you can't put out tweets or statements that could be construed as: Sexist, Racist, Homophobic, Anti-Semitic etc. Also did he put out similar tweets when the other recent royal babies were born?

WTF political correctness is such a fucking joke. That "photo" is just plain bullshit and obviously set up to show "just how multi cultural we are" its like the constant bombardment of tv commercials showing black men with white woman and half cast/mixed race kids. Its offensive to think that this is FORCED onto the public and that a black man will discard black woman to be "multi cultural" or vice versa. Government needs to face up to what they have done and caused

he called, refereed to prince Harris baby as a monkey. he should be in prison never to work in the media ever again he exposed him self being a racist. the thing with racist white people which we all are we end up turning on each other. prince Harris wife is white....her father is white. you are what your father is not your mother. history is very important we enslaved a entire race of people calling them monkeys and apes. joke or not. if this was back in 16 century he would have his head cut off.........

Well up to the point when he made this big transgression, I had never heard of the bloke so he has achieved infamy at a stroke but TBH......the discussion is a relevant and pertinent one but seems to have been 'cherry picked' by the BBC, as many comments below point out

Claims that the BBC sacking a well known Leftie some how proves that the BBC has a Left leaning political bias is staggeringly illogical. If anything it reflects a right wing bias. But such comments show just how desperate English nationalists are to protect poster boy Tommy Yaxley Lennon from public scrutiny. 90% of commenters here are obviously Tommy "Robinson" cronies.

using decades old saville crimes to a current situation is somewhat banal @saddaddrummer and wouldnt it be good to get rid of i'm great can do anything as i'm almost famous culture in this era danny baker was on a limited contract and was either drunk or did a smollett. good riddance to bad rubbish. i hope that media are learning lessons.

i always thought baker was a self inflated twat myself and a annoying presense.......body of work?.....eh...he ist terry fucking wogan ffs..he aint at that level lol.. but....i thought his tweet was funny....i bet old prince phillip thought it was aswell in his head.. cant we take the piss out of ourselves?.....if a black couple had a pic with a pig making out it was a little white baby id bloody laugh... im sure mr baker and mr evans will have more time to spend there moneys together and go binge drinking like the good old days. there was a time when we fought the likes of that presenter who worked with danny at rourkes drift... deep down its about us losing our identity....the royal family trying to look all modern and hip by getting the young trendy prince to break the mould and marry and impregnate what would be a slave species in there eyes behind closed doors..... i can imagine the queen grimasing with a fake smile as she offers a digestive wearing a extra pair of those white gloves she has to her "guests".... phillip mistakingly asks the mother most mornings how she got out the big house..... it would make a great sit com bbc
